Just Some Enchanting Photos Of The Most Beautiful Tulip Gardens In The World

In honour of the spring bank holiday, here are some gorgeous shots of the Keukenhof Flower Exhibit.

At the beginning of spring, nature seems to come out of an infinite sleep, and in one flower garden in particular, nature puts on one hell of a show. The Keukenhof Flower Exhibit in the Netherlands – which you can explore virtually here, FYI – is the largest flower exhibition park in the world, with over 7 million tulip bulbs each year. The 32-hectare garden also hosts lilies, daffodils, and hyacinths, as well as several hundred perennials such as roses, hellebores, azaleas, and orchids, and the results are truly spectacular.

Of course, this tends to attract visitors in their droves, but with the coronavirus pandemic putting the skids on 2020’s exhibition, the park lies empty for the first time in 71 years. However, our loss is landscape photographer Albert Dros‘ gain, as he unsheathed his camera to immortalise the silent gardens, and posted the results to his Facebook page. “There was one thing that I wanted to capture at least once in my life: Keukenhof without anyone. It seemed impossible until April 2020”, Dros said, and I think you’ll agree the results are worth the wait…
