Keukenhof is one of the world’s largest flower gardens contains seven million bulbs, creating a magnificent rainbow of colours and you can see it in full bloom on a Shearings tour.
Tulips have for a long time been associated with the history of the Netherlands and its time as an economic powerhouse in the 17th century. The legacy of the plant continues at Keukenhof Gardens where this stunning plant has been blooming in the gardens of a former merchant’s castle for more than 100 years.
At Shearings you can join a number of different tours to explore the gardens at Keukenhof along with great attractions and cities across the Low Countries.
Keukenhof can be reached with us on coach tours and by cruise with travel, accommodation and great excursions to discover the gardens and other great destinations included.
The gardens spread over a massive 32 hectares, with a huge variety of different styles of garden providing an interesting layout of the Tulips. In the English landscape garden you can wander along winding paths among the beautiful tulips. The historical garden features old types of bulb from an age when the cultivation of the flowers had just started and makes an interesting comparison to the modern bulbs you’ll see elsewhere. Before you leave you can even buy some of the magnificent bulbs to take away with you!
Some Keukenhof tours coincide with the Flower Parade with flower covered floats covering a 40km route passing the gardens themselves.
Selected tours also include a visit to Brussels and the amazing Floralia Brussels show, with more than 1 million tulip bulbs, of nearly 400 varieties on show across 14 hectares.
