Are you interested in botanical art? The Society of Botanical Artists of the Netherlands is showing work in the exhibition “Bulb flowers’ at museum de zwarte tulp in Lisse.
The area is getting ready for all the visitors in the next weeks. From the outside you can see that the bike rental is placed at the new parking lot at Keukenhof. And the bulb sellers are setting up their shops along the roads.
Then it’s time to get acquainted with the Dutch glasshouse construction. This fascinating sector opens on Saturday 2nd and Sunday, April 3rd, 2016 its doors of the greenhouses. Visit the Greenhouses is the name of this annual event in which more than two-hundred hospitable vegetable, flower and plant growers participate.
We are happy to announce that we have added new tickets to our list! Since this week the tickets with public transportation and the tours to Keukenhof with a visit to a bulb farm are available at our site. Have a look to the full range of tickets and tours.
The past week the weather turned a bit colder than before. We have freezing temperatures at night and during the daytime we have sometimes some sunshine.
The Keukenhof theme for 2016 is “The Golden Age”. The era in which the Netherlands went through a flourishing period in the field of trade, arts and sciences. This was also the period in which the world was discovered and the tulip trade thrived.
Every year many tourists visit the Keukenhof to see all kinds of tulips. But wouldn’t it be a great idea to see the tulips in the city of Amsterdam as well? Landscape architect Saskia Albrecht decided after visiting the Tulip Festival in Istanbul to organize a tulip festival in the city of Amsterdam.
Every now and than I come across something typical Dutch in a new way. All the people who have travelled to the Netherlands will remember the Dutch Kissing Couple. You can find them in all shapes and formats at the tourist- and souvenir shops.
I spend some time at airport hotels outside the Netherlands so when I was invited for the tour and opening of the Hilton Airport Schiphol I was curious how airport hotels looked like in the Netherlands. I really wanted to know if the Hilton Airport Schiphol Hotel could be a match for the readers of Tulips in Holland.
Since last week we are offering individual tickets to Keukenhof (incl. parking tickets) and tours from Amsterdam to Keukenhof with our new partner Ticketbar. Ticketbar offer tickets and tours around
