Keukenhof Gardens, located a few miles south of Amsterdam, The Netherlands, in the town of Lisse, is a floral garden that explodes with color for a few weeks each spring from March to May. The main show is the incredible variety of tulips, some 800 varieties or so, plus hyacinths, narcissus-daffodils, lilies and more. There are few other places that can match the sheer number and variety of tulips and other spring flowers of Keukenhof. No wonder that it is one of Europe’s most popular floral gardens attracting huge crowds of visitors annually. For more information on Keukenhof Gardens, see:
