Keukenhof, Lisse

(4.6/5 based on 6,500+ reviews on the web)
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. Add Keukenhof and other attractions to your Lisse trip itinerary using our Lisse itinerary builder.

  • I counted the days to be in this beautiful garden. Everything about him is stunning. I've been in April 2016 and intend to go back if everything works right now in April 2017. It is a paradise of flowers. The mills appear to have something of fairy tale.

  • WOW WOW WOW Waited 40 years to come and it was so worth it. Have hundreds of photos, it was so impressive and gorgeous, I wish I could visit every year. We had a wonderful day, and even in the last week the wonderful staff were still planting so that it looks good for everyone.A lovely atmosphere, so many people from around the World enjoying the peace and beauty
  • The Keukenhof is open only from the end of March to the beginning of May. It is one of the most important tourist attractions in the Netherlands. Tourists from all over world love to visit this wonderful garden which has different tulips and diversity of flowers. From Leiden direct bus takes you straight to this fabulous garden. The landscaping of the garden makes it a trip worth.
  • Absolutely beautiful place to visit. Recommend that you check the weather and on the website when most tulips bloom. also come early in the morning so you don't get there with the larger crowds. you will for sure enjoy the many different flowers and arrangements is truly amazing.
  • The tulips were definitely worth waiting months for! There were probably more than a hundred types of flowers showcased in the garden — everything was so beautiful. However it was a bit crowded and I unfortunately didn't know beforehand that on certain dates they do a flower parade around the area, it looked like so much fun in the media.
  • Beatiful park for flowers and plants lovers! Very nice blossom of several kinds of tulips, jacintus and muscari. Very crouwded and long lines at the entrance. A place to see once in your life.
