When you think about Holland the first thing that comes to mind are windmills and Tulips. Keukenhof is the world famous park where in spring of every year the tulip, the most popular Dutch flower, is exhibited. 2021 will be no different! 7 million bulbs are already planted! Which is good news to all of us flower lovers!

Keukenhof
Every year millions of visitors come visit Keukenhof unfortunately in 2020 it didn’t due to COVID19 situation but nevertheless the park will be open for its 72th time in 2021.

Its main theme will be  “A world of Colours”. Also this year a special mosaics is made to celebrate Miffy her 65th birthday. Over 2000 hyacinths have been planted. Also Tulips named after Miffy are planted nearby! I am really curious how beautiful it will look in spring!

The park has 6 individual areas named after members of the Dutch royal family. Each with its own flower show. The park map can be downloaded by clicking on the button below.

What are the covid19 measures at Keukenhof?
We don’t know how long the Covid19 situation will last but the Keukenhof park follows the guidelines given for major attractions in the Netherlands:

  • social distancing (keep at least 1.5m between two individuals)
  • additional hygiene measures
  • clear and sufficient information
  • a maximum number of visitors per day and timeslots

My personal opinion: As it is an outdoor park and there is enough ventilation I suppose if they do some crowd control, let the visitors enter the park in timeslots and make one-way walking routes. Then social distancing should be no problem. I’m more concerned about the bus ride to- and from the park where masks are advised
