    Use this to plan a rail journey? http://plannerint.b-rail.be
    I personally would aim to train to LEIDEN CENTRAAL from anywhere including Schipol or Amsterdam or Berlin !
    Then at Leiden special bus connections where you have your printed your bus ticket and entry ticket as well, making access easier is useful. You can use this from Leiden station.
    Look at the details on :
    keukenhof.nl/accessibility.p...
    and the rest of the site for getting the ticket.

    For train offer look at this webpage of the Deutsche Bahn (German Railways):
    http://www.bahn.de/p/view/index.shtml

    If you buy an across the border train ticket at Berlin, it will probably be valid for all train destinations in the Netherlands.
    Leiden is the default train station to visit the Keukenhof. In the station hall you can buy a combination ticket for the bus and the Gardens entrance.

    Second option is a cheap carrier, but Berlin to Schiphol is not served by most of them. Try deals at Transavia or KLM.

    A hotel at Amsterdam fits both travel options.
