Keukenhof sees spring approaching with opening March 22

March 1, 2018

On March 22, 2018, Keukenhof will be opening its gates for the 69th time. When it closes eight weeks later, some 1 million visitors from across the world will have visited the international flower exhibition. As such, Keukenhof makes a contribution to tourism in the Netherlands. One hundred bulb growers will supply bulbs to the park and 500 growers participate in the flower shows.

2018 theme: Romance in flowers

In 2018, Keukenhof will be dedicated to Romance in Flowers. After all, romance and flowers are inextricably linked. The most beautiful spring park in the world with its sea of flowers will put you in a romantic spring mood.

The historic park was designed at the height of the Romantic period (1857) as an ornamental garden for Castle Keukenhof. Since 1950, millions of tulips have flowered in the atmospheric garden around the pond, with its great views and ancient beech trees. Many generations have experienced their moment of joy here.

Propose to your fiancée in the romantic tulip garden or have a secret rendezvous in the Cupid Garden. Say it with flowers ….

The flower shows will also be dedicated to the Romantic era. The rose show will be bigger than ever: the red rose, the symbol of true love.

In 2018, Keukenhof will once again have a wonderful tulip mosaic consisting of some 50,000 bulbs.

The Keukenhof season will conclude with Romance in Keukenhof, a festival with classical music in the park between the tulips.
