The flowers can be viewed from mid-March to Mid-May with the tulips in full flower in mid-April.
There are many ways to view these stunning gardens and flowers, with a relaxing river cruise possibly being the most luxurious way to go.
Avalon Waterways also do a great 8 day ‘Tulips of Northern Holland’ river cruise which spans a round trip from Amsterdam to Amsterdam along the stunning Dutch waterways. As you can see on the map below, there are a lot of places you get to visit.
Riviera Travel have a wonderful shorter 5 day river cruise called ‘Amsterdam, Volendam & the Dutch Bulbfields’. It may be shorter, but on this river cruise you still get to see Amsterdam, Hoorn, Enkhuizen, Zuiderzee, Volendam, and of course, Keukenhof Gardens. Add to this the remarkable and wonderfully elegant five-star MS Lord Byron river cruise ship to sail on, and you can’t go far wrong.
