Hi Leena,

If you want a direct bus the closest bus stop is in Lisse town, still about 15 mins walk from the Hof. For most people easier is

a) Bus to Schiphol or train to Leiden

b) Direct bus to Hof entrance from there.

The bus timetable for the direct-bus option is at journeyplanner.9292.nl, for the indirect route it will also come there but not yet - probably in March.

All the best,

Hi Leena,

Yes it is possible to travel by bus from Haarlem to Keukenhof.

Bus 51 and 20 min walking (walking next to beautiful flowerfields!) or

Bus 51 wait for a couple of minutes and than bus 57 will bring you to the main entrance of the Keukenhof.

Timetables can be found 3 months in advance on http://www.9292.nl/en

Have a great time in the Keukenhof! :-)

Leena,

The route is not signposted, but it isn't very difficult to find.

Just have a look inmy Keukenhof 2012 folder on my flickr page and you will find 2 walking routes on a map. (as some photo's of this area of the last couple of years). see www.flickr.com/photos/nring23/collections/

Enjoy!

Thanks for the info. If I take Bus 51, what bus stop do I get off at to catch Bus 57 to Keukenhof? Where do I pickup Bus 51 (staying at Stayokay Hostel)? Thanks!

It's all in detail visible on the 9292 site given above including all stops. Same for Haarlem departure: Jan Gijzenpad 3 is the address, from there first city bus to Haarlem station and then bus 51.

All the best,

I hope you have been to the Keukenhof today. I was there too and it's really amazing right now. Weather was great and all flowers (tulips included) are blooming right now.
