Keukenhof is open daily from 08:00 – 19:30 from 22 March - 13 May 2018. That includes Sundays and holidays! The box office closes at 18:00 though you can still buy tickets from one of the ticket machines adjacent to the box office.
Flowering at Keukenhof parallels that in nature. The crocuses, daffodils, hyacinths and early tulips flower at the start of the season. Other flowers bloom later in the season such as the (larger) tulips. Our pavilions feature entrancing flower shows from the first to the last day of the season.
Up-to-the-minute reports on Keukenhof’s flowering can be found here. But you can also follow us on Facebook: during the season we post a flowering report every Thursday so you can stay abreast of the latest developments.
Want to enjoy the peace and quiet of Keukenhof? It is less busy before 11:00 and after 15:00. The light of the morning and evening sun allows you to take wonderful photographs. It is also less busy on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday than on the other days of the week.
Tickets are undated and can therefore be used (once) at any time throughout the opening season. This also applies to Combi Tickets. Your ticket will be scanned the day you visit Keukenhof.
Combi Tickets are train and/or bus tickets valid to and from Keukenhof + a ticket to the park. The bus stops outside Keukenhof’s main entrance so you can walk straight into the park. A Combi Ticket is a return ticket. Further information on and options for ordering Combi Tickets can be found here.

To complete your visit to Keukenhof you can take a boat trip through the endless bulb fields that surround the park. You can purchase tickets for the daily cruise from the windmill in the park. The latter is situated at the edge of the park and is also where you get on board the boat. The electrically powered boat does not cruise through Keukenhof. More information can be found here.

The 2018 Bloemencorso will take place on Saturday 21 April. More information on the flower parade can be found at www.bloemencorso.nl.
Accessibility during the Flower Parade
The Bloemencorso or flower float parade on 21 April 2018 will attract a lot of people. If you just want to visit Keukenhof, we recommend picking another day for your visit. The roads in Keukenhof’s immediate surroundings will be closed for the parade between 13:00 – 17:30. Keukenhof then becomes inaccessible; incoming traffic will be rerouted away.
No, that is not permitted as this land is owned by flower bulb growers.
You can however take photographs from the roadside or alongside the fields.
Unfortunately, we do not have a cancellation policy. Tickets will therefore not be refunded.
