Seeing tulips in full bloom in spring is one of the highlights of the tulip season in the Netherlands. Witness this enchanting spectacle firsthand during the exclusive Keukenhof photoshoot experience. We recommend scheduling your photoshoot between mid-April and late May for the best chance of catching tulips in full bloom.
However, we can accommodate early April shoots at Keukenhof, where you can still capture stunning photos amidst a variety of blooming flowers, though tulip blooms will probably not be in full bloom yet. Let our professional photographer capture the essence of tulip season in stunning images that will last a lifetime!

Known as the world’s largest flower garden, Keukenhof is a dream come true for locals and tourists alike. The gardens offer different color backdrops for taking photographs with their vast expanse of tulips, daffodils, and hyacinths.
Despite what many non-locals believe, Keukenhof is not in Amsterdam. It is located in the city of Lisse in South Holland. The most famous world tulip garden is located at Stationsweg 166A, 2161 AM Lisse, and can be reached by bus, car or taxi.
Keukenhof, which translates directly into “kitchen garden” in English, wasn’t always such a major attraction in the Netherlands. It started life as a fairly unassuming kitchen garden attached to a castle, but today it hosts more than 1 million visitors a year.
What makes The Netherlands one of the world’s most unique countries? Nightlife, old Dutch houses, canals, and of course, the TULIPS!
Keukenhof is widely regarded as the world’s largest flower garden, during spring covers 32 hectares and features more than 7 million flowers, including daffodils, roses, and, of course, tulips, providing a charming backdrop for capturing the beauty of life’s special moments.
Whether you’re a solo traveler, a couple on a romantic getaway, a family celebrating a milestone, or a group of friends cherishing a fun-filled adventure. Keukenhof’s gardens provide an idyllic setting for a dream proposal. It is our goal to ensure your special moment is orchestrated flawlessly, leaving a lasting impression on your hearts.
Forget about maps, the selfie stick and the hassle of asking strangers for photos! Our professional photographer, Sandra, will take care of everything!
Upon arrival at Keukenhof Gardens, Sandra will greet you warmly with a welcoming smile as you begin your tulip field journey. While shooting surrounded by tulips, she’ll guide you through the stunning garden, sharing fascinating facts about the Netherlands. You’ll also learn about the history of tulip mania!
The best time to see Keukenhof depends on what kind of flowers you want to see. If you want to see crocuses and some early tulips, the best time to visit is in late March. Hyacinths bloom in early April, and tulips bloom in mid-April to mid-May. The tulips are in full bloom in mid-April, so this is the best time to see the garden if you want to see a sea of tulips.
Tulips are at their peak in mid-April until the second week of May, so if you want to see them blooming, come around this time. It’s best to visit early rather than late in May, when some tulips may be beginning to wilt.
The average visitor spends 3 to 4 hours at Keukenhof, but this can vary depending on your pace and interests. If you’re interested in seeing all of the gardens, taking photos, and exploring the various attractions, you may want to allow for a half day.
Our Keukenhof shoots last for 1 hour and 30 minutes to 2 hours, leaving ample time for you to explore the park’s many attractions after your photoshoot. Wander through the captivating tulip pavilions, take a leisurely boat ride, or admire the iconic windmill. And don’t forget to savor a delicious meal at one of Keukenhof’s delightful restaurants.
