Keukenhof visit just before the park closing. Is it good idea?

by mihaela_m84 Online Now May 6, 2011 at 2:32 AM

Hello everybody,

I will go visit Amsterdam between 17th and 21th May this year and I would really like to know if a visit to Keukenhof is worth making. I would probably go there on 18th or 19th. The park closes on the 20th. But do you think is really worth it or I 'd better focus on other sorroundings of Amsterdam since my stay is short anyway?

Thanks,
Mihaela

    I personally think its absolutely worth visiting - stunning - i was wanting to get back for a repeat trip this year but wont be able to - its very beautiful and very special!!
    If you have 4 days in Amsterdam only 2 days is needed to do Amsterdam well enough then its good to do some trips out of town - I fitted in a visit to somewhere else on the way and on the way back from memory.

    Its a train and a bus to get there though but worth it.

    Personally I could wander the canals for weeks and still enjoy myself in A'Dam, but I also say it would be worth it to see Keukenhof if you can and it is not raining! Have a great trip!

    I also heard and saw that Keukenkof is on all "must see" lists for Amsterdam but my concern was about the late date; whether there wuould be any flowers to see in its last days open.

    Thanks,

    The Keukenhof gardens are planted by specialists and they can determine when something blooms. It means that there are blooms ALL through the opening period. You'll absolutely love it. I can't think why I left it so late myself (3 years ago) to visit, and I live here!
