Sightseeing the flower fields

During the opening weekend, not all flower fields are in bloom yet. However, usually the first daffodils, hyacinths and the first early tulip fields bloom. If you want to visit these, book a tour from Amsterdam with a visit to a tulip farm or book a bicycle tour or Land Rover tour with a local guide.

Hotel during opening weekend

The first weekend of Keukenhof is usually quieter than the month of April. This allows you to enjoy the many flowers in the park in a more relaxed way. Another advantage of March is that hotels are often (much) cheaper than in April. Take a look below for the current availability and prices of hotels near Keukenhof.
