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.

We go to the Keukenhof every year and every year it is like seeing it for the fist time, every walk is a vista, the colours and flowerbed designs take your breath away. There are pretty little hidden away walks like the swinging bridge, a lovely place to take a romantic photograph and the beautiful lake with the big wooden stepping stones against a backdrop of fountains and azaleas. Although the gardens are only open for two months they vary very much depending on when you go, there are also different exhibitions in the the various houses, lilies, orchids etc. the food and beverages are reasonably priced and the barrel organ creates a happy atmosphere. There are also coaches from Leiden and Schiphol with an all inclusive price, boat trips and flower field tours, there is plenty to do for all the family. It is best to buy tickets online to save queuing and wheelchairs are available free of charge and scoot mobiles for €10 per day. The Keukenhof is an absolute must, it must be the most beautiful garden in the world.

Don´t miss it! it´s totally worth the trip!
Beautiful place, colorful and pretty! Much more than flowers!!!
It´s a short trip from Amsterdam (30 min) and a truly inspiring place!
After all the flower camps, go to the orchide barn, the mill and labirinth!
Very nice, a dreamy place.

There aren't words to describe Keukenhof. It's absolutely overwhelming. Of all the things I've seen in this world, this is among the most beautiful and memorable of them all. We visited as part of Tauck's trip of Holland and Belgium in Spring and they had the trip timed perfectly.

Be sure you wear comfortable walking shoes because there is a lot of ground to cover. Also, you might want to bring binoculars, or if you're a photographer, bring a wide angle lens. You will see tulips and blooming bulbs farther than your eyes can see and more than your brain can comprehend. They also had an interesting array of blooms inside, so be sure you don't miss that display.

What you will see at Keukenhof is so unique that once you've been there you will recognize it in an instant when you see a photo or video from there. I can't wait to go back!!!

Wonderful, out of this world. Really cannot describe this spectacle. If you love colour and flowers this is a must. Every year is different. We never get fed up with it. During the season you will never be disappointed as the gardeners keep replacing as the flowers fade. The layout is spectacular. The pathways give easy walking and it is easy for wheelchairs to get to every area. This is one of the most beautiful spring parks we have ever visited. We like to go over to Keukenhof every two or three years. Best to allow a whole day.

We strongly recommend this either for a weekend or even longer holiday taking in Amsterdam, Bruges or various other places. Great for that Spring break.
