A colourful quarantine at the Keukenhof
April is the perfect month to go outside and enjoy the wonders of spring. Each country has their own special way of nature waking up after winter and the Netherlands are no exception. In the Dutch countryside for example, little lambs and calves are allowed outside for the very first time, café’s open their terraces for some cold beers in the sun and people come in from the cities to enjoy the nature reserves and beaches. But there is one other thing that is distinctly Dutch and spring related: tulips. The best place to see the tulips is in North-Holland, at the Keukenhof. The Keukenhof has been a popular tourist attraction in the Netherlands for quite some time now. Being just 30 mins away from the centre of Amsterdam, the garden has attracted millions of tourists since opening its gates in 1950. However, this year the park will remain closed due to the global corona crisis. But the Keukenhof has been incredibly creative and has made it possible for people around the world to visit their gardens through modern technology. While sitting behind your computer, laptop, mobile phone or tablet, you can take a look at the gardeners and their colleagues telling you about all the beautiful tulips that are decorating the Dutch landscape. So even if you feel a little bleak this month, visit the social media channels of the Keukenhof and look at the world through some brightly coloured lenses…For more videos and photos visit the website and FB page of the Keukenhof.
