Combine the best of two countries by staying in the popular resort of Ostend and enjoy the wonderful floral displays at magical Keukenhof Gardens.
The sensational Keukenhof Gardens are a must-see attraction in Holland, where you can be dazzled by the natural beauty of the excellent floral displays found there. Known for being the second largest flower garden in the whole of Europe, we’ll visit these famous gardens during our holiday, where we’ll be based in Ostend, in Belgium.
As well as visiting the Keukenhof Gardens, our holiday will take us to the popular city of Bruges, where we’ll be able to tour the attractions at leisure. There will be more than enough to keep us busy during our break - with the expansive bulbfields and interesting Bruges available, as well as numerous other optional excursions to choose from, we’ll be able to return home feeling relaxed and rejuvenated.
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. Enjoy the ultimate spring feeling as you tip-toe through the largest flower garden in the world with a myriad of tulips, daffodils, hyacinths, crocuses and other spring flowering bulbs. 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.
