Keukenhof Gardens, Netherlands + Must Do Things

D84A3664

Hi Everyone, πŸ™‚

When we posted about our trip to Amsterdam, one place that everyone unanimously suggested was Keukenhof Spring Gardens. There are more than 7 million bulbs in bloom this spring, with a total of 800 varieties of tulips.The tulips fields are spread in a massive space of 32 hectares. So imagine seeing flowers and flowers and flowers miles and miles away. It’s an unbelievable sight. A Tulips heaven. I mean how!

It is pretty much a half day trip if you go via an agency. We stayed at De L’Europe Hotel, which btw is super high on our recommendation list. It was gorgeous , centrally located and with an extra helpful staff. They booked it for us. But every hotel in Amsterdam would have info about the Keukenhof Gardens. And you can totally ask the concierge if you are planning to go there. It’s a gorgeous driveΒ via the countryside of Amsterdam. PS : It is very kids friendly too.

We were so not ready for Amsterdam’s crazy weather. I mean the kind of cold there was felt like we have come to Europe in November- December time. I had a dreamiest dress planned for the place but I rather chose to keep myself warm and wear whatever was comfy. It was a good decision. πŸ˜€ So definitley pack a leather jacket / windcheater if you are visiting Amsterdam in April. We experienced a sunny day, chilly day, and a heavy rainy evening. Quite insane. πŸ˜›

For 2015 they are open from 20th March,2015 to 17th May, 2015

Must do things in Keukenhof Gardens

  • Take pics of the Tulip fields. They come before you reach the actual gardens.
  • Take lots of selfies.:D
  • Don’t pluck flowers. You can buy tulip bulbs from the shops located inside the gardens.
  • Definitely get a pic clicked in those huge wooden clogs.
  • Treat yourself to waffles and strawberries at the gardens.

Have fun! :))

Anyhoo, Sanjeev captured the tulip gardens through his lens in the most beautiful way he could. I hope you enjoy the pics. :))

I have another post to share with you all. Would do it soon. Love you loooads. :))Β
