    Signalisation in Keukenhof

    When you get there by car you will be directed to on of the parking places.
    There is a seperate parking spot for touringcars, it is called "Hyacint".
    We parked our car on "Tulip" that is at the opposite site of the parking "Narcis".
    Inside the park you will notice some signalisation.
    It shows you the direction of all the locations and the direction of your parking place, so you can easy find your way around and back.

    Keukenhof 2008

    If you're coming by bicycle, you can park it at the main entrance. The Van Dam bicycle rental is also there. They watch your bicycle and the only thing you need to do (although not obligatory) is leave a tip.

    Keukenhof main entrance

    From Schiphol (=Amsterdam airport) bus line 58 runs every 15 minutes to Keukenhof. The same goes for bus line 54 from Leiden Central Station. You're dropped off at the main entrance of the Keukenhof (see photo). Super convenient!

    There are also direct services from Amsterdam and The Hague, as well as combination tickets (bus and entrance fee). Just look at the web link below.

    Parking at Keukenhof

    by ATLC Updated Apr 23, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Fountain at main entrance

    Parking is well organised at Keukenhof.
    If you come by car, follow the signs for the car park. It is situated in front of the main entrance. There are parking guides that show you a place.
    If you come with a motor home, then follow the signs for the motor home car park.
    Buses park on the terrain of Castle Keukenhof at the Wilhelmina entrance.

    Parking costs € 6.
    The best thing to do is buy a parking ticket at the cashier desk when you buy your entrance ticket.
    An even better thing to do is buy your entrance ticket and parking ticket online.

    To Keukenhof

    Sorry I do not have the Bus photo

    The best way to go to Keukenhof is by just booking the tickets through trour operators. Especially when you dont have much and you want to cover this place. The cost includes to & fro to Keukenhof and the ticket to visit the garden. I booked for a 4 hours tour, which started by 9:30am at Damrak, Amsterdam and ends by 2:30pm. After seeing the gardens, we boarded the bus by 1:30pm. I find this time is comfortable to see all the places. But you can also book for 7 hrs or whole day tour.

    The public transport company CONNEXXION has just announced that they will start new bus lines from Den Haag, Schiphol Airport and downtown Amsterdam to Keukenhof this spring. Bus 89 wil run from Den Haag Central station, bus 370 from the famous Leidseplein in Amsterdam and bus 58 from Schiphol Airport. This means you do not have to travel via Leiden Central station anymore. Though bus 54 from Leiden will keep running also. The bus + entrance tickets are not available on the busses but at the tourist information desks in Amsterdam, Schiphol and the Hague. Prices of the combitickets have increaded to 19 euro this year for adults and 16 euros for seniors (65+).

    The parking area
    2 more images

    We arrove at Keukenhof on an early morning from Amsterdam by the A4 and a road to Lisse and marked signs to the Garden. (We took a wrong turn and wasted some time escaping from Lisse). The parking fields are just beyond the entrance gate and you are directed to a parking spot. It is then about 100 meters to the ticket booth and entrance pavilion where thankfully we got our light breakfast! On a previous visit we went by a tour out of Amsterdam (10-3PM) which stopped first (after circling outside of Haarlem) at a bulb showroom-garden and then left us to wander at Keukenhof and return (through the fields with comments; lunch on your own on the grounds).

    Keukenhof Express Combiticket

    by rrgt Updated May 15, 2005

    The Keukenhof Express Combiticket is offered by Connexxion at their office in Leiden Centraal. It costs 16.80 Euro for adults and includes return bus trip (on Keukenhof Express Bus #54) from Leiden Centraal to Keukenhof as well as entrance to Keukenhof itself. Buying the combiticket will spare you from worrying about strippenkaarts and lining up at the ticket stalls in Keukenhof. Try to arrive early as the buses to Keukenhof do fill up and the lines get longer as the day progresses. Schedules of the Keukenhof Express are available at the Connexxion website (in Dutch).

    You can get there by car, train or bus

    by beluga Updated Apr 24, 2005

    To begin with, i was a bit surprised to find "de Keukenhof" as a specific location, as it is an exhibition and not a city or village.

    Address:
    Keukenhof
    Stationsweg 166a
    Lisse
    The Netherlands

    Foreigners who travel in the Netherlands by themselves but without car, de Keukenhof is best reached by bus. During the season, you can get to the Keukenhof directly from Leiden Centraal railway station by bus 54 (Keukenhof Express)

    Keukenhof express

    by Nathalie_B Written Apr 3, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    It is very easy to get to Keukenhof from the Central Train station in Leiden. Take a bus #54 (also called Keukenhof express) which will take you to the flowers paradaise in just 20 minutes.
    You'll have to buy a bus ticket (strippenkaart) that will be stmaped by the bus driver. It takes 5 stripes (strippen) to get to Keukenhof anf another 5 to go back.
    Remember that you won't be able to buy the strippenkaart on the bus! Get it at the Leiden's train station, usually at the newspaper shops or supermarket chain Albert Heijn.

    The Keukenhof can easily be reached by car. It is situated between Amsterdam and Den Haag (The Hague) and close to Highway A4 exit 4 or Highway A44 exit 3.

    Follow the signs to "Lisse". In and around Lisse the Keukenhof is clearly signposted. The park is at Stationsweg 166a in Lisse.

    There are two big parking areas for cars and one for touring cars. The parking price is 4 EUR.

    The park offers easy-access facilities for the disabled. Pushchairs and wheelchairs are available free of charge. (Please reserve wheelchairs in advance). Keukenhof’s restaurants and terraces are a great place to take a break or relax after a well-spent day.

    GETTING TO KEUKENHOF

    by mel_bee Written May 14, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I took the train from Amsterdam to Leiden. They leave regularly and it takes around 40 minutes. From there head right out of the station to the Bus station where there is the Conexxion office. There you can buy a ticket which cost 15.50€ (less for children) and covers the return journey and entrance. The 54 bus leaves every half an hour and the journey takes just over 30 minutes. Check the timetable when you get off for your return connection. When you are inside Keukenhof you will find signposts for Conexxion which you need to follow to get back to the bus.
