Keukenhof, Lisse

4.6
#1 of 219 in Parks in The Netherlands
Garden Nature / Park
Visit Keukenhof, the world's second-largest flower garden. With more than 7 million flowers in bloom every year from March to May, this is also called the Garden of Europe. The park was founded in 1949 on 15th-century hunting grounds that were developed to display Dutch and European hybrids. Discover 32 hectares (79 acres) of colorful, blossom-filled parkland. Walk through Castle Keukenhof which was built in 1641, view the traditional English landscape garden, and stroll along the pathways of the exotic Japanese garden. Because the Netherlands is known for tulips, you may expect to see many of them here, however, the only nearby tulip fields lie beyond the garden's borders and are privately owned.

  • Naturally it's better to go earlier when there are even more tulips and the fields are full of them .. but we could only come the last day and we were very concerned it wasn't going to be worth the vi...  more »

  • This is a great place to go in the spring and especially if the sun is out. Tulip and flower gardens are very impressive, creative, and well maintained. You can easily spend hours without even realizing it. The bus from the airport is very convenient and you can get park tickets there as well. You should look into it when you arrive in Amsterdam at the airport. It is worth planning into your schedule for a unique Dutch experience.
  • This place was so beautiful. I went a few weeks before the peak blooming season. I was able to catch the bus from the Amsterdam Airport and enjoy the scenery along the way. Even if I didn't stop and rest anywhere, this place took the better part of five hours to walk through. There's so much to see and enjoy! The plants aren't you just beautiful but the landscaping is also thoughtful and beautiful for the off seasons. Additionally they make a point to plant not just tulips but other plant varieties so they bloom at different times. Would definitely go back!
  • If you are buying the ticket to the Gardens, expecting to see long stretch of beautiful Tulips, PLEASE DO NOT BUY THEM.. the long stretch of tulips are outside the garden, in the farm and is FREE for visitors.. I felt the tulips farm was much more beautiful than the gardens.. But the gardens have varieties of tulips, and cool photo-worthy places. The beautiful lake (or pond) inside makes the garden even more beautiful
  • The garden is huge and beautiful but the best part was renting bikes and riding through the fields where they harvest the tulips. Just rows and rows of beautiful bright colors as far as the eye can see! It also allows you to see some of Amsterdam outside of the city which is full of lush green forests and charming picture perfect houses
  • Fantastic landscaped gardens covering 32 hectares. Not just Tulips - although that is most definitely the main focus - the gardens range from Japanese style woodland plots and modern and art influenced installations, to classic formal and park garden styles with a huge decorative lake in the middle. A great visit, but best to turn up early even late into the season.
