About Kasteel Keukenhof, Lisse

The castle was built in 1641 as a country house. The word Keukenhof means 'kitchen'; in the Jacqueline, Countess of Hainaut used the castle's parks and the nearby Keukenhof Gardens as her herb garden. The castle has since had quite a rich 400 years worth of history. As you're guided through the interior, that history will be brought to life for you through portraits, furniture, monuments and decoration. Altogether there are five areas for you to explore: the main castle, the coach house, Frederick's Court, the court farm, and the 200 acres of woodlands surrounding the castle. When you visit the Castle, there may be a special flower exhibition at the park. It's worth checking out, especially as the fee is covered in the admission price. The food at the restaurant is pretty good, very innovative. And finally, there are events at the castle throughout the year - concerts, festivals, medieval fairs and of course, the spring flower show.

  • One of the most amazing places to go to. I am sure you will remember this as one of the most greatest places that you have visited. I recommend that everyone goes there for the full day and try to go there early in the morning since it's a huge Garden so going there early would mean that you have enough time to sit around and have a chill maybe enjoy some lunch outside and grab some ice cream. The children will have the best time as well since they get closer to flowers the nature and enjoy its beauty. It's best to visit this Garden on a sunny day. I recommend that you buy tickets early if you're going going by public transport. If you are using the public transport recommend that you come out of the park earlier because the lines can be longer when you are exiting at the closing hours and then you might miss the bus. If you're driving your own car then you have a huge parking space as well. The garden is well designed for babies strollers and for handicapped use.

  • Absolutely stunning place. The garden is massive and you can easily spend whole day here. Parking is not an issue as parking lot is also very large. There might be queues at the entrance but it is worth every second you will spend there. I've seen so many types of tulips I haven't had an idea that does exist. Its really lovely, relaxing and colourful place worth every penny. Highly recommended.

  • I don't know if this needs to be said but you won't actually see those vast bulb fields within Keukenhof itself - it is a big garden with tulip displays. So if you are looking to take those panoramic Nat Geo kind of photos, give this a miss and go cycling in the bulb region instead. If this is your first time in Netherlands in Apr/May and you just want to take photos of beautiful flowers and even some cute goats or rabbits, don't miss Keukenhof. Just so you don't feel so shallow, there's also a brief but insightful introduction of the history of tulips in Netherlands at the Juliana pavilion inside. There's no need to join a tour, it's ridiculously easy to get here via public transport - you will get here from The Hague in an hour or less. I reached at 3pm and the light was gorgeous. Stayed till closing time (7pm) and it was so nice and peaceful.

  • I would best describe this place as the Disney world of gardens, if you’ve ever been you’ll know that it is packed with mods tourists, a lot to see, and lines of people trying to take pictures with all the flowers. If you are here during the season it’s a must see the designs and tulips are incredible. If your not into mobs of people hold off for a less busy day and time. It’s also a big plus they allow you to bring your dog and outside food!

  • Huge botanic garden. Beautiful tulips. Orchids etc. Lots of restaurants and fast food. You have a little farm, small maze, a old mill that still "works". All amazing but the fact that they try to charge you for car parking even when we got the car parking paid online when we bought the tickets, and the souvenirs are like 4 times what they should be. Other than that all amazing.
