    There is one windmill on the premises. It is an original Groningen windmill from 1892 and was brough to the Keukenhof in 1957.

    Daffodil

    Daffodil

    The daffodil or trumpet Narcissus, is a bulb-forming flowering plant producing yellow flowers. It is native to northern Europe and widely cultivated there and in North America.

    The daffodils generally bloom in early spring between the end of March and mid April.

    In the Keukenhof you can admire the dark and light yellow daffodils.

    In Belgium, they are also called "Paasbloemen" (Easter flowers) because they always bloom around Easter.

    Tulips

    Tulip

    Tulips are flowers that belong to the lily family. They have large cup-shaped flowers and come in different colours.

    The best time to see these flowers is in the second half of April.

    When I visited the Keukenhof on April 11, there were still many tulips closed.

    Hyacinth

    The hyacinth is a bulbous plant with fragrant bell-shaped flowers. They come in many colours. The one on the pic "Blue Star" was the colour that my friend and I liked the most.

    During our visit, there were many of these flowers in differents colours.

    Lilium show @ Keukenhof

    Its not only all Tulips. I found on the website that a Lilium Show was being held, so I concided my date to visit with this. It was certainly worth going to, and it was included in the admission price, which in 2009 was 13.5 euros.

    Check the Keukenhof website out for whats on when you are visiting.

    Just across the water at the Wilhelmina entrance, you'll find these fun stepping stones.
    Now, I'm not going to tell you how it feels to walk on them, but luckily nobody got wet!
    In the ponds there are various birds that enjoy their life at Keukenhof!

    Keukenhof 2008
    4 more images

    In Keukenhof park there are pavilions which also show off the great varieties of flowers.
    In Pavilion Willem Alexander (the name of our crown prince) you'll be amazed. What struck me most was how tall and huge the tulips were.

    I was there too early, but from 8 May 2008 there will be the largest show of lilies in the world.

    Apart from that you will find demonstrations of flower arranging, art sales, garden/balcony/terrace presentations.

    Do see the five very colour photos in this tip!

    This year (2008) the theme at Keukenhof is 'China' and 'the Olympic games'. The pavilion Oranje Nassau (our royal family's family name) shows flower arrangements within that theme. There are also flower arranging demonstrations.

    TULIPS

    by mel_bee Updated May 14, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    my favourite flowers

    There are so many brightly coloured flowers that even on a rainy day you feel that you really have stepped into a kodak moment! Its a great place to wander around and sit for a while.
    I love purple so I was on the look out for all the different varieties. My favourites were called Chansonette, Ballade, Passionale, Lilac Prince and Queen of the Night. Some of the flowers had names such as Mickey Mouse.
    There are several pavilions amongst the gardens with special exhibitions. I saw an orchid exhibition. Take time here to relax, sit in the sun and admire the colours, it shouldn't be rushed!

    Keukenhof windmill
    1 more image

    This is an original mill, built in 1892 in the province Groningen and was used for polder drainage. The winmill was bought by the Holland America Line and brought to Keukenhof, now 51 years ago.

    In front of the windmill you see a typical bridge that you will find in larger versions all over The Netherlands.

    Obviously, as you can see in the photo, you can have a look inside!

    Here's a typical cycle route with tulip bulb theme:

    I know, it is in Dutch. But it has a little map and it starts in Lisse, round to Noordwijkerhout, in a circle.

    In the photos you'll get an impression of what you'll see.
