The Willem-Alexander Pavilion is tulip heaven. What most people don’t realize is that it is also Lily heaven in the last 10 days or so of each season. With over 15,000 lilies in over 300 varieties, this little known part of Keukenhof is worth seeing if you happened to missed tulip season.
Oranje-Nassau offers a new flower show each week. This is where the best come to be judged and the type of flowers being judged and displayed changes every week.
This flower pavilion is located at the heart of the thirty-two hectare springtime garden, the place to see spring burst into flower. The shows in the other flower pavilions, the Beatrix Pavilion and the Prince Willem-Alexander Pavilion, have a more permanent exhibits.
If you like orchids, the Beatrix Pavilion is the place for you. This is quite possibly the most beautiful orchid display in all of Europe. Make sure you budget at least an hour or so for the orchids as they shouldn’t be missed. The walk from Beatrix to the Windmill includes a hidden Japanese garden. Have a tea by the greenhouses or grab some poffertjes, small bite sized pancakes with butter and powdered sugarm from the cart near the playground.
The Julianna Pavilion teaches visitors about the history of the tulip. From the earliest trading of tulips to 17th Century tulip mania and economic bubble and the role of the tulip today as an icon of Holland and spring. You can learn more about the origin of the tulip in the historic garden.
If you want to sit down and eat in a food court like atmosphere, then Wilhamena Pavilion is the place to do so. Not really much else to see or do here.
This was the old entrance to Keukenhof. Now it is being developed to be part of the garden and its role will be defined over the coming years. Perhaps it will be for a special annual display or yet another exhibit.
Molen mean windmill in Dutch so Keukenhofmolen is the simply the big windmill in the garden. This place can get really crowded as everyone fights for the perfect picture or selfie. Try to hit the windmill first thing in the morning or the last thing before the park closes in order to get some time and space for your series of Windmill shots.
