" Amazing place! We went at the very end of the tulip season when the tulips in the fields surrounding the park were all dead. But inside the park it was stunningly beautiful. Yes, some flowers were past their peak but so much was just amazing, and the place is huge. And arriving late afternoon at the end of the season, we had the park almost to ourselves. Wonderful! "
" Excellent collection of Tulips. Some of the colours are unbelievable. Looks like artificial flowers unless you touch and feel. The tremendous work of the people maintaining the gardens calls for a standing ovation. The upkeep of the exhibition enclosures and the outdoors are of exceptional high standards. One must spend a day here enjoying the beauty of the gardens."
" Beautiful experience of the pride of The Netherlands: flowers. Flowers everywhere, planted forming stunning views and create a unique experience with various themes and areas. You could easily spend a large portion of the day just wondering around admiring everywhere you look. However, since millions of people try to visit it in only two months, makes it quite busy any time of the day."
" Great place to visit in spring! For all flowers and nature lovers - you will definitely enjoy staying here. We only spent there half day and couldn't see everything. We were literally running around trying to make as many pics as possible. If you plan whole day visit you will get a chance to try boat trip, enjoy eating in the company of tulips and other habitants of Keukenhof."
" This is a great place to go in the spring and especially if the sun is out. Tulip and flower gardens are very impressive, creative, and well maintained. You can easily spend hours without even realizing it. The bus from the airport is very convenient and you can get park tickets there as well. You should look into it when you arrive in Amsterdam at the airport. It is worth planning into your schedule for a unique Dutch experience. "
