There are those trips that you want to do at least once in your life, no matter how much of a cliché they are. Well for me that was visiting the Keukenhof. It is one of the biggest tourist attractions in the Netherlands, and I had never been there. not even as a child. So this year I put it on my bucket list for 2018.
And I didn’t go once, I actually got to go twice in a week’s time.
The Keukenhof is known for it’s Tulip fields. Obviously you don’t need to visit the Keukenhof to see the Tulip fields, but there is so much more then just the Tulip fields at the Keukenhof.
In the Keukenhof you will find multiple greenhouse which store an amazing variety of flowers. I have never seen so many sorts of tulips together in my entire life. Besides Tulips, you will find a green house that only holds orchids, in every color imaginable.
Besides the greenhouse you will find flower beds throughout the entire parc. They even planted flower beds to form a Tulip from flowers.
The first day I went to the Keukenhof with a group of fellow photographers. When your main goal is to photograph you can easily spend the entire day there. If you only go to wander through the gardens you can probably get through the entire park in about half a day.
Have you ever visited the Keukenhof?

We hope to visit my parents in Amsterdam next spring and they’ve said they want to take us here. Looks lovely! As do your photos. I love the way the light is hitting the flower (pretty sure it’s not a tulip, but I’m no botanist – ha!) in the second image.
I hope you get to, make sure to visit the park early in the morning to avoid the crowds and go during a weekday if you can. It is defenitly worth a visit, so many different kind of flowers. The flower with the sunlight is actually a tulip that is finished blooming and the leaves are starting to fall! Thank you!
