On Thursday 4 October 2018, Keukenhof’s gardeners planted the first bulbs for the flower mosaic Flower Power. This marked the start of the planting of seven million bulbs for coming year’s display.
Flower Power is Keukenhof’s 2019 theme. Flowers inspire. At Keukenhof flowers connect people from across the globe who come together to enjoy the tulips, smells and colors. The Netherlands is famous for its bulb fields and the many flowers cultivated there. Bright colors, hippies, peace & music. Flower Power has that early 1970s vibe. A great theme for celebrating the 70th Keukenhof. Flower Power, the strength of flowers!
In 2019, Keukenhof will have another, wonderful 50,000 tulip mosaic. The latter has been planted in two layers to extend its flowering during the spring. The mosaic is 250 m2 in size. 50,000 bulbs were used: tulips, grape hyacinths and crocuses.
Keukenhof is of exceptional importance to Dutch tourism. Annually, over 1 million visitors, from over 100 countries are received. 75% of these are from abroad. The principal countries of origin are: Germany, the United States, France, the United Kingdom and China. There has, in recent years, been a marked increase in the number of visitors from the United States, China, India and South-East Asia. The bulb sector in general, and tulips and Keukenhof in particular are determinative for the Netherlands’ touristic image.
