However, friends have been visiting Keukenhof and I have of course enjoyed looking at their photos until now, when I've finally made a trip to see the spectacular variety of tulips and some other flowers on display for myself!
The magnitude of colours just blows one away! There are more than 7 million flowers in Keukenhof park itself and there's even more in the surrounding areas of Lisse so yes, if you visit during the tulip season of around March till May, you'll definitely be able to fully enjoy the glorious fields of tulips!
The park is also pretty easy to get to. We stayed in one of the hotels near the Amsterdam Schiphol Airport where there's a shuttle bus service that runs every day between the airport and the park. On weekdays, there'll be 4 buses/hour and 8 buses per hour on weekends.
The airport is also a short 20mins train ride into the city of Amsterdam so an airport hotel makes for a good base, in my opinion.
