What People Are Saying About Keukenhof
Enjoyed the gardens, especially the free 2:00 PM tour. Taking the buses worked well, although some confusion about where to get the 2nd bus - coming and going.
Keukenhof is a wonderful place to walk and have a good rest for several hours. After visiting the park you can also rent a bike and run through the village and amazing flower fields.
The bus tour out to the gardens was a convenient way of getting there and skipping the queue for tickets. The gardens were absolutely beautiful...very imaginative in layout, colour and design. If you can visit in April do so as they seemed to be at their best.
Given this garden is open only for seven weeks of the year, I think we made it there at it peak and while the flowers were in full blossom. The place is quite tricky to navigate, but it's garden so there is no set route - you can roam where you like. Keep the map with you at all time though as you may need it to find you way back! Good access to snacks, ice creams and coffee in various spots - you'll need at least 3 - 4 hours to see the whole place. I had a great time with my family.
Just a tip for everyone interested. We went early in the morning and it was full but a short line (5-10 minutes of waiting) and we got there rather fast (it was 10:00-10:30 AM). However upon leaving (13:00-13:30 PM) the park was packed. So better wake up early and don't linger or you may have a crowded experience.
