Every year, more than 800,000 visitors from all over the world visit the small town of Lisse in the Netherlands to experience the great flower show at Keukenhof. This season's show is inspired by the painter Vincent van Gogh.
For a few weeks in spring, when the tulips are in bloom, the Keukenhof (Kitchen Garden) near the village of Lisse in the Netherlands becomes a veritable tourist magnet.
Tulips, daffodils and bands of bright colors: Keukenhof in the Netherlands is Europe’s largest flower garden. It’s only open for two months every year but draws up to one million visitors from around the world.
