Keukenhof Gardens

  1. 1. From mid-March until mid-May, the gardens of Keukenhof, Holland are blooming and open to the public. Throngs of people come to see the tulips in bloom. Even the journey to Keukenhof is beautiful as you pass by fields carpeted with amazing colors. And, if you want to buy tulips to take home with you, there are several roadside stands selling tulips for about 5 Euros per 3 or 4 dozen. Beginning in 1949, Keukenhof became an open air museum for flowers. That year, 40 businesses joined together to create Keukenhof. This year, 2002, 92 businesses came to create Keukenhof's exhibits. And, it's not only tulips on display, you'll find daffodils, hyacinths and other flowers. Also, you won't want to miss the rose, bonzai, and orchid pavilions. There are also amazing sculptures within the grounds as well as the required windmill. Arthur
