In the early days, the park was used as a graveyard, so if you visit, take the time to read the markers.
The garden is open from 8 AM until dusk. Admission is free.
The gardens were the idea of the 1949 Mayor of Lisse. He wanted to create an open-air flower exhibition to showcase Dutch bulb-growers' latest hybrids. It is now the world's largest and most photographed flower garden.
If you want to see it, the best time to go is in April. The gardens are located between the towns of Hillingom and Lisse. The exhibition runs from the end of March to May.
