International Flower Exhibition
The Keukenhof Gardens attract over a million visitors each year. The visitors come from over 100 countries. 20% comes from the Netherlands, 40% of the visit from our neighboring countries. In 2019 the Keukenhof received 120,000 Americans and 90,000 Chinese. Also from eastern Europe, Russia and South America, the number of visitors grew.
Not all the flowers at Keukenhof are outside: there are several pavilions that are packed with flowering bulbs, cut flowers and pot plants as well. In the Orange Nassau Pavilion you can enjoy colourful floral displays that change every week. The Willem-Alexander Pavilion shows many thousands of tulips and during the last twelve days of the season it is home to the world’s largest lily show, a true spectacle. For eight weeks long the Beatrix Pavilion gives you the chance to enjoy a mass of orchids and anthuriums.
Private Tour of the Keukenhof
Since the gardens are only open for 8 weeks a year and visitors flock from all over the world to see them, you can expect it to be crowded. Therefore we advise you to go very early morning or in the evening to avoid the largest crowds.
With Amsterdam VIP Tours you can book private transfers from your hotel to the gardens and back. If you wish a private guide accompanies you to arrange a scenic route and guide you in the gardens. We bring you there by private car or mini van.
Cycle the tulip fields!
If you are in good physical condition and would like to absorb the flowers and enjoy the flowerfields, you can also rent a bike. You are not allowed to take the bike inside the park, but you can cycle the stunning Bulb Fields in the area. You could do this by yourself or together with your guide.
What is the best time
“When is the best time to see the flowers?”
We often get this question. And it is not an easy one to answer. The opening weeks of the gardens are set a year ahead, however the blooming of the tulips heavily depends on the weather. And the weather in the Netherlands is far from predictable…
So the safest period most of the time is in the middle of those 8 weeks. Let’s say mid – end April. But… no guarantee.
“Creating unique memories!”
