    Must See: Keukenhof Gardens
    Holland is at its dazzling best in spring. Situated in the town of Lisse, Keukenhof is a magical place which has been welcoming garden lovers since 1949.

The overwhelming kaleidoscope of colour and intense scents cannot fail to impress.
     
    The Keukenhof theme for 2015 is Van Gogh, commemorating 125 years since his death. The main highlight will be a flower mosaic, measuring 250m2 planted using different colours of tulips, based on a self-portrait by the artist.  
    The tulip variety ‘Vincent van Gogh’ will be planted in the Walk of Fame. The works of an Gogh will serve as a wonderful source of inspiration for the many flower shows in the Orange Nassau Pavilion.
