Keukenhof’s name was introduced by Countess Jacoba van Beieren in the 15th century. Her land was used for hunting and growing herbs for the castle’s kitchen, Keukenhof, or Kitchen Garden.
In 1857, Jan David Zocher and his son Louis Paul Zocher, who also designed Vondelpark in Amsterdam, re-designed the area into an English style garden.
