Owner description: Keukenhof? That’s the place to see spring blossom. The park is unique, world famous, and has been one of the most popular destinations in the Netherlands for sixty years now. Haven’t seen Keukenhof? Then you haven’t seen the Netherlands. You won’t find such an abundance of colours and fragrances anywhere else. More than seven million flowers form a glorious decor for the most beautiful photos. Come to Keukenhof and enjoy the ultimate spring feeling, the wonderful works of art, the surprising insipration gardens and the many flower shows.

The best time to visit is in spring, April. Expect to be amazed by the vast fields of tulips of every colour and shapes. The facilities, restaurants, toilets are good. It is usually quite busy, but large enough to be able to find a few quiet spots...to spend some alone time with the tulips. Good access by train, bus.

If you are in The Netherlands between late March and early May, this should be on your list of must see places. Unbelievable displays of exquisite tulips. Be prepared for large crowds most of which are ignoring signs to keep off grass and out of flowers.

We decided against an organized tour from Amsterdam that had a planned out schedule and instead chose to arrange transportation on our own so we could view the gardens at our leisure. I would recommend doing it this way if you even think that a couple of hours might not be enough. We probably spent 5 hours at the gardens including a half hour to eat lunch.

We chose to go with the combi-ticket offered on the garden website that included admission to the park and bus fair from Schiphol Airport. We were able to take a train to the airport from Amsterdam Centraal and hop right on the bus to the gardens. It was very easy and there was plenty of signage telling you where to go to find the bus.

We visited near the end of April 2012

If you like flowers, then this park is something you might like. It's cultivated in a sense that you won't find natural wild flowerbeds, but it's very well kept and very colourfull to enjoy.

Allow a full day here as there is so much to see. Midweek the crowds were not too bad and there are plenty of facilities. The flowers are simply stunning, everywhere you look! We took loads of photos and I love looking back at them. Well worth the trip.

Very beautiful garden with many tulips and many kind of flowers. Get a bus including the entrance fee for Euro20 from Amsterdam Schiphol Airport to Keukenhof Garden. However, the garden is only open during Spring. Indeed worth visiting.
