A visit to Keukenhof’s castle
After all those flower fields, the bike tour is not finished yet. To finish off, we take a turn to the historic estate Keukenhof Castle. Between the flower fields, there is a beautiful historic castle, a core feature of the region. The castle belongs to Keukenhof, whose influences can still be seen in gardens that showcase centuries of landscaping styles. For this reason, we will also cycle along this beautiful castle. At the beginning and end of the season, you may even have the chance to walk one of the many walking trails!
When can I visit the Tulip fields?
When to visit the Tulip fields, depends heavily on the weather conditions and when you visit the Netherlands. You can count on the flowering period from the end of March to mid-May. If you visit the Flower Region at the beginning of the season, the chances are high that you will not only see tulips but also daffodils and hyacinths. Near the end of the Tulip season, it is more likely to see tulips in a variety of colors.
