The Royal Flower Auction starts early in the morning, so our air-conditioned vehicle departs at 6:30 am from Amsterdam Central Station. You have the option to add hotel pick-up in Amsterdam to your booking if you find the station too far or too difficult to reach.
But it's worth to be there early to experience the hustle & bustle of the floor of the flower auction hall! And although nowadays a lot of trading is done online, you still see traders bidding against the auction clock. Set off on a live-guided tour in English from a special gallery and learn about the flower industry. After the tour, you have some free time to take pictures or shop at the souvenir shop, before making the half-hour transfer to Keukenhof.
Upon arrival, your guide walks you to and through the entrance and sets up a meeting point. This way you have the opportunity to discover the beautiful spring flower park for around 3 hours in your own pace. Wander around and marvel at millions of flowers. Then it's time for the drive back to Amsterdam, where you are dropped off at the same place as where you started the tour.
Please keep in mind that not all flowers bloom in March and May, as this depends on weather conditions and fluctuations in seasons. But be assured, Keukenhof is still amazing in these months!
Please note: This tour includes hotel/port pick up and drop off service with an extra charge per person. You can select the pick up place of your preference from the list or select the "I'll type the address (next step)" message and write the name and address of your hotel in the relevant field during the booking process.
Please note: If you don't want to be picked up, you can meet us at Amsterdam Central Station IJ-Zijde, Kiss+Ride WEST (K+R), taxi stand west, De Ruijterkade, Amsterdam, 1212pl
