Beginning towards the end of March, fields all over The Netherlands began to bloom. We start buying tulips for our homes as soon as the Christmas tree is thrown out. There are various locations near Amsterdam where you may visit tulip fields (some very un-touristy). Read this article to learn more about the tulip fields in Holland.
The Netherlands’ most well-known flower fields are found in the regions of Lisse and Hillegom. Trains run to Hillegom, where you may walk to see the tulip fields. To view the finest of de Bollenstreek and its breathtaking fields, I do, however, advise renting a bike (in advance) that you can pick up at the station. By bike, it’s just great to follow (a significant portion of) this path.
For me, the ideal experience is to travel around the fields on a bike or in a car while appreciating their enormous size. Yet, Keukenhof is the place to go if you’re short on time and want to view tulips arranged in the most artistic ways and be able to take lots of pictures of these wonders. To get to Keukenhof Gardens from Amsterdam Central Station, take bus route 397. To get to the Keukenhof Gardens from Amsterdam-Zuid train station, use bus number 341.

A Keukenhof guided bike tour is a lot of fun to attend if you want to explore the Holland tulip fields but aren’t too keen on organizing it all yourself. The Keukenhof bike excursions are available from mid-April to mid-May, but you should book in advance because they tend to sell out rather quickly.
You will witness a ton of tulips during this guided bike tour, as well as windmills, the Keukenhof castle (which is encircled by flowers), and many photo possibilities. In April or May, a day trip from Amsterdam is ideal.
The region just north of Amsterdam is known as Beemster. The simplest method to observe tulips during your visit to Amsterdam is probably by going to Beemster. Because you can easily begin your tulip walk from Purmerend by taking the train from Amsterdam Central Station.
A short distance from Amsterdam is the cities of Almere and Lelystad. I’d suggest taking the train to Lelystad, renting a bike, and using this route to see the most stunning flower fields.
