Keukenhof Garden ExhibitionAbout

The Keukenhof Flower Garden is a magnificent springtime exhibition of Dutch bulbs, flowers and plants. With 32 hectares and 15 kilometres of footpaths, this beautiful spring park offers flower shows, themed gardens, artworks, restaurants, boat trips and fun activities for children.

Keukenhof has a different theme every year. 2013 was United Kingdom – Land of Great Gardens. 2014 brought the theme back to home roots with Holland – Canal Houses. In 2015, Keukenhof celebrates the Dutch artist Vincent Van Gogh, 125 years after his death. The main highlight will be an elaborate recreation of one of Van Gogh’s self portraits, consisting of thousands of tulips.


Buy your ticket in advance! You may have to wait in a long queue if you decide to buy your tickets at one of the special bus departure points.

Timing is key. Although the park is open for two months, the flowers are not necessarily in full bloom for the entire Keukenhof season. The best time to go to Keukenhof is mid­April, when spring is expected to be at its peak.

Get ready to post your selfie live from the gardens, as free wifi is available throughout the entire park!
