Keukenhof Flower Festival

Keukenhof
Lisse , Netherlands
23 Mar-21 May 2017
Keukenhof Flower Festival is an event and I like events. Keukenhof Flower Festival is the most well known tulip festival in the world and Keukenhof is the home of the Holland’s annual tulip festival. The Dutch festival is located just south of Amsterdam in the small town of Lisse. Keukenhof in the Netherlands claims to be the world’s largest flower park. Each year, Keukenhof is open only two months in spring each year to show off the best of Dutch tulips, crocuses, narcissus (daffodils), and other bulb flowers. It’s a fun day trip from the capital for flower and garden enthusiasts or you could include it in a road trip around the Netherlands.The variety of flowers and colors at Keukenhof are overwhelming – around 7 million flower bulbs are planted in this famous 32-ha (80-acre) garden every year. Some of the best and most interesting tulips are in the indoor pavilions. The pavilions are where you’ll see just about every tulip colour and type imaginable and these are in flower for the entire festival. They’re always experimenting with new colours and types of tulips. You’ll find singles and doubles in the most amazing colours. If you love tulips or flowers or gardening in general you’ll love Keukenhof.

History of Keukenhof:

The history of Keukenhof, the name of meaning 'kitchen garden', goes back to the 15th century. Countess Jacqueline of Bavaria, Jacoba van Beieren (1401-1436) gathered fruit and vegtables from the woods and dunes her for the kitchen of Teylingen Castle. Keukenhof Castle was built in 1641, and the estate grew to an area of over 200 hectares.

Landscape architects Jan David Zocher and his son Louis Paul Zocher, who also designed Amsterdam's Vondelpark, redesigned the castle gardens in 1857. That park, in the English landscape style, still forms the basis of Keukenhof.

In 1949 a group of 20 flower bulb exporters came up with a plan to use the estate for a permanent exhibition of spring-flowering bulbs, signalling the birth of Keukenhof as a spring park. The park opened its gates tot he public in 1950 and was an instant success, with 236,000 visitors in the first year alone.

Keukenhof  Flower Festival 2017 mission and objectives:

Keukenhof is the international and independent showcase for the Dutch floricultural sector, with a special emphasis on flower bulbs. In the space of eight weeks Keukenhof shows what the Dutch floricultural sector has to offer. The focus in the park is on the 7 million spring-flowering bulbs, in which the 100 participating companies show their living catalogue. In more than 20 fower shows, 500 flower growers present an enormous variety of cut flowers and pot plants.

Keukenhof is the platform for the Dutch floricultural sector. For the exhibitors and participants in the flower shows, we provide a superb showcase for their bulbs, flowers and plants.

That's what makes Keukenhof an excellent opportunity to network and meet business contacts. Trade events for growers are also organised regularly. Keukenhof has strong links with all of the relevant organisations in the floricultural and tourist sectors.
