Keukenhof, situated in Lisse, The Netherlands, is the world’s largest flower garden.

Keukenhof opens from the last week of March through mid-May. The flower garden was the idea in 1949 by the then-mayor of Lisse, a small town south of Amsterdam. The idea was to have a flower exhibit where growers from all over the Netherlands and Europe could show off their hybrids. Keukenhof is also known as Garden of Europe. Keukenhof has been the world’s largest flower garden that runs throughout spring for over fifty years.
