    HI, We have booked travel to Keukenhof on 29 april and will stay until 2 may there. DO you think tulips would still be blooming since its early blooming this year?

    1. Nienke says:

      Yes I expect to see some tulips in bloom.

  2. Debbie says:

    Beautiful pictures Nienke! Keep up the good work!
    We will be visiting Keukenhof May 3rd, 2017!
    I hope there are some type of flowers to see!
    At least we will get a tour of the countryside!

    1. Nienke says:

      Wishing you a beautiful time!

    We’ll be visiting Keukenhof from Apr 14-18. What day do you think we should visit Keukenhof? The weather forecast says it will be raining every day during this time.

    1. Nienke says:

      It is typical Dutch spring weather -> four seasons in one day. The tulips still bloom during rain so there is no need to skip it 🙂 (bring a light rain poncho and you will be fine)

    1. Nienke says:

      I expect to see some fields but a bit less then this week.

    Hi Nienke,
    Thanks for Tuesday weekly update. We will arrive Lisse on April 19, beside tulip fields, will the daffodil fields still in bloom or they are probably gone by then? Thanks

    1. Nienke says:

      I think there will be some daffodil fields in bloom in 5 days. Some are done blooming but several still look good

    Hi Nienke,

    How to reach Flower fields around keukenhof?
    is it allowed to enter flower fields?


    1. Nienke says:

      You can enjoy the flower fields from the road around it. It is not allowed to enter the fields. If you want to walk between the tulip visit a tulips picking garden (like annemieke’s pluktuin in Hillegom)

    Have enjoyed your pictures immensely! We are planning to travel to Amsterdam in April 2018. We are considering two date options and would like to know if you have any recommendations as to which one might be best to see the tulips at Keukenhof and enjoy many of the other sights.
    Option 1: April 17 (Tue) – April 19 (Thu)
    Option 2: April 23 (Mon) – April 25 (Wed)
    While I realize you can never predict when the blooms are at their best, is there any better week that would help increase our chances? We would appreciate any guidance you may have.

    Thank You!

    1. Nienke says:

      These two dates are too close to each other to really make a difference in blooming. During regular years the last week of April look gorgeous. But when there is an early spring (like this year) or a late spring anything can happen.

  8. Debbie says:

    We arrive on Wednesday! I am so excited to see all the beautiful sights. Do you think the fields near Keukenhof will still be in bloom along the bike route or will we need to head out somewhere else?

    1. Nienke says:

      Yes they are still in bloom. Have fun!

  9. Ginu says:

    Hi Nienke,

    We are planning to visit Keukenhof between April 22st – May 1st 2017. Any day would be fine for us. Could you please suggest a day based on current status.

    Thank you!

    1. Nienke says:

      Monday the 24th is a perfect day to visit. After flower parade weekend and still a lot of chance to see the fields in bloom.

    Have all the heads been cut off the tulips in the fields around Keukenhof now? I saw someone say that they might have been on TripAdvisor…

    1. Nienke says:

      No they aren’t headed yet. It is impossible to do all the fields in one day. It is still looking gorgeous at the moment

  11. Beth says:

    Great – thank you! I’m arriving on Monday and hope they aren’t headed by then.
