    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.

    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.

    Cycling route along the flower fields

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    A colourful brochure in Dutch with a clearly described cycling route and map. It starts at Leiden Central station (where you can rent bicycles) and is 37 kms long.
    The route is signposted by 6-sided green signs saying 'Ontdek het landschap van Zuid-Holland' (discover the landscape of Zuid-Holland).

    Parking at Keukenhof

    by ATLC Updated Apr 23, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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.

    Separate area for tour busses, autos, motorcyles, and bicycles keep the traffic in and out of the gardens flowing smoothely. The parking fee was 5 Euro.

    A shuttle bus visits the three parking lots every few moments and delivers visitors to the gardens main entrance.

    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.

    by paul-760 Written Jan 22, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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+).

    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.

    To Keukenhof

    by chennaismartguy Written Apr 20, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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.

    Arrival by Car (or tour bus?)

    by hquittner Written Sep 20, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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).

    How to get There

    by black_mimi99 Updated Aug 24, 2015

    By car
    Keukenhof is located in an area known as the Bollenstreek (Bulb growing region) between Amsterdam and The Hague and is easily accessible via motorways A4 (exit Nieuw-Vennep) and A44 (exit 3, Lisse). 'Keukenhof' is well signposted after the exit.

    Public Transportation:

    Unfortunately there is no direct public transport option from Amsterdam to the Keukenhof. First travel to Schiphol by bus or train and change to the bus.

    From Schiphol

    You can take the Keukenhof Express (bus 858 from 20 march 2015 – 17 may 2015) from the bus station in front of the airport. Easy to find when you walk outside from Schiphol Plaza.

    Cross the bus lane and find bus number 858. This bus runs only during opening times of the Keukenhof. Every 15 minutes (00, 15, 30 & 45) a bus is leaving for the bus stop of the Keukenhof (entrance). It takes around 35 minutes to get from Schiphol to the Keukenhof.

    Be aware that on peak days there will be a waiting line for entering the bus. Be early or travel on alternative ways.

    A return ticket can be bought at the busstop for € 9,-. The busstop can be found at the bus station in front of Schiphol Plaza

    From Leiden

    Take bus 850/854 from Leiden Central Station to the Keukenhof. The bus will stop in front of the entrance. It takes around 30 minutes to get from Leiden to the Keukenhof. The frequency varies; check the site to see the departure times.

    A return ticket can be bought at the Arriva Store (see address below) for € 9,-. The busstop can be found at the bus station in front of the railway station of Leiden Centraal.

    From The Hague

    It looks like that the bus 89 from The Hague to Keukenhof is cancelled since 2013. Travel from The Hague to Leiden by train and take the bus from here.

    Special Tickets bus and entrance:

    There is a special Keukenhof combination ticket that covers the bus ride from/to Schiphol or Leiden and the entrance fee of the Keukenhof. It is for sale for the price of € 23 ,-* (entrance fee Keukenhof € 15,-* + busticket € 9,-* = € 24,-*) *price 2014

    Resellers of the Keukenhof Combi ticket:
    Arriva Store Leiden Stationsweg 41, 2312 AT Leiden
    Arriva Schiphol* Bij busstop Keukenhof Express
    AKO station Leiden Stationsplein 3 J, 2312 AJ Leiden
    AKO station Haarlem Stationsplein 11, 2011 LR Haarlem
    AKO Amsterdam CS Stationsplein 13 G, 1012 AB Amsterdam
    Holland Tourist Information (Schiphol) Aankomsthal 2, 1118 AX Schiphol
    VVV Leidseplein Leidseplein 26, Amsterdam
    VVV Amsterdam CS Stationsplein 10, Amsterdam

    AKO = is the bookshop at the station and VVV= tourist information

    It is a paper ticket – you don’t need a OV Chipcard.

    Be aware that this the trip from Amsterdam to Schiphol isn’t included in this! For people traveling from Amsterdam Centraal you can take the train to Schiphol (9 euro for a paper return ticket) or buy the Amsterdam Region Ticket where you can travel unlimited for one day in the Amsterdam Region for 13,50 euro with selected public transportation companies (no train).
