We have had to wait a long time for this, but the time has actually come. The Tulip Festival Amsterdam has started again. This year there are more activities than ever. Of course, Keukenhof Gardens are open, but there are also new tulip attractions like the Tulip Experience Amsterdam and The Tulip Barn, wonderful bicycle routes and special sightseeing tours. In short, enough to celebrate spring! And the best part is that the first flower fields are already in bloom.
Current state of the tulip fields in Holland
The daffodils, crocuses and hyacinths are in bloom. Early tulips have also been spotted. We expect to see more tulips in flower next week and in the second week of April more and more tulips will start to bloom.
Weather forecast Holland
This weekend will be glorious spring weather with lots of sunshine and high temperatures. “It will remain cold at night, which will prevent the flowers from blooming too much. After the weekend, the temperature will drop slightly and the number of sun hours will also drop. This is positive news to make the flowers bloom as long as possible.
Flower Forecast 2022*
We expect flowering to be about 10 days ahead of average flowering.
This means we expect the following blooming periods for the flower fields:
- Crocus – blooming between now and end of March
- Daffoldils – Daffoldils fields from now till the second week of April.
- Hyacints – Hyacint flower fields from now till the third week of April.
- Tulips – We expect the first tulips to start blooming from the end of March. Peak blooming will be between the second week of April till the end of April.
*We try to predict the flowering of the flowers as well as possible. However, the bloom continues to be influenced by nature. Due to weather conditions the flowering process can be different than what we expect.
**The above forecast applies to the flower fields. The flowering at Keukenhof and in the other show gardens will be the whole season. When planting, early and late blooming flowers were taken into account. Also, the flowers are not headed.
Flower Map 2022
Check the flower map below to see how the flower fields are currently blooming. We update the flower map weekly.
Blooming of the flowers at Keukenhof Gardens
The blooming of the flowers at Keukenhof Gardens is a bit different from the blooming of the flower fields. The flowers at the flower garden have been specifically chosen to ensure that blooming flowers can be seen from the opening (24 March) to the closure (15 May) of the park. Also, the tulips are not headed so the tulips can be admired much longer in Keukenhof than on the flower fields around the park. The same applies to tulip show gardens and tulip farms. They will probably all have tulips flowering until 15 May.
If you are visiting Keukenhof Gardens this year. Please make sure to buy your tickets online and skip the waiting lines.
