Holland's Keukenhof Gardens—the Largest Flower Garden in the World—Is the Perfect Spring Destination
Spring is in full bloom, and people are visiting flower gardens around the world to enjoy the season's bounty while it's still here. One of the most famous of these attractions is Keukenhof Gardens in the Netherlands, and as Country Living reports, it's only open for a brief window in 2019.
Keukenhof Gardens is the largest flower garden on Earth. Located in Holland, just a 45-minute train ride from Amsterdam, it contains 800 varieties of the tulips the region is famous for. The site is also populated with beds of hyacinths, daffodils, roses, and irises. More than 7 million flowers bloom each spring across the 32 hectares of land, making Keukenhof a bucket-list destination for botanical enthusiasts.
As with the spring season, the gardens' run each year is fleeting: After opening for 2019 on March 21, Keukenhof will close to the public on May 19. But it's not too late for anyone wishing to catch the tail-end of tulip season. Adult tickets are available for $19 online, and the attraction is still open daily between 8 a.m. and 7:30 p.m.
Holland isn't the only place that's famous for its flowers. A farm in west Michigan boasts an giant lavender labyrinth, and Japan’s Ashikaga Flower Park is famous for it's enchanting wisteria tunnels.
