The coming spring will see approximately 7 million bulbs planted in the park.
The significance of Keukenhof for tourism in the Netherlands is exceptionally large. Every year 1 million visitors come to Keukenhof from over 100 countries. The bulb sector in general and the tulips and Keukenhof in particular, have become the face of the tourist image of the Netherlands.
