Which ticket do I need?

In most cases the Combi Ticket provides the best value for money. This discount day ticket is both your ticket to Keukenhof and your ticket for public transport on that day. The bus driver will drop you off just outside or close to the park’s main entrance and you won’t have to queue at Keukenhof for tickets.

Sometimes it is cheaper to use a different ticket for travel and purchase your Keukenhof ticket separately. This could, for example, be the case if you have a discount card for the area or if you have purchased a special day ticket for the date in question (such as the Amsterdam Region Travel Ticket or the Tourist Day Ticket). Would you like to know which travel tickets you can use? If so, please refer to the list of other tickets.
