Keukenhof: photos of previous years

The pictures below are taken just after the opening of the Keukenhof 2018. In the greenhouses, all flowers were in full bloom. However, because of the cold winter, most tulips outside are still waiting to bloom. Depending on the early warm weather, the best time to visit the Keukenhof in 2024 will be probably 2 or 3 weeks after the opening. The rising temperatures will be rising will definitely influence the flowers to bloom. Our expectations are that the Keukenhof is going to be its prettiest from the 11th of April till the first week of May, close to the end of the season. However, also after the first week of May till the end of the season, you’ll have more than enough flowers to see!

      There are some shops that sell similar products at the airport. Depending on what you’re exactly looking for, you can probably also find some sellers online.
