Keukenhof Garden ExhibitionThe Keukenhof Flower Garden is a magnificent springtime exhibition of Dutch bulbs, flowers and plants. With 32 hectares and 15 kilometres of footpaths, this beautiful spring park offers flower shows, themed gardens, artworks, restaurants, boat trips and fun activities for children.

In 2015, Keukenhof celebrated the Dutch artist Vincent Van Gogh. The  2016 theme was the Netherlands Golden Age, and for 2017 the theme is dutch design, reviewing the work of great designers such as Mondriaan and Rietveld.
