Tulip Garden

Keukenhof is situated on a 15th century hunting area. It was also a source of herbs for Jacqueline, Countess of Hainaut's castle, which is the source of the name Kuekenhof. After Jacqueline, the land was owned by merchents. Eventually, the Baron and Baroness Van Pallandt had the Zochers, who also worked on the Vondelpark, design the grounds around the castle.
