This route takes you through the tulip fields of the Bulb and Dune region. In springtime the flowering bulbs form coloured stripes in the landscape. Highlight of the route is the Keukenhof, the world famous flower garden.
This route is all about seeing the tulip fields in flower, which is roughly from the end of March to the beginning of May. To have the best chance of seeing a good display of flowers, we recommend doing this route in the second half of April. If you’re in Holland outside the bulb season, we suggest you try one of our other routes in the area.
The Keukenhof flower gardens are closed for 2020. They will be open again from 20 March to 9 May 2021. Book your rental bike online for a visit to the tulip fields during this period and you will receive a free digital map and audio tour.
