Keukenhof Flower Fields
- Location: Lisse, Netherlands
While this territory is known as “Keukenhof,” many know it as the “Garden of Europe.” Technically, this garden is part of the overall Keukenhof Park which covers an area of 32 hectares or 79 acres. Roughly 7 million flower bulbs are planted in these gardens each year. However, the main thing the park is known for is its iconic tulip fields. Of course, many other flowers grow here too such as daffodils, lilies, carnations, roses, irises, and hyacinths. It should be noted that you cannot just go here any time you want. For 8 weeks from mid-March to mid-May for the Tulip Display, the garden is open to the general public. Yet it is only open for private affairs and festivals the rest of the year. One would assume that would affect tourism in the area, but it has not. In fact, the restrictions make it an even bigger attraction.
