When it comes to a Keukenhof sightseeing trip, it’s not really about the best time to visit. Rather, it’s about the only time to visit! The garden usually opens in mid-March and closes in mid-May. So, there’s a very small window of opportunity to visit the garden. If you want to see the tulips at their most beautiful during you Keukenhof tour, try to book your Keukenhof tickets for the last week of April or the first week of May. Most of the tulips are in full bloom during this time; but, you should be aware that most visitors are aware of this, too. So, you can expect some minor crowding.
With several transportation options available to you during your Amsterdam trip, you should have no difficulty getting from Amsterdam to Keukenhof. If you’d like to go by bus, take the 858 bus from Schiphol Airport and you’ll arrive in about 30 minutes. Consider picking up the combiticket, which will save you a little money on round-trip transportation. If you are taking a Keukenhof tour from Leiden or Haarlem, then you’ll need to take the 854 or 50 Bus, respectively. The most luxurious way of getting to Keukenhof is by taxi, which could cost upwards of 100 Euros. Taking a bicycle is a nice way to see the countryside before using your Keukenhof ticket to enter the garden. And, finally, you can drive from Amsterdam to Keukenhof by taking the A4 South to N207 North and turning left on N208. At the traffic circle, take the first exit, which is Zwartelaan, and drive about a kilometre before turning left on Loosterweg Noord, which dead-ends at Keukenhof.
Short on cash? That’s O.K.! Should you wish to visit Keukenhof multiple times during the tulip season, you might want to consider buying a Spring Pass. It allows unlimited entry during the season. Now that’s value!
