Hollands produce around 80 percent of the world’s tulip – most of which are grown below sea level – Keukenhof is a real showpiece and it can be easily explored on foot or on the Dutch-style bicycles which can be rented in the gardens. Boat trips around the bulb fields are also available while the gardens themselves are open between 8am and 5.30pm daily.

Flowers and Holland are inextricably linked. Especially in the provinces of North Holland and Flevoland, tulip bulb fields, long narrow ditches and green strips of grass add a colorful palette to Holland’s countryside landscape. Flowers are not only one of Holland’s main export products; they also attract many tourists from all over the world, year after year.

The flower originates from Turkey or Iran, where it was already very popular amongst the sultans. In the 17th Century, tulip mania reached Holland and it is still an important export product.
Flowers are one of the main export products of Holland. The main importing countries are Germany, the United Kingdom, France, Italy and Russia. In order to continue the flower trade all year through, Holland also imports many flowers from, in particular, Africa and Israel, making the country the main importer of the European Union.

Most of the flowers are grown in greenhouses. The Westland area and the city of Aalsmeer are the epicentre of the worldwide flower trade. Holland has approximately 10,000 hectares of glasshouses. One third of this is dedicated to cut flowers.

Employees of the flower garden 'Keukenhof' are working for the opening season.
