The Good News
What is the best time to visit Keukenhof?
Whenever you go at any time or day, you can have a good time & enjoy at the Keukenhof.
There are always beautiful flowers to see and it’s a wonderful place to walk around. So even if there are not so many tulips to see outside yet, it’s still a good place to go!
Weather in Holland
You never know about the weather in Holland.
It could be a pleasant sunny day in March or an cold and rainy day in May.
So be prepared.
The first two weeks there are almost no tulips outside in the park. But inside in Willem Alexander Paviljoen there are many different beautiful tulips to see. In the gardens outside there are a lot of other flowers blossom.
When the tulips outside are in full bloom, is hard to say. It depends on the weather too.
Mostly from half April it’s a good time to see the tulips outside in bloom.
Everyday there are many people in the Keukenhof. Keukenhof is a big park. So mostly even when it’s crowded, it’s still a good place to walk pleasantly. But if you really want to avoid the crowd, come in the early morning (from 8:00 AM) or late afternoon (17:00-19:30). At those times it’s very nice to walk around!
The Best Time
If you really want to see all the tulips fully in blossom outside in the park, then the best time to go is end of April or begin of May.
At those 2 or 3 weeks the tulips are fresh and there are a lot of fields to admire.
An exact time is hard to say, because it all depends on the weather.
Every year “the best weeks” could be on a different period.
So what is the best time to visit Keukenhof?: ± April 22 – May 12. But don’t take that too literal.
As we said before:
“The Keukenhof is always on any day a good time to go & enjoy!”
As a professional photographer, we are gladly to make some beautiful pictures of you between the flowers.
When you want less people as possible, the the best times for a photoshoot are:
8:00-10:00 hrs. or 17:00-19:00 hrs. Both times will have good light for photography too.
However most shoots we do regular on midday, because it’s convenient for most people.
So, don’t think to much about the correct time. Relax,……& we will manage about the
right light, angle, background and composition at anytime!
Keukenhof in March
As you can notice in this video (March 2017), even in March you can see a lot of flowers (including tulips) outside in the parc.
You also get a glimp of the tulips inside Willem Alexander Pavilion.
