Keukenhof Garden located in Lisse (around 36 km from Amsterdam) is known as the largest garden of Europe housing millions of tulips as well as daffodils, crocuses, hyacinths, and other flowers. The garden itself is fabulous, and so are the tulip fields stretching around. You will be carried away by the endless colourful raws of flowers, flowers, and flowers...

Keukenhof Garden is open to visitors only in spring—naturally when the flowers are in bloom. The season lasts approximately from late March to early-to-mid May, including weekends and holidays. If you ask about the very best time, it must be April. However, some blooming is always on, with flowers changing one another.

The early tulips appear the first, later follow the larger tulips, and so it goes. To avoid the crowds, choose either the start or the end of the day—then Keukenhof is less busy. Also, Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays see fewer tourists than other days in a week.
