Keukenhof Tulip Gardens are spread over 32 hectares and 800 types of tulips were on show. Tulips bloomed everywhere. Keukenhof is easily accessible from Amsterdam and Schiphol Airport.
Best Time to Visit
Keukenhof is open from mid March to mid May each year. The best time to see the spring flowers will depend on the weather. When the weather is cold, tulips grow much slower than when it is warm.
As the gardens are laid out over a large area, a fair amount of walking will be necessary. At Keukenhof, there are five pavilions with stylish and colourful restaurants.
Weather in Keukenhof Tulip Gardens
Weather in Holland is not predictable and it can rain several times a day. A waterproof jacket s a must. You will also need to protect your camera from water damage.
The tulips were in many different colours: yellow, blue, white, orange, pink, red and even black. Red can be a difficult colour to photograph.
