The world’s most famous flower garden is open from 24 March till 15 May! Indulge in the largest and most colorful flower garden you can imagine and it is just a stone’s throw away from Amsterdam! For some reason I have never been to the Keukenhof but this year I will make my appearance in early April accompanied by my sister. Finally! I simply bought our tickets online on the official Keukenhof website.

Keukenhof: the world’s most beautiful flower garden

What to do?

I plan on going for a long walk around the various gardens by myself, but you can also book a 45-minute boat trip or 3-hour/full day bike ride in the area around the Keukenhof. Furthermore, there are plenty of places inside the Keukenhof where you can buy a coffee/tea or any other beverages and a bite.

How to get there?

This is probably the most popular question I come across on socials these days: how do I get to the Keukenhof? Well, you either go by car or public transportation. If you go by car you should purchase a parking ticket online when you buy your tickets. A parking ticket costs €6; an adult entrance ticket €18,50 (kids, 4-17 yrs, entrance ticket €9,-).

For those who rely on public transportation there is a Keukenhof Express leaving throughout the day from Amsterdam RAI and Amsterdam Schiphol (airport) to the main entrance of the Keukenhof.

Amsterdam RAI

The Keukenhof Express (bus 852) takes you in about 35 minutes to the Keukenhof. You can easily buy a combi ticket (entrance & transportation) online. An adult combi ticket costs €33,50. If you are staying inside or just outside Amsterdam you can take a bus/tram/metro to Amsterdam RAI. The combi ticket includes entrance Keukenhof and the Keukenhof Express only; you pay for your transportation to Amsterdam RAI separately.

Amsterdam Schiphol (airport)

The Keukenhof Express (bus 858) from the airport takes you in about 30 minutes to the Keukenhof main entrance. You can easily buy a combi ticket (entrance & transportation) online. An adult combi ticket costs €29,50. The combi ticket includes entrance Keukenhof and the Keukenhof Express only; you pay for your transportation to Amsterdam Schiphol airport separately.

Good to know

You are allowed to bring your own drinks and food inside the Keukenhof, just not into the restaurant areas. There are lockers at the main entrance to store small pieces of luggage.

The prices mentioned in this blogpost are from the official Keukenhof website. There are probably dozens of tour operations offering tours to the Keukenhof for various prices, but make sure it is worth it.

 

Hope to see you at the Keukenhof!
