We had researched this on google and were looking forward to seeing it. We double checked on the website to make sure it would be open on Easter Sunday, it said it was.However when we arrived the kiosk was closed with no notice on when it would open. we were able to walk around the gardens, but we really wanted...

This estate opposite the famous flowershow is a gem in its own right. The former owner, earl Van Lynden, donated this property to a foundation Landgoed The Keukenhof, in 2006. The house and the surrounding park is completely restored and very interesting to visit. The park is open to the public and a tour can be organized in advance. No... More

Worth the drive to see. Visited in April. So many flowers. So many exhibits to see. Orchids house was amazing. Spent 1 hour just looking at Orchids. Best time to visit.

Beautiful little caste, surrounded by gardens. We visited outside of the season for Keukenhof gardens, on a beautiful sunny day in mid October. We didn't know what to expect, but we decided to give it a try and at least go for a coffee in the café nearby. We were really surprised by how pretty the castle is. It's actually... More

Take some time to walk and enjoy the entire garden. I was traveling for work. So I missed the tulip season by a few weeks. But this garden made up for it! There are many sculptures throughout the property.

wait a quite a while but so worth it. we are enjoying, loving it...so many colours, so many rare tulips we never seen before.I suggest that you go early , so you don't have to wait to long to go in . It's also possible to buy your ticket online,easier.Once you go there, you will always want to go back.

Waited 45mins in line for the Keukenhof shuttle bus to take us to to park from the airport, so I suggest that you go really early. Park was massive and huge with large crowds. So if you hate crowds stay away from this place, otherwise it was a gorgeous park with hundreds of different types of tulips.

The castle is surrounded by a fantastic park. If you visit it in May or April you will see lots of tulips! All colors! Fascinating and breathtaking

We celebrated here our anniversary. It was the time of the opening of the Keukenhof. An excellent place to invite Dutch and guests from all over the world. A great succes.

Do not believe the advertising bumf; my advice is to stay well clear. We travelled from UK to Keukenhof specifically for this Christmas market. There were about three dozen stalls including an English Pie stall and one selling animal skins. There was absolutely no Christmas spirit and it was poorly attended. It took all of 45 minutes to walk around... More
