Best places to stay near the tulips in Holland (2019 edition)
When traveling to the Tulips in Holland you can stay in the city center of Amsterdam like most tourist, but you can also try to find a place to stay near the tulip fields. During the day it can be busy, especially around the Keukenhof area, but at the end of the day there is nothing better as overlooking a beautiful flower field alone by yourself. I made a search for you what are the best places to stay near the tulips in Holland.
There are a couple of mayor tulip area’s in the Netherlands
- The Keukenhof area near Lisse, just 20 min. from Schiphol Airport is the most well-known area.
- Than you have the Top of North-Holland (above Alkmaar) and
- Last but not least the Flevopolder Area (Near Emmeloord).
These areas a perfect for an all tulip holiday or a stay for just a couple of days to recover from a busy stay in Amsterdam or any other city.
I have selected a couple of small hotels and Bed & Breakfasts right in these tulip areas. Keep in mind flower fields and these B&B’s are located in agricultural areas. Best way to travel is by car as public transportation is not close to farmland. And also keep in mind that it is not allowed to enter any flower field, unless you are accompanied by the owner. You can damage the bulbs even by walking into the fields bringing in bacteria from your shoes.
The tulips are in bloom for a short time during springtime. The blooming of the tulips is different every year. Read this article for information when the tulips are in bloom in 2019.
