The Garden of Europe

Keukenhof is one of the most famous landmarks in the Netherlands. It is The Garden of Europe, full of tulips, orchids, hyacinhts, and hundreds of other different varieties of flowers. On every summer weekend huge masses of people begin to trundle towards the Keukenhof. Cars and busses are blocking all roads leading to Keukenhof for several kilometers. Thousands of tourists from around the world will arrive on the spot to admire the floral arrangements.



If you like the flowers, even a little, I can recommend the Keukenhof warmly. The number and diversity of different flowers varieties is overwhelming. I have to admit that the day was spent wondering around, rather than getting to know the species. Regarding flowers I was able to identify the color, not the variety. If you decide to go to the Keukenhof, avoid weekends at all costs. Sunny weather is not too bad either!
