Enjoy some flower power this Spring
Today kicks off Keukenhof Spring Garden, home to Europe’s largest and most beautiful display of horticultural exuberance, featuring millions of daffodils, fragrant hyacinths and more varieties of tulips than imaginable!
Every year the garden attracts thousands of visitors and this year will be no exception. With 2015 marking the 125th anniversary of Van Gogh’s death, Keukenhof Gardens will pay a floral tribute to the life and works of the 19th century post-impressionist artist, with park’s theme “Van Gogh: 125 years of inspiration”. The highlight of the park will undoubtedly be the flower mosaic based on a self-portrait by the artist. The mosaic will measure 250 square metres and is planted using different colours of tulips.
Visitors will able to take organised Van Gogh 2015 tours organised by Keukenhof and museums such as Van Gogh Museum and The Kröller-Müller Museum.
Keukenhof is open from 20 March until 17 May 2015, inclusive. To book tickets or for more information, visit: www.keukenhof.nl
