We all know that many tourists come to Holland for the tulips, but this year they really did all come for the tulips. A record 1.5 million visitors went to the Keukenhof this year – their best ever.

People from all over the world visit Keukenhof and the Netherlands
People from all over the world come to visit the Netherlands to enjoy tulip season and sometimes to even explore other parts of the country. According to De Telegraaf, Dutch people made up 20% of all visitors, closely followed by Germans at 15% and American’s at 10%. Surprisingly the number of Chinese visitors fell.
If this growth continues then the Netherlands definitely has to take more steps to better manage the chaos and minimise the effect on local residents.
