World’s biggest tulip garden marks 75th edition

The world’s biggest tulip garden opened to the public on Thursday for its 75th edition, with hundreds of thousands of people expected to enjoy a bewildering array of seven million bulbs in the western Dutch city of Lisse.

Keukenhof park, southwest of Amsterdam in the heart of “bulb country”, contains millions of tulips of every colour as well as other flowers across 32 hectares (80 acres).

The park is a popular tourist attraction – 1.4 million visited last year – that claims to be one of the most photographed spots in the world.

“This is my first time here and I’m so excited to witness the 75th anniversary,” said Rocelle Brewer, 41.

She had bought a flowing pink dress embroidered with flowers specifically for the occasion.
