private tour Keukenhof by Hans Langh Netherlands private tours
#Keukenhof flower gardens:
Millions of flowers in thousands of colours. More than 7 million flower bulbs and 800 varieties of flowering tulips.
The gardens and pavilions show a spectacular collection of not only tulips, but also hyacinths, daffodils, roses, irises, lilies, orchids and many other flowers.
Keukenhof (its name means ‘kitchen garden’), started as the small kitchen garden of a 15th-century countess and evolved into the largest flower garden in Europe. It is the Netherlands most popular sight. The garden is open only for eight weeks in the spring.
Blooming depends mainly on the seasons and temperature. After a cold winter, the flowers will bloom later. After warmer winter, the flowers will bloom earlier. To see the actual status follow my ‘tulip alert’ on this website.
From 21st of March 2019 until 19th of May 2019 Keukenhof is open.
Love is in the air because next year the central theme will be ‘Flower Power’.
World’s largest flower auction in Aalsmeer.
The flower auction starts really earlie. Most of the action is in the opening hour. So the earlier you get there, the more you see. The auction is open to the public on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays.
you can follow the entire auction process from a special gallery and feel like standing at the center of the international flower trade.
Did you know that more than three quarters of worldwide flower bulbs traded come from the Netherlands and the majority are tulips.
With my van we will drive over the small country roads along the flower fields, with many opportunities for photo stops. Beside of the region around the Keukenhof area other beautiful fields are at the Beemster polder, the provinces Flevoland and North Holland.
