The gardens are spectacular and very well maintained a must see if traveling to amsterdam during prime blooming season. The place was PACKED , it did not take away from the beauty but it can be a bit overwhelming moving around with so many people. Give yourself about 2-3 hrs to see it all and try to go later in...

I was in paradise!! The smell of the flowers was beautiful and everywhere was a forest of spring bulbs. This place is a gardener's delight. We bought a combi ticket which enabled us to travel on an express bus from Schiphol dropping us right outside the entrance. With these tickets we also bypassed the queue which saved time. The gardens... More

Flowers, flowers, flowers everywhere! But there is more than just flowers. The fairground-style organ at the entrance helps set a carnival atmosphere. Try the soft serve (frambois) ice cream, if blood sugars get a little low from all the walking. Check out the exhibits in the various buildings, too. Keukenhof truly is better than the photos; you've got to see... More

Whether you are a gardener or not this is a much visit place. You cannot help but be bowled over by the sheer beauty of the place and the riot of colour is a feast for the eyes. The scents from the plants is also delicious. Initially we spent a full day there 8.45 till 19.15 having had a good... More

We visited the attraction April 19th and it was excellent as the tulips were in full bloom. We went early, arriving at 8:30 AM and were glad we did because crowds of people arrived by 10:30. The grounds were impecably maintained, the numerous flowers and designs were very creative and the weather cooperated nicely. The colors were so vivid and... More

Wow! I have never seen so many tulips in my life, it was truly amazing. You think you've seen the best and then turn a corner and there are better plants and colours. The orchid exhibition was also fantastic, I had always thought orchids were 2 colours but there were flowers with just a single colour - brilliant! It's the... More

I can only endorse the comments of other visitors. The gardens themselves are breathtaking and, although it gets crowded by mid-day, there's still enough space to be able to see everything. The catering isn't overpriced and Dutch children are well behaved and respectful. The Dutch staff all speak English fluently and they couldn't have been more helpful. I was a... More

Visited from Amsterdam. We got the train from Amsterdam Central to Schipol airport where we purchased a coach ticket plus entry to the gardens from a book stall near the entrance to area 4 where the coach departed from. The queue for the coach was long but moved very quickly when the buses arrived which seemed to be at 9.45... More

This is a gardening mecca! Bulbs of every kind and color. Some colors are so brilliant they look fake (and I mean that as a compliment). Go as early as possible as the crowds are there for bus from airport and lines for tickets and walkways in the gardens. And the orchids and bulb buildings are amazing too. Here's how... More
