Spring! It’s the time of the year where the flowers bloom and the forest comes alive. And that reminds me of Keukenhof garden. I have been hearing so much of this place. The variety of tulips in a single location!
When you touched down in Schiphol airport head straight to I amsterdam Visitor Center
In the Visitor Center you can:
- buy the entrance ticket to Keukenhof garden and
- get a 1 Day Amsterdam & Region Travel ticket which enables you to take the train, bus, tram and metro
If you are like me staying in the city you would need the 1 Day travel ticket because Keukenhof is located in another region and it would require you to take train from city to Schiphol airport and then catch a bus from the airport to the garden.
The bus stop is located at the side of the airport just look out for the bus with lots of tulips on it.
Once reached the garden you will be greeted with brightly coloured tulips! Lots and lots of them!
Remember you bought a 1 Day Amsterdam and Region Travel ticket? Do plan your day before you make your trip to Keukenhof. What I did was… I took the first bus and went to Keukenhof garden in the morning and it took me a couple of hours to finish the garden. After which i used the region pass and travel to Haarlem for lunch and explore the town.
