Flower Parade bus from Amsterdam, Haarlem, Schiphol Airport and Leiden

You can also easily travel to the flower parade with one of the Keukenhof buses from RAI Amsterdam, Amsterdam Airport Schiphol, Haarlem and Leiden. These dedicated bus lines run from the departure location directly to Keukenhof Gardens. The flower parade drives past Keukenhof at around 3.30 pm. Note: there are no stands here but you can watch the flower parade standing for free. You don’t have a fixed time slot for the return journey. So you can travel back at the time you want.

Tip: to get a good view of the flower parade, we advise you to watch it south of Keukenhof. At Keukenhof itself it is very busy and further along the route it often gets quieter. In the nearby centre of Lisse, there is a party every year. Watching the flower parade there is also great.
