5 Activities and Features of Keukenhof Garden

The small town of Lisse, south of Amsterdam and Haarlem, is home to the Keukenhof tulip garden, attracting hundreds of thousands of visitors from the world over each year.

Castle Keukenhof

Built in 1642, the castle is by far the most prominent building in the village. Unlike the gardens, it's available to visit all year round. Definitely worth a stop!

Tulpomania Exhibition

The Juliana Pavilion houses this exhibition that tells of the rise of the tulip in the Netherlands. From the Golden Age to the present, discover its economic and cultural impact!

Bicycle Tour

Really, it doesn't get more Dutch than this... riding a bike through endless fields of tulips. It's the essential way to experience Keukenhof!

Pancake Restaurant

The Dutch word for pancakes is "pannenkoeken," a staple of local cuisine. Make it a quintessentially Dutch day and stop by for an afternoon snack at the restaurant!

Buy Tulips

If photos aren't enough, you can also buy colorful bulbs from the local shop. Make sure you check customs regulations of your destination or home country first, though.

What people are saying about Keukenhof

Excellent day out where you can embrace all that is Dutch culture!

This is a whole day trip, and the added great weather made it better! Beautiful flowers, friendly and helpful guides. I felt the time we had at each attraction was perfect as you also get time to explore the locations yourself as well as have a guided tour. It was good to explore the location outside of Amsterdam!

Awesome experience....just loved the abundant colors of the flowers!

You will love this tour. The keukenhof with the abundance of flowers will blow you away. Loved the tour of the little village where the Windmills and cheese tasting were just so awesome. Cannot beat this deal! The winding down was the trip back and the finally of the lookout from the A'dam building...

We’ve enjoyed it very well. Very nice Team!

The meetingpoint: “Paulus Potterstraat 2, 1071 CZ Amsterdam, Netherlands. Meet at the bus stop in front of Coster Diamonds located at the Museum Square.” Address is correct. Actually it’s direct in front of the Coster diamonds, not “at the bus stop” in front of Coster Diamond.

It was a wonderful and organized excursion

Our guide Yvette was so lovely and gave us informative commentary along the way to the bulb farm and Keukenhof.

Transport wait horrendous, gardens lovely

We got to the transport pick up at 10 am and we're told to go to the other side to check in, then waited nearly an hour outside in a really windy and cold queue. Were given a seat on bus and finally left at 11.20. Journey was fine and the gardens were beautiful, highly recommend a visit, but transport organisation was chaotic.
