      Hi Gina, at this point there are just a couple of early tulip fields. I know two fields at this moment. The other flower fields will start to bloom from the 2nd /3rd week of april. You can find daffodil fields and some hyacinth fields are starting to bloom. At this moment we are waiting for some nice sunny and warm weather and when there is there will be a color/blooming explosion 🙂

    we are planning to visit kukenhof and the sorrounding fileds on 17 april 2015. what can we expect on that day?? will the tulips be in full bloom in and around.


    1. Nienke says:

      I would love to, but I can’t predict nature to the day. We expect to see the tulip fields in bloom by the 2nd/3rd week of April. It all depends on the weather and temperature in the next two weeks. The last days we had everything from hail and storm to sunny and warm temperatures, it is april. Probably you will see some tulip fields by the 17th of april. You might see some hyacinth fields. And I am not sure it will be peak blooming. Wishing you a lovely trip to the Netherlands.

    hey, I was wondering what the best weekend is to go to keukenhof when all the flowers are blooming outside fields. I was thinking of the weekend of 25th and 26h april. any suggestions?

    thank you.

    1. Nienke says:

      The weekend of the 25th of April will be the busiest weekend due to the flower parade on Saturday. Have a look on our blog for more information about the flower parade. Blooming wise I am sure it will be lovely, but I suggest to go on the Friday or Monday when you want to avoid traffic jams and crowded Keukenhof.

    Thank you so much for the update.
    Please could you tell me when the tulip fields are usually headed? I understand that it depends on the weather so it is difficult to predict but I would be very grateful if you could tell me what happens usually. We will be visiting Keukenhof on May 2nd and was wondering whether to combine it with a boat trip. From what I have read it sounds like the Keukenhof should still be worth visiting but are the tulips in the surrounding fields likely to be finished by then?

    1. Nienke says:

      It all depends when the tulips start blooming and what the weather will be during blooming. The heading of the tulips in the fields (not Keukenhof) will start just after peak blooming) We don’t know yet when the peak blooming will be. Just to be sure … walk up to the platform of the windmill before booking your boat trip. When you see color in the fields from up there you will see blooming flower fields from the boat. (and if you don’t see any color this means that the flowers are headed). A lot of farmers will start from the 30th of April but not all the fields are headed at the same time.

    I´m very glad I found your website, it is very useful!
    We are travelling to Amsterdam the day after tomorrow (8th of April) and be´ll be there until Sunday. What can we expect? Are there at least any fields of tulips or other flowers? I would be very gratefull if you could indicate me where these fields are, if there are any.
    Thank you in advance
    Best wishes

      Have a look at the photo album to see what you can expect at Keukenhof and surrounding fields. https://www.flickr.com/photos/nring23/sets For tulips in the field it will be too early. But you will find daffodils and hyacinths in the fields. See the album maps for car/bike routes.

    If I come to the netherlands om May 5th, will I still see tulips in the fields? How about the gardens in keukenhof?

    is it better to come ny april 24th or so?Thanks

    1. Nienke says:

      It is too early to tell if the 24th or the 5th will be better. The tulips are not in bloom yet. Please sign up for the weekly update (you will get it a day earlier than it is published on the website http://tulipsinholland.com/sign-up-for-weekly-flower-update/ and decide for yourself if you are going to wait till the 5th or travel on the 24th. Have a lovely trip to the Netherlands 🙂
