Keukenhof an boat tour Leiden

Visit the internationally renowned Keukenhof gardens this spring, combined with a canal tour of the historic city of Leiden!

The Keukenhof is an annual outdoor flower show held each spring in the Keukenhof park in the province of South Holland, northwest of Leiden, in Lisse, the center of the bulb-growing region of the Netherlands. This year the Keukenhof opens on the 23rd of March and runs until the 14th of May.

The grounds are planted with more than 32 hectares (more than 79 acres) of bulbs and flowers, meticulously planned so that there are are always new blooms to enjoy. The extensive system of footpaths ensures that you can stroll through the best examples of the world-famous Dutch flower industry, with specially-designed gardens, unique works of art and inspiring floral events.

Combine your visit to the Keukenhof and the bulb-growing region of Holland with a restful canal tour of Leiden, a lovely historic Dutch city with a rich past.

The Foundation De Leidse Rederij offers you a guided tour of Leiden, centering on the splendor of “Oud-Leyden”, the historic center of the city. Relax on our boat as you tour through this lovely old city, recovering from your stroll through the Keukenhof!
