Content: Arriving to the Tulip fields can be hard without having a car. The bus stops near the famous Keukenhof Gardens - we did not visit them because they were closed, but I also heard that they get pretty crowded and that the best to do is to actually visit the tulip fields outside of it. Without a car, however, you limit your chances to visit a lot of fields since the public ones (where you can enter) can be pretty far away from each other. This being said, I have to say that we had to walk A LOT. But was worth it as you can see from the pictures 😍 Best time to visit: from March to mid - May! The tulips are in full bloom in April 💯 outside of this time range you really see nothing. In short: get a car and just explore the zone. The private fields are well signalized and the rest you can visit 🥰 And also, please ALWAYS respect the places and the flowers. There is no point in pulling out tulips of the fields when in the flower markets you can get them really cheap!!
