No Photoshop here. Promise! If you don't believe, you just have to visit Keukenhof and see it by yourself.

Keukenhof is the world's largest flower garden, located near Lisse, in The Netherlands. Over seven million (seven million!!) of flowers in more than 100 different varieties of tulips are planted on its 32 hectares. The tulips fields have such a vivid and incredible colours than will blow your mind out.

This garden is open annually only a few weeks (from the last week in March to mid May), but this short period is more than enough to get the impressive amount of 800,000 visitors. The best moment to visit the garden depends on the weather, but usually is in mid April.

I highly recommend visiting Keukenhof to those who visit Amsterdam in Spring and have a spare day to spend. The best way to get there from Amsterdam is buying a Combi-ticket. This is a return bus ticket to Keukenhof and an entrance ticket to the garden. The bus goes directly to Keukenhof and you can enter the garden right away, so you will not have problems with train schedules, bus stops, parking problems or even ticket queues. You can get this combi ticket in Amsterdam Central tourist information center or on the Keukenhof web site
