      Hi Kaylan, this blog is about the tulips in Holland, the Netherlands, Europe. For information about the Holland in Mi see their website http://www.tuliptime.com.

        Thanks for your quick response. I appreciate it.

    I am headed to Holland may 9-may 23 and was thinking of going to Keukenhof– is that last week still worth it?? We are from Costa Rica so lots pf gardens here but a little bit more wild and no tulips!

    1. Nienke says:

      Hi Alanna, In the Keukenhof garden I could still see a lot of tulips that are not in bloom yet. They should be blooming by the 9th of May. The tulips in the fields will be headed by than.

  3. Neha says:

    Hi, We are planning to visit Keukenhof on May 10/11. Is it worth visiting the garden on those days? Will enough flowers be in bloom by then?

    1. Nienke says:

      Hi Neha, I visited yesterday and a lot of tulips are about to start blooming. So it looks like the Keukenhof will be beautiful till the end of season. The tulip fields are getting headed already so I don’t expect that you can see tulips in the fields anymore by next weekend. Have a lovely time in the Netherlands!

  4. Hana says:

    I would love to see the tulip fields (around Keukenhof or anywhere!) before they’re headed! Would it be too late if I went this Friday or this weekend?
    And, I would like to know how it would look like if I went in the evening past 19:00.
    Thanks in advance!

      Hi Hana, the fields are being headed since last week. Every day more and more tulips are getting headless. I expect to see that most fields will be headed this week. You might find one or two fields left around Friday/this weekend. But I don’t expect to see lots of them. In the evening you can drive by the fields. Sunset is late so the fields will still be visible after 19.00 You can’t enter the fields, it is private property.

      1. Hana says:

        Hi Nienke,
        Thank you for your reply.
        I see…
        Do you know any other place that may have surviving tulip fields in the netherlands?

        Or in any case, I’ll try give it a try!

      2. Nienke says:

        The Netherlands is not big enough to have different blooming times. So all the tulip fields will bloom around the same time, give or take a couple of days. This is the same for the heading of the tulips. The tulip fields that are still blooming now are mainly grown for the bulbs and not for the flower.

    We are visiting Amsterdam on the 15th of May and did plan to visit keukenhof on the same day..since I read about the headings just wanted to confirm if it’s still worth the visit to keukenhof? Any kind of feedback is appreciated !
    Many thanks,

      I visited the Keukenhof yesterday and it still looked very nice! So I expect that the 15th will be nice too. There won’t be any tulips left in the surrounding fields but the Keukenhof is still worth visiting in my opinion.
