The Keukenhof flower garden in Holland, with its seven million spring flowers, bout with some justification that it is the & # 39; most beautiful spring garden in & # 39; is a world & # 39;
But for the first time in its 71-year history, it is closed, as a result of the locking of the coronavirus.
However, the beautiful blooms can still be seen in all their multi-colored glory – pure – thanks to Dutch photographer Albert Dros, which had exclusive access to the site in Lisse, also called the Garden of Europe.
The 34-year-old has produced a stress-busting set of images from this year’s breathtaking displays.
And the garden itself has produced a superb 360-degree interactive video tour of its flower beds, which includes tulips, lilies, roses, daffodils and more.
Talking about taking & # 39; s snaps, Albert told MailOnline Travel: & # 39; It was really surreal. I sometimes walked around without taking pictures. Hearing the sound of birds and the water was so relaxing. And the smell was just great. It was total zen. Declining people really gave this experience the next level. & # 39; Scroll down to immerse yourself in & # 39; beauty of & # 39; e flowers …

Planting at the garden begins in early October and is usually completed until December. The flowers begin to bloom in spring

Albert says the quality of flower displays really shows the passion that the Keukenhof team has for gardening
Keukenhof dates from the 15th century. It was then used as a fruit and vegetable garden for the kitchen of Kasteel Teylingen
The theme of this year's display at Keukenhof is & # 39; A World of Colors & # 39; perfectly displayed here
Keukenhof Castle was built in 1641 and the estate grew and covered an area of more than 200 hectares. Landscape architects Jan David Zocher and his son Louis Paul Zocher, who also designed the Amsterdam Vondelpark, designed the castle gardens in 1857. This park, in English landscape style, is still the basis of the website Keukenhof
Albert says that upon entering Keukenhof, he & # 39; was just baffled about everything being provided and all the details were there & # 39;
