When is the best time to visit Keukenhof 2019?
When are the tulips in full bloom?
We often get the question “What is the best time to visit Keukenhof?” This year the Keukenhof is open from March 21st till May 19th, 2019. The flowers though are the creation of mother nature and are influenced by the weather.
Update 15 February 2019
This year, this will be earlier than usual. Temperatures have been hitting spring values last week and will continue to do so. This means that nature is ahead of time and flowers will start to bloom quicker. Probably most flowers will already bloom the first week of April.
But normally the Tulip season starts around mid-April, but the crocuses, daffodils, and hyacinths usually show themselves earlier. What we can tell you is that almost every year April was a good month for flowers. Nevertheless, the gardens always have a lot to offer, so if Keukenhof is open, it’s always worth a trip.
