Picking Tulips In Netherlands
You can’t pick tulips at Keukenhof Gardens, but you can pick tulips fairly close by. And anywhere you can pick tulips, you can see tulips. What’s more, instead of a sterile environment such as Keukenhof, you can see tulips being grown they way they have been for centuries in Holland. This is a great little side trip from Keukenhof, and you have a choice of returning to Lisse or just head back to Amsterdam from the picking garden instead of backtracking. The bus trip is less than 20 minutes from Keukenhof. If you spend an hour picking tulips, and head directly back to Amsterdam from the picking garden(about 40 minutes), the entire side tip would take about 2 hours from the time you left Keukenhof.
