"Holland as a whole!" Keukenhof Tip by seamandrew

Keukenhof, Amsterdam: 6 reviews and 6 photos

  Beautiful Orchids at the Floriade
by seamandrew

Favorite thing: Elisabeth and I only took one excursion outside of Amsterdam and that was to the Floriade. This wonderous horticultural extravaganza was just amazing. Flowers from all over the world were on display and breathaking gardens where created throughout the grounds. This place was so big we didn't make it to all the attractions within the park. For anyone going to the Netherlands in the near future. Make an effort to go to the Floriade while it lasts. This event only occurs every 10 years. Granted, I didn't get to see the Windmills of the Netherlands but they will be there next year, the Floriade will not!

Our trip of the Netherlands was concentrated on Amsterdam and Hoofddorp which is the town nearest the Floriade. Enjoy my pages.
