When is the best time for Keukenhof Gardens?

I would like to go to the Keukenhof Gardens and have some vacation time in late March. Is that too early to see all the tulips, etc.?

If they are open there will be flowers to see. However we have been there twice during the last week of April (once in 1974 and again in 2005) and there were flowers everywhere. Keukenhof is amazing in full bloom. A family member went in late March a few years ago and their pictures showed a lot less blooms than what we had seen. I think if you can go later in April you will see many more flowers. Weather could also be a factor of when the best time to visit might be. Check their website for more details. I would think from Wiesbaden it could be done over a weekend. If that is all you saw it would be worth it. IMO.

I would go before the end of April. We were in Amsterdam the 1st week in May in 2007, and the flowers had already all bloomed out. So disappointed!

Before we in March 2003 I researched the web pages for best dates to see tulips. I learned that the time varies with the years.

We were in Keukenhof Gardens the first week in April that year and saw the blooms before they started cutting them the next day. Read the webpages for advice on timing.
