Tulips Daffodils at Hortus Bulborum Botanical garden Holland

Hortus Bulborum
Botanical garden

On this tour, we will start at your hotel in Amsterdam and drive to the Hortus Bulborum in Limmen, near Alkmaar, north of Amsterdam.
This is the only garden in the world where you will find over 2500 different Tulips, Hyacinths, Daffodils, and other bulbs all in flower, but not all at the same time.

Each spring, the hortus is packed full of vivid colors. Fundamental in this garden, however, is the preservation of old cultivars. Hortus Bulborum shows Tulips dating back to the year 1595 and Daffodils of the year 1603. This garden aims to maintain these cultivars and safeguard them for the future. The current cultivar collection contains 2000 Tulip varieties, 50 Hyacinth varieties, 1000 Daffodils varieties, 20 Iris varieties, 50 Crocus varieties, etc.

After Hortus, we will drive along flowering bulb fields with Daffodils, Hyacinths, Tulips, etc., north of Amsterdam.

If we pass by a flowering field, we will stop to take pictures of you and your friends

between the fields of flowers.

After the tour through the bulb fields, we might stop for lunch (not included) at a restaurant between the flowering bulb fields.

Fritillaria and Tulips at Keukenhof Lisse Holland


 After lunch, we will drive to the Keukenhof region, south of Amsterdam.
Keukenhof is located where Tulip and bulb growing started in the 1600s.
It attracts more than 1 million visitors every year in March, April, and May.
Keukenhof started in 1949 as an initiative of bulb growers and traders to promote bulbs to the public.
Every year, Keukenhof and its suppliers introduce new varieties of Tulips, Hyacinths, etc.
For instance, Fritillaria (see yellow flowers in the picture) has become famous by showing them in Keukenhof.
We will escort you through the park with new garden designs every year. We can easily spend 3 hours in this 80-acre park with 9.4 miles of pathways.
Beside the gardens are four pavilions with all kinds of flower shows.
After Keukenhof, we will return to your hotel.
