Video: Keukenhof Gardens

During our Holland cruise we walk through the world famous Keukenhof Gardens. Known as the garden of Europe, with more than 100 acres filled with over 7 million flowering bulbs, we stroll through breathtaking waves of colour on this unforgettable half day excursion.

For six weeks, from the end of March to the middle of May, the 17-acre Keukenhof park and greenhouse complex, founded in 1950, is one of the largest open-air live flower exhibitions in the world. As many as 7 million tulip bulbs bloom every spring, either in hothouses (where they may reach a height of nearly 3 feet) or in flower beds along the sides of a charming lake. In the last weeks of April you can catch tulips, daffodils, hyacinths, and narcissi all flowering simultaneously. In addition there are 50,000 square feet of more exotic blooms under glass.
