Keukenhof from Leiden: Cheapest option?  (7 Answers)


I wish to travel to keukenhof next year and will also purchase Amsterdam & Region Day card. While I will be staying in Leiden, I dont want to take the 858 bus from Schiphol. It will save me time if I directly board bus number 854 from Leiden Central. Now my question is how to purchase the ticket of this bus as its cost is not included in the region day card. Also I wont be returning back from the same route and I will further go to Haarlem, Zaanse Schans and come back via Amsterdam central on the same day. Which option will be more economical from the below and what shall be the total cost incurred:

a) Taking one way bus ticket of 854 number from Leiden central to Keukenhof
b) Buying combi ticket
c) Connexxion office ticket including entrance to the Keukenhof gardens for bus 54..which is 15.50€ as written in one of the post above.

Please inform on priority.

Keukenhof visit just before the park closing. Is it good idea?  (5 Answers)

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?

Bulb fields  (2 Answers)

I believe the bulb fields are outside Kuekenhof and have a cycle path and six routes. Can we (me & 10 yr. old son) visit the garden and the fields on the same day? How long do the paths take and if we had to choose one, which should we go for? Will there be enough tulips in the last week of April? Are there any vegetarian restaurants in Ams which open early enough (around 0800) for us to bring a packed lunch?

Need an affordable transfer from Rotterdam to Keukenhof and back.  (6 Answers)

Greetings! We're gonna be in Rotterdam from 8am to 5pm during a cruise stop in April of 2010. I'd like to hire someone (taxi, tour operator, etc.) to pick my wife and me up at 11am near Nieuwe Binnenweg 59 3014 GD Rotterdam and take us directly to Keukenhof. Then, at around 3:30pm that same day, we'll need a ride back to the cruise ship terminal. Can anyone recommend a provider who can do this? I don't need a tour guide or any special services. I just need a safe ride to and fro that doesn't several hundred Euros. Thanks for any advice!

Is a all-in-one ticket a return?  (4 Answers)

Going to Keukenhof with dd in a couple of weeks. We are coming to Netherlands from the UK via ferry to Hook of Holland. We take the train as part of this "rail and sail" fare to Rotterdam and from there can take any train to any city. I would like us to go from Rotterdam to Lisse Central and take the Connexxion bus to the Keukenhof, but I do not want to return to Lisse, as our hotel for the night is in Amsterdam. Can I use the Connexxion bus and entry ticket to go on directly to Amsterdam after we view the gardens? If not, what is the fastest and cheapest way on from the gardens to Amsterdam Centraal? Many thanks!

Help needed: Keukenhof  (5 Answers)

I'm planning to go to Keukenof and I've read that there's a direct bus from Schiphol airport (bus 58) to Keukenhof. My flight arrives at 7pm in the evening at Schiphol. What time is the last bus departing from airport to Keukenhof?

If bus 58 going to Keukenhof is no longer available at night, is there another bus or train from the airport that can take me somewhere near Keukenhof?

Also, any suggestions on a cheap accommodation to spend the night near Keukenhof? I can stay overnight here then go to the garden/park the next day for a daytrip.

Any suggestion would be greatly appreciated. Thanks a lot!!!!!

Time allocation  (4 Answers)

We plan to go to keukenhof for spring flowers in the coming week. We probably take a train to Leiden from Amsterdam, then a shuttle to the gardens. Would this pretty much the whole day if I also spend some time in Leiden too? How long should I spend in the gardens? Are there nice restaurants in Leiden you can recommend for dinner? What time do they normally serve dinner? Is it much later than North American standard of 6-7 pm?
