Keukenhof, Lisse

Must see · Garden · 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. Put Keukenhof on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Lisse journey builder site.

  • Beautiful park with various flowers and not just tulips even though they were definitely the main type on display. Unfortunately when we visited, the tulip fields which could be viewed from the park.....  more »
  • I know this isn't a park but anyways, this place is magical. I would recommend going by the beginning of May since the tulips are full flowers. The problem is that there are lots of people and maybe.....  more »

  • One of the most beautiful flower gardens in the world. It is located in a vast area between Amsterdam and Rotterdam. Tulips bloom most spectacular. A true outdoor recreation for all ages. Well-kept garden, promenades, programs. You can also buy special tulip bulbs typical of the garden! You must see it at least once in your life!
  • Very beautiful garden with tulips! It's an absolute pleasure to walk there! Flowers are very big and beautiful, the combination of colours is very good. The garden can be visited only a couple of months in March - April. I would recommend to go in the middle of the opening time
  • Beautiful way to spend a day! Food and drink a little on the steep side but no more than normal, for these type of events. The rainbow coloured fields are a spectacle on their own and the various gardens, with their sweeping colours and scents, really are stunning!!
  • An absolute eyeful. The colors were spectacular. We were there during the peak of tulip season and we had crowds but - it was worth it. We hired a local guide and she was wonderful getting us to everything we needed to see and saving us time. Put this ob your must see list.
  • These gardens were really beautiful. We went in early April and it was very crowded but definitely worth the trip! The gardens are HUGE so it took us a while to see everything but there were so many flowers in bloom and it was such a nice place to walk around. The flower beds are in sections so you follow a path with the flowers on either side. The famous giant field of flowers that comes up most often when you look up photos was not in bloom by the smaller patches still looked gorgeous.
