Keukenhof, Lisse

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 .

  • Who's in Amsterdam during the opening months of the Park can not fail to visit Keukenhof! We are unfortunately happened the first few days of operation (April) and many flowers were still closed, but it's still worthwhile: colorful and cheerful ... A wonderful experience!

  • Located about an hour from Amsterdam, but absolutely deserves to be seen! It's easy to get a bus leaving from the main station. Thousands of colorful flowers will brighten up the immense Park, which has built a windmill, several bars and restaurants (though they are all part of the same chain and have the same dishes). It opened 2 months a year from March to may, I went during the first few days of operation and many flowers were still closed unfortunately, but it was still lovely!

  • I have always wanted to go and we went by car in April. It was cold and wet a lot of the time or we would have stayed longer. Beautiful displays, I truly did not realise how many species of tulips the...  more »

  • I like this place a lot. There is a farm for children where they can interact with the animals and be in contact with nature. They also have a nice Cafe where you can eat something. The castle is beautiful and the gardens are wonderful. The plus...Free entrance.
  • Kasteel keukenhof is located nearby Keukenhof world garden. You need to walk out of the car park and turn right. A 10-15 min. walk will bring you there. There is a pretty ancient castle and sculptures for photographers. If you visit Keukenhof and have spare time, go to visit it. It will take you 1 hour to see everything.
  • A very nice place for family outing with a very nice farm for children.
  • Nice, historical castle. Inside is unchanged and a lot of the surrounding area has been kept the same as well. It's like you stepped back in time!
  • A very nice area with a café, museum, place for children (and adults) to spend time with different animals and the Kasteel all located in a very pleasant scuplture park! Entrance is free as well!
