Enjoy the first Keukenhof tulip picture of 2009: a single Greigii tulip with a little morning dew standing out of the 7 million other Keukenhof tulips.
Apert from the millions of tulips, Keukenhof presents its visitors with all other spring flower bulbs like narcissus, hyacinths. Also showcased are shrubs, water arrangements, fountains and a dozen of art works:
Keukenhof Amsterdam tulips surrounding artworks.
2009 theme: USA, New Amsterdam – New York, 400 years.
This Keukenhof spring flower season from March 19 till May 21 will focus on the historical relationship between the Netherlands and the US.
400 years ago, Henry Hudson, on behalf of the Dutch East Indian Company set foot on what is now Manhattan but then became New Amsterdam. .
Now called New York, thecity was originally founded by the Dutch and Dutch history and names (Harlem...) still play an important role nowadays.
A humongous Keukenhof Tulips flower mosaic of the Statue of Liberty, using more than 25,000 bulbs has been created.
Visitors will be able to follow an amazing American themed spring flowers route and see an American style garden.
Of course you will be able to buy fresh flowers, but when you are traveling, we recommend you buy tulips or other flower bulbs, plant them in autumn and enjoy a Keukenhof tulip in your garden next spring season!
