Will you be visiting Holland in spring? Then be sure to visit Keukenhof, where you will experience the gorgeous views of blooming Dutch tulips and other flowers for which Holland is famous. Keukenhof is the most famous and largest flower park in the world and lies not far from Amsterdam.
Tulips from Holland are world famous. If you want to see the Dutch tulip fields in bloom, you should visit Holland in April and May. This is the same period in which the biggest flower park in the world, Keukenhof, opens its doors.
Keukenhof is a park where more than 7 million flower bulbs are planted every year. Gardens and four pavilions show a fantastic collection of: tulips, hyacinths, daffodils, orchids, roses, carnations, irises, lilies and many other flowers. You will be overwhelmed by a spectacle of colors and perfumes.
Keukenhof lies in Lisse, between Amsterdam and The Hague, in the heart of the Bollenstreek (Bulb Region), and is easy to reach via the A4 (exit Nieuw-Vennep) and the A44 (exit 3 Lisse). Follow the 'Keukenhof' signs.
Keukenhof is also well accessible by public transport. Take a look at our combi tickets that offer access to the park and use of public transportation between Amsterdam, Schiphol or Leiden and Keukenhof. From 23 March to 21 May 2017 , the park is open every day from 08:00 to 19:30. The cash register closes at 18:00.
At Keukenhof, you'd think you were adrift on a sea of flowers. Divided across various gardens and pavilions, the tulips and other flowers number in the millions. Keukenhof has a different theme each year, meaning that it is never the same. Unique in the world, this park attracts over a million visitors every year. Note that the tulips bloom only from mid-March to mid-May, meaning that the park is only open during this period.

If you want to have a really flowery day out, you should combine a visit to the Keukenhof with the Flower Parade in April.
