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???
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...
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
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.
