My niece and nephew are here with us for holidays. We tried this today with my niece, who is on vacation to Denmark, as part of the homework assigned by her school for the school holidays.

Blooming Tulip Fields in Denmark

Tulip field in Bøgehave in Lolland Denmark (Tulipan marken i Bøgehave - Vesterborg - Lolland)

There are actually tulip fields in Denmark!!! After 17 years of being in Denmark, I didn't know about it until recently!!! The tulip fields are low key in Denmark. Not many people know about them. Thus, it's a well-kept secret in Denmark.

Because of the colder climate, the Danish tulips bloom a little later than in Holland, more towards the end of April and beginning of May. This year, we went there on 29th April to feast our eyes, and we were not disappointed at all.

For a moment,  we felt like we were in the Netherlands... it was amazing and simply mesmerizing!!!

The owner of the tulip field was very kind. I called him more than once to follow the tulips progress as I didn't want to miss it and he gladly obliged with my questions. He even texted me an sms on the address of the field.

And Baby FECS had a sensory Montessori experience at the tulip field. She went about smelling each and every tulip... well almost :-)

Here are the details:

Address:
Vedbyvej 15, 4953 Vesterborg

Note: I heard that the actual location shift a little every year, so it is good to call in advance to get the more accurate location and to find out when it will be a good time to see these tulips.

There is another tulip field in Juland. Check it out here:
