What is the Keukenhof theme for 2023?

Each year, the flower park has a special theme to which the designs of the gardens and the flower shows in the pavilions are inspired. The park also features a giant flower mosaic in that year’s theme every season. In 2023, Keukenhof has no overarching theme. The flower shows will each have their own theme.
