With 7 million flower bulbs planted annually, Keukenhof Gardens is the world’s largest flower garden! The sheer amount of photographs I took at Keukenhof is evident of how enthralled and captivated I was by 79 acres of flowers in all colours, shapes and sizes. Open only in mid-March to mid-May, I was so thankful to be in Amsterdam at the mid-April high season!
We took 35-minute bus ride from Amsterdam city centre to Schiphol Airport, from which we bought the combi-tickets for 23 Euros, inclusive of entrance fees to Keukenhof as well as the bus journeys to and from Schiphol.
Along the way to Keukenhof, there were so many private tulip farms and very grand, colourful fields of tulips!! Most of which are private farms though.
Keukenhof’s entrance looked small, but the park extends from this point on. Here’s my collection of floral eye-candies taken with Panasonic GF6, unfiltered and unedited. Took way too many but photographs like these are never enough. Enjoy and feel free to take or use these photos ^^
That’s it for now! I will be posting more photographs in Part Two where we ventured deeper into the park! In fact I’m barely scraping the entrance of the park here…the place is that huge.
Spring is so beautiful.
