March 20, 2019 – May 18, 2019 all-day
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 colours. The Netherlands is famous for its bulb fields and the many flowers cultivated there. Bright colours, hippies, peace & music. Flower Power has that early 1970s vibe. A great theme for celebrating the 70th Keukenhof!
The Flower Power flower mosaic consists of some 50,000 bulbs planted in two layers. It is flowering profusely and guarantees great photographs and selfies. Furthermore, the flower shows at the Oranje Nassau Paviljoen are entirely dedicated to flower power as are the inspirational gardens.
Pieter Elbers, CEO of KLM, fulfilled an important role during the opening ceremony. The musical accompaniment was entirely aligned with the flower power theme. Patricia van Haastrecht and Hans van Heiningen sang ‘Aquarius’ and Karin Bloemen sang a medley as a taster of the Keukenhof Spring Concert. The event concluded with a dance recital by Total Move.
Keukenhof is open to the general public from thursday. By the time it closes on 19 May 2019, the flower exhibition will have received over 1 million visitors from across the globe.
