4 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 an 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!

What people are saying about Keukenhof

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Gardens fabulous, village quaint, canal ride very enjoyable. Tour good
The bus driver and tour guide very good. There were multiple language groups on our tour which took away from her time having to speak in 3 languages when she could have devoted more time to share the history of the Netherlands. While most of the tulip fields had already been either clipped or plowed up, they made an effort to find an area that still had a few rows of tulips left. Tour was timely. Enjoyed our canal cruise. Felt the narration via recording on canal cruise could have been more informative.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Even as a Dutch resident: surprisingly interesting
I took the tour with a colleague from abroad who suggested it. I thought it was kind of funny as I live in Holland. But I was really surprised how interesting it all was, and I would actually consider it for future visits to foreign friends. The last time I visited Keukenhof was… like 25 years ago, and I can see why people come over from all over the world, although it was the end of the season for most flowers. Nice!

Keukenhof Gardens Entry & Windmill Sightseeing Cruise reviewed by Eric

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Perfect to see the best part of Holland!
This trip was very nice! We sailed on the Kagerlake and saw a beautiful part of Holland. We went to see a windmill, we visited a flower auction and we got a tour at the cheese farm. The staff was very kind and made a delicious lunch for the group. There were a lot of things to choose from. There was cheese, salmon, eggs, bacon, meatballs and all sorts of bread. It was a great trip and I took a lot of photos to keep the memories! I would highly recommend this trip. A huge compliment to our tour guide Daniel who was very kind and told us everything. The thing I liked the most about this trip was the fact that they showed us all the hidden treasures in 1 day without you feeling rushed. We had enough time at every stop and the bus/boat was very comfortable.

⭐⭐⭐⭐ Excellent, really convenient way to travel around Amsterdam.
We bought the 5-day card and used the trams frequently to travel from our hotel to the center and around Amsterdam. It was a good value for money and completely took the hassle out of travelling around the city. We would definitely buy this type of card again.
