The history of Keukenhof dates back to the 15th century. Countess 'Jacoba van Beieren' (1401-1436) gathered fruit and vegetables from the Keukenduin [kitchen dunes] for the kitchen of Teylingen Castle. Keukenhof Castle was built in 1641 and the estate grew to encompass an area of over 200 hectares. Landscape architects Jan David Zocher and his son Louis Paul Zocher, who also designed Amsterdam's Vondelpark, redesigned the castle gardens in 1857. That park, in the English landscape style, still constitutes the basis of Keukenhof.
The park Keukenhof is open from 21 March 2019 - 19 May 2019 from 08:00 – 19:30. The ticket office is open from 08:00 – 18:00. Also on Easter (22 April), Kingsday (27 April) and Liberation Day (5 May) we are open from 08.00 - 19.30.
Want to enjoy the peace and quiet of Keukenhof? It is less busy before 10:30 and after 16:00. The light of the morning and evening sun allows you to take wonderful photographs. It is also less busy on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday than on the other days of the week.
