A free internet visit to Keukenhof, the famous tulip garden in Holland
There’s no other place like it on earth. And whether you’ve heard of the world-famous 79-acre Tulip Garden in Lisse, Holland or not, here’s your chance to have a great look at it all without leaving home. It’s named Keukenhof, (Kew’-ken-hoff) and is visited by more than 800,000 people during its 8-week opening in spring, when the tulips bloom. 7 million bulbs are planted each year.
These days, the Dutch tulip growers donate the bulbs, and the garden is open to visitors for approximately 8 weeks for bloom time–in March and April. Needless to say, it’s one of Holland’s most popular tourist attractions. But why wait until you can go? Simply click on the link below, and you’ll be there, with years and years of breathtaking photos to drool over. You’ll also have a great guide.
It’s all on a fantastic blog I found called CheeseWeb, run by a Canadian couple who know all about Keukenhof, and their blog is so full of stunning photos you’ll never forget it. Alison Cornford-Matheson is a freelance writer and photographer, and her husband, Mark, is as she puts it, is a “corporate refugee” from the tech world. They are now travel pros, producing articles, videos, and other things about their favorite places. Keukenhof is definitely one of them. Just click below, scroll down, and you’ll see:
