Keukenhof and Lisse Web links:
The official Web site of Keukenhof has all the facts you need to plan a visit to
the gardens. You can order tickets in advance from Keukenhof's Web site to avoid
queues at the ticket office. (Parking tickets are also available online.)
The local government's tourism site is skimpy, but it
does contain some information on what to see and do in Keukenhof's home town. If
you're looking for a place to stay in Lisse, try the three-star
Hotel de Duif
(which is within walking distance of Keukenhof and the
Black Tulip Museum) or the
Nachtengaal van Lisse (which is 1.3 km or less than a mile from the gardens,
with bike rentals available).
From Europe for Visitors:
once-in-a-decade World's Fair of horticulture will run from April 5 to October
It's only about an hour to Keukenhof from Amsterdam, the subject of this
illustrated 24-page collection of annotated Web links.
