22 March-20 May 2007. The Keukenhof gardens in Lisse open for their world-famous annual flower exhibition during the bulb-flowering season. Created in 1949 by a former local mayor in association with local bulb growers and exporters, and attracting around 700,000 visitors each year, the 32-hectare gardens are planted with six million tulips, narcissus, hyacinths and other bulb flowers, as well as flowering shrubs and trees. Keukenhof also offers a large playground for children, plus an animal paddock, a maze and a giant chess board. Other activities include a Bollebozen trail through the park with ten educational assignments to complete. Keukenhof is situated between Amsterdam and the Hague, behind the coastal dunes that run down from Haarlem to Leiden. Admission
