Flower Show at Keukenhof’s Oranje Nassau Pavilion

Keukenhof is not just an outdoor garden. There are several pavilions in different areas of the garden that showcase different flower shows. And I tell you, they are not to be missed.

My favorite flower show is the one in the Oranje Nassau Pavilion. This section of the park is the last area we visited and only because I wanted to check out the flower mosaic depicting Amsterdam’s canals which happens to be located beside the Oranje Nassau Pavilion. Unfortunately, the tulips making up the flower mosaic weren’t in bloom yet. It was a blessing in disguise though as Sharlene and I decided to just check out the flower show in Oranje Nassau Pavilion instead.

Of all the flower shows in the other pavilions, this is the one I enjoyed the most. The props are very Dutch. I enjoyed taking pictures of the exhibits and being photographed with them as well.

Take a peek. Don’t you just agree with me?
