Trip Report Keukenhof - It's almost spring!

Amsterdam’s Schiphol Airport offers a good coverage of many European destinations, which makes the city a central hub for travelers to hop over from places to places. Second of all, it has an amazing train network connection (Such as Thalys) to neighboring cities. It is only 20 minutes away from the very center of Amsterdam city! Therefore, it’s perfect to just have a short stop over and walk around in the city.

One time, I stayed in the CitizenM, which is merely a 3-min walk from the Schipol; and there it has a bus-stop to offer shuttle bus to the Keukenhof – a garden you should visit during the good season. Transportation from Schiphol to the Keukenhof is even closer from the Amsterdam’s city center (for just 15 minutes). Known as the “Garden of Europe”, it is the largest flower garden in Europe for visitors to enjoy the blossoming of tulips and many different kinds of flower from end of March to mid May. You are welcome to visit my blog for more pictures and share your experience - http://wp.me/p5Lw9a-8z

Suggest going to the park early in the morning from Schiphol to avoid the roaring crowd and take nice pictures with the beautiful nature – the garden opens as early as 8am. The best time to view the tulips would be mid-end of April. The garden features a nice arrangement of flowers in different setting and styles, it also has a windmills, canals, various pavailionsm, flower-arrangement exhibits and sweet farm barn animals which create a fun and enjoyable environment.

Outside the garden is the long field of tulips and flowers that created the picture every saw from the internet. Across the entrance of the Keukenhog garden is a bike rental place where visitors could rent a bike on an hourly basis. The rental place also provides information and free maps about 4 different routes to see the flowerfields, dunes (even the coast) and explore the area!
