Amsterdam, 10 February 2022 - Today Tiqets and Keukenhof, the world's most famous tulip garden, announced the launch of "Feast in the Flowers", an exclusive, one-night-only floral inspired dinner, courtesy of Michelin-starred restaurant Bolenius, in the Keukenhof gardens. This exclusive event on Thursday 14 April will be open to just a few lucky contest winners, who will receive transport to and accommodation in Holland, as well as the dinner invite.
The Feast in the Flowers event will include an exclusive after-hours tour of the world’s most beautiful spring garden and a 6-course, floral-themed dinner made by Luc Kusters, head chef at Bolenius, Amsterdam's only restaurant with both a Red Michelin Star and a Green Michelin Star. Attendees to the event will be guided around the gardens by a Keukenhof expert before enjoying their luxurious dinner amongst the tulips.
We can’t wait to welcome visitors again in the spring and we are always looking for great collaborations. Presenting our park to the public with this unique experience is of course extra special. This way, we hope to inspire even more people to travel to Holland and discover the beautiful flowers and cultures of our country.Tom Scheuder, Commercial Manager at Keukenhof
