Keukenhof 2022: a feast of flowers in The Netherlands
Each spring, more than 7 million flowers bloom in the garden of The Netherlands’s Keukenhof. And the 73rd edition of Keukenhof will start on Thursday 24 March 2022! The flowering park remained closed in 2020 as a result of the lockdown, and in 2021 the park was only allowed to open as a test for six days. But this year we can fully enjoy all the magic again. Are you a flower and plant lover? Then it’s definitely worth taking a trip to Keukenhof!
In the past 72 years Keukenhof has grown into a worldwide concept. This year, the flower exhibition will be open from March 24 to May 15. So you have more than 7 weeks to visit this spectacle of 320,000 m2 of flowers! Keukenhof displays flowers and blooming plants not only outside, but also inside. In the Beatrix Pavilion you can enjoy Orchids and Anthuriums in a surprisingly colorful decor.
Theme: Flower Classics
Every year the flower exhibition has a theme, from which the designs of the gardens and flower shows are inspired. This year, the theme will be Flower Classics. After two years of absence, the flowering park wants to return to a classic and timeless theme. It also is a reference to art. “Flowers are classic symbols used in the arts for centuries. As is apparent in several works on view at the Mauritshuis. Replicas of a number of these will be on show at Keukenhof for visitors to admire,” says director Bart Siemerink. Keukenhof will feature replicas of several paintings from the Mauritshuis, including Johannes Vermeer’s most famous painting, Girl with Pearl Earring. The impossible bouquet, consisting of flowers that all bloom at different times of the year, will also be brought to life!
Keukenhof is open from Thursday 24 March to Sunday 15 May 2022 from 8:00 am – 7:30 pm. More information and tickets can be found on their website.
