What is the Keukenhof theme for 2024?

This year is very special because the exhibition celebrates its 75th anniversary. On March 1st, the beginning of meteorological spring, it was decided in 1949 to organize a flower exhibition. Thus, the idea for Keukenhof was born. Keukenhof welcomes spring with enchanting early blooms, both indoors and outdoors. Crocuses in white and purple, early daffodils, and early tulips adorn the park with their bright colors. But visitors can also enjoy overwhelming flower shows in the pavilions.

Whether you're exploring the colorful beds in the park or immersing yourself in the creative indoor displays, Keukenhof offers an unforgettable experience for garden lovers and nature enthusiasts. Let yourself be enchanted by the early spring at Keukenhof."
