When you visit Keukenhof, known for its tulips, you expect to see tulips. You expect all colours apart from green. Instead, the only colour you see is green and hardly a flower in sight. Maybe it is early in the season, but this is a rip-off of epic proportions. Avoid at all costs.

We have always wanted to visit the Keukenhof Gardens to see the flower fields and knew that they were only open for a few months, so we decided to go during the Easter break. Unfortunately, the late harsh winter has meant that the fields were not blooming as yet which was a shame. However the gardens themselves and the pavilion displays were wonderful and spectacular. Give yourselves a good 2-3 hours to wander room and enjoy and don’t forget to go in the windmill and have a picture with the oversized clogs. Oh so Dutch....

Visited on 31st March & some of the tulips in the gardens weren’t flowering (apparently northern Europe has had the coldest March in 30 years). Nevertheless the hothouse tulips in the indoor pavilions were in full bloom as were many of the other bulbs in the gardens, like daffodils & hyacinths. I’ve never seen so many varieties, colours or sizes of tulips - they were truly magnificent.

We had a very early start from Rotterdam to be there by opening time but it was worth it as by lunch time there were thousands of people.

Highly recommend a visit if in the Netherlands during the spring.

Amazing place to visit. We were lucky that the sun was out until ten minutes before we left. So much to see. We didn’t have children with us but there was lots for them to do. So pretty and peaceful. Lots of shops and places to eat too which were really cheap. Highly recommend this place.

I was initially expecting fields of flowers, literally. We have been to a bulb farm prior to Keukenhof visit. There were a nice variety of flowers but not the flower fields I had in mind. It was a good walk anyway. There were lots of visitors but the huge gardens can accommodate more.

Theres a number restaurants in the garden which is really good. Also, there were benches scattered for a few minutes of rest while strolling.
