The exhibition will last only two months, where you can see millions of fragrant flowers. I will tell the story of the tulip and guide you past flowering fields to pavilions with rare varieties. And on the other part of the tour, you will see the main sights of the city and understand how its outlines changed as it developed.

I'll cover the major trade companies and the war of liberation, while historical maps show you how the city grew
Colorful fields On the way to Keukenhof, we will stop at the flowering fields so that you can take pictures of amazing beauty. In the park, you will find bright flower beds with thousands of different varieties of very different colors. Greenhouse pavilions and open flower beds, cut bouquets and landscaping ideas for small gardens - this exhibition will be of interest to both amateurs and professionals. I will tell you about rare types of flowers and the distribution of the tulip throughout Europe. You will hear about Tulip Mania and the reasons for the appearance of this term. And even take a master class on making bouquets and take part in choosing the most beautiful flower of the year
