In 2022 the Keukenhof gardens entrance tickets and combi-tickets are valid for one-time entry on a specific date and time. Some dates and time slots can be sold out quickly. It makes sense to do a reservation in advance.
When is it the best time to visit Keukenhof in 2022?
To see the flower fields in bloom we recommend to come to the Netherlands from last decade of April to the first decade of May (though the exact dates are very dependent on weather). During this period the chance to see the flower fields in bloem is the highest. You will find numerous publicly accessible fields in the neighbourhood of Lisse and Hillegom.
You can also take a whisper boat that departs from Keukenhof itself and floats through the flower fields in the region. The boat trip takes 45 minutes.

“In Full Bloom” exhibition
The Keukenhof theme in 2022 is Flower Classics. This year, from 24 March 2022 onwards there will be a special Mauritshuis inspirational garden at Keukenhof which will feature a replica of Johannes Vermeer’s most famous painting, Girl with Pearl Earring.
The Mauritshuis museum is one of the most famous Dutch museums. It is located just 30 km away from Keukenhof, in the center of The Hague. It’s a great idea to visit both locations in one day.
This year the Mauritshuis museum is celebrating their 200th birthday. The exhibition In Full Bloom featuring the most beautiful flower paintings of the 17th century is open from 10 February 2022 till 6 June 2022. Definitely worth a visit! Remember to book tickets in advance.
