“If people cannot come to Keukenhof, we will bring Keukenhof to the people.”
This is what the administration of the world’s biggest bulb garden, Keukenhof, said as it launched its annual spring festival—this time, virtually.
The Dutch Government has recently closed a number of public places to prevent the spread of the deadly new coronavirus (COVID-19). So to bring some joy to flower-loving folk, the Netherlands’ most celebrated garden decided to open its gates online through a series of videos featuring what the garden currently looks like.
Home over seven million bulbs and 800 varieties of tulips, Keukenhof is also known as the Garden of Europe and it sure is one of the globe’s most stunning spring gardens.
The 32-hectare attraction situated in the town of Lisse has been around since 1857, and draws in over a million visitors from March to May annually, with 1.5 million visitors recorded last year.
It is best known for its displays of multicolored tulips, daffodils, and hyacinths.
