Spring bursts into bloom in the Netherlands

The flowers of the Keukenhof may not be in bloom for long, but when they are, the show is like no other on earth. The garden is in Lisse (35 km from Amsterdam) and only opens from 23 March to 21 May. It is known as the Garden of Europe and contains 7 million bulbs and about 800 varieties of tulips. However, the Netherlands doesn’t live off tulips alone; there is enough room for the fragrance of other flowers like hyacinths, daffodils, orchids, roses, carnations and lilies. In all, it’s 32 hectares dotted with old windmills, lakes and fountains that add the final touch to this bucolic and colourful scene.
