Visit the Keukenhof Gardens and stroll through a sea of flowers. Europe's largest flower garden boasts 7 million flowers of different varieties and colors, representing the best of Dutch floriculture. Generally, the flowers are at full bloom in late April or early May, but the timing will change from year to year due to weather conditions. Keukenhof Gardens also hosts many special events throughout the year that are great opportunities to experience local Dutch culture while touring the gardens. “Dutch Design” is the 2017 theme for the Keukenhof Gardens and you will see a spectacular exhibition of local artistry and design throughout the park. Tours depart three times daily from Amsterdam, with extra departures during peak season, and the bus ride is about 45 minutes each way. Get fast track admission into the park so you will not have to queue for tickets then explore on your own time for 5 hours before heading back.
