Keukenhof is open for just two months each spring, making the annual event one of the most popular in Europe. In addition to the flower fields, the park is a kid-friendly venue home to canals, restaurants, a picnic area, maze, playground, and windmill, providing plenty to see and do as you walk around. Consider booking a tour or ticket with skip-the-line access to ensure you get to experience the flowers in bloom, and plan to spend a half or full day exploring the park. Combo tours are available if you'd like to check out additional locations in Holland such as Marken, Volendam fishing villages, or Zaanse Schans.
Very good trip. Maybe not the best...
Very good trip. Maybe not the best time for us to visit as was a cold and a rainy day. They do have indoors pavilions where they have so many amazing displays, so you can stay dry, away of the rain and take your time exploring . Would be really worth it to visit maybe at the end of April , beginning of May. We had a good time , enjoying the beautiful gardens despite the rain. I think it worth checking the weather before you book the tickets so you can enjoy the beauty of the place.
