How to see tulip fields around Keukenhof (exact GPS locations), Lisse - Holland - Netherlands

April 05, 2019

One of the best and surely the easiest option to see tulips in Holland is the Keukenhof Gardens. With more than 7 million tulips, daffodils and hyacinths stunningly spread across 32 hectares, Keukenhof is the most beautiful spring garden in the world!. (Keukenhof Guide & Practical info - link here)

However, if you are only interested in seeing the tulip fields, you don’t necessarily have to go to Keukenhof gardens. There are several colorful tulips fields around Keukenhof – Lisse area. But how do you navigate to these fields?

I looked for address/location coordinates all over internet; but there was no luck. So last year, I decided to explore the entire area myself and marked a few beautiful location coordinates. Hope this may be useful to those who are interested.

  • Please do not enter the fields!. By we walking through the fields, we are not only breaking a few flowers, but also spread sickness to the flowers. These flowers are farmers’ hard work, let’s not spoil them.
  • At certain period (typically 3rd / 4th week of April when the major 1st corps are done), some of the farmers will be kind enough to let you into the fields and may even click photographs for you. During this time, there will still be good amount of beautiful flowers.
  • I marked these location coordinates last year (Apr 2018). But assuming that these fields are traditional and don’t change much within an year, I hope you’ll find them at the same coordinates this year too.
