It was not until the 20th century that the place was transformed into a flower garden, where the most outstanding flower bulb growers presented the most interesting plant varieties. Currently, Keukenhof is one of the largest gardens of this type in the world . Between the walking paths you can admire whole carpets of colorful tulips, daffodils, hyacinths, crocuses, narcissus and lilies.
