Ona beautiful sunny day in spring Keukenhof is a totally stunning sight. In the expansive gardens covering some 32 hectares there are stunning vistas everywhere you look. Small copses of trees with every colour of the rainbow represented in strategically placed beds of tulips. Also dotted around the gardens are seven exhibition centres devoted to other types of flowers. The Orchid exhibition was really something to see for example.,We visited keukenhof on Easter Tuesday. We took the half day tour that left Amsterdam at 8.30 am, This was in the end a brilliant choice as by leter in the morning the crowds were very dense. We walked aroun d the gardens in a clockwise direction - .i.e. we turned left inside the front gate, while nearly everyone else turned right. This also was a brilliant choice as we were largely undisturbed as we walked around taking in the breathtaking views without the press of people. We spent over three hours walking around and this was barely enough time to see things. The view over the commercial tulip farms was quite breathtaking from the windmill at the top of the garden. The tulips were essentially at their peak.
The gardens are open from about mid March until mid to late May each year. This is a must see on a trip to Amsterdam
