Create an itinerary including Keukenhof
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. Put Keukenhof on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Lisse journey builder site.

  • Book your coach and entrance tickets together online and avoid the queues. Beautiful tulips and lakes. There are well designed planting schemes, a windmill and a maze. A massive variety of tulips. Hire a bike outside and cycle easily and freely around the tulip fields in the area.
  • What an amazing place ! Such beautiful flowers and areas. It was my best experience during my stay in the Netherlands. I will come back without any hesitation. Restaurants and cafe in the parc. It’s far from Amsterdam center so you have to take the train and then a bus but it’s very simple.
  • If you like flowers, nature, pretty places outdoors and color combinations, you will have a blast! First time exploring the park, and surely not the last. Even though the location is not centric, they make it easily accessible with direct bus connections from Leiden and Amsterdam South. If you are anything like me and need toilets everywhere you go, here IS FREE, as well as the lockers to store any extra bags you might have, so you can walk around weight-free. If you are in the country, definitely give it a go.
  • Visited during one of the supposedly good weekends of the season and tulips weren't really in bloom. Overally the park is very nice and there's enough to walk around, but I don't think it was really worth the trip from Amsterdam. What seems like a good idea instead is to skip the park completely and just bike around it and in the general area.
  • Not a single complaint. The place is astonishing. Very well mantained, you can really tell the gardeners are constantly taking care of the gardens and they have it in perfect shape every day. You can found tulips even when they bloom early in the year and the fields are empty. I would recommend this visit to everyone, despite their age and condition.
