Owner description: Keukenhof? That’s the place to see spring blossom. The park is unique, world famous, and has been one of the most popular destinations in the Netherlands for sixty years now. Haven’t seen Keukenhof? Then you haven’t seen the Netherlands. You won’t find such an abundance of colours and fragrances anywhere else. More than seven million flowers form a glorious decor for the most beautiful photos. Come to Keukenhof and enjoy the ultimate spring feeling, the wonderful works of art, the surprising insipration gardens and the many flower shows.

A photographer's paradise, Keukenhof didn't disappoint in spite of the cold weather. With a variety of stunning displays of Spring flowers there were plenty of places to stop for a coffee & something to eat. We also enjoyed the indoor pavilions where we saw creative displays of flowers and enjoyed watching a fashion show with models showing unusual hats. In one area, ladies of all ages, including some children, were enjoying decorating hats with a variety of embellishments and flowers.

The best time to visit will probably be from 20 April - 22 May. The flower parade takes place on the 21st April in the afternoon. An express bus is available from Amsterdam, Utrecht, Den Bosch & Eindhoven. Check the internet for times of events on the programme and all other information you may require.

The colors, the landscaping, the smells, the sculpture, the variety, the food - it is absolutely spectacular! But get there EARLY as you can. Although very large and even beautiful and easy to get around when crowded, the experience of being there without crowds makes it worth it to get up and out early.
Do NOT forget your camera - or leave it home and then you are free to simply drink it all in.
I live nearby but can visit every year - there is nothing like it!

It was just amazing, incredible, I ve never seen something like that. The gardens are magnificent, like walking in a palace. I lack of words to express how beautiful everything is in there. There is no picture that can describe the colorful sensations, feelings and smelling of Keukenfof gardens. Congrats and many thanks for all the peole who work there. One can see there is a lot of work and love in each piece of garden, carefully designed and taken care of. And the fields nearby are awsome! Large natural bright colorful carpets covering the earth!! Breathtaking!

We had a wonderful time at the Keukenhof. Lawns are beautifully manicured, flower beds are exquisitely colorful. The variety of tulips and other bulbs is breathtaking. I would certainly go again!

Excellent worth a visit. Easter display outside mainly hyacinths and early tulips plus daffs. Inside pavilions great displays of mid season tulips and orchids were inspiring. First rate hoticultural standards well done.
