The best time to visit Keukenhof

by travellingtechie Online Now Apr 28, 2009 at 6:56 AM

Hi All!

Can anyone please let me know what is the best time to visit Keukenhof and the Tulip fields? I am planning to be there on Queen's Day, 30th April. Is it going to be too crowded? Or should I postpone my visit by a week or so? Till when are the flowers supposed to be in bloom??? And till when can I see the tulip fields??? Any ideas when does the harvesting of the tulips start in the fields???

Please help!

Regards.

Travellingtechie!

    Hey,

    I'm not sure about the flowers, but the best time for a great party is Queens Day in Amsterdam...You might wanna plan your visit to the flowers another day...

    Cheers
    Dennis

    you can find all info about de keukenhof at:

    they close may 21. maybe it will be more quiet on queensday because everyone is celebrating in the netherlands.
    i dont know when they start the harvesting, maybe you can email them?

    have a nice time

    Hi

    I went to Keukenhof in mid April 2007 (15-18 Apr) and the flowers were simply beautiful, all were in full bloom.

    See the pictures I took here.

    There are tulip fields near Keukenhof actually and most were blooming, and even on the way there we could see tulips and tulips and tulips.

    I can't predict how it'll be for you but maybe my information has helped you a bit?

    Good luck! You'll love the gardens.
