Flowering at Keukenhof parallels that in nature. That is why we cannot say in advance which time is the best to visit Keukenhof. 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.
