How to find and How to get to Flower Fields in Holland


This post about Holland flower fields, how and when is better to see them. I tried to find in the internet exact address and coordinates of these fields, but I failed. Everybody publish only approximate description with only city name or +/- 5 kilometers precision. The main reason why I made this article is to guide tourists how to find exact position of Tulip Fields in The Netherlands and how to get to that places. This post was originally created on 19 April 2015, but most probably this information will be actual for many years later.

Detailed report

Which flowers it is possible to see on the Holland fields

In The Netherlands on the big fields basically people grow 3 kinds of flowers: Hyacinths, Narcissus and Tulips. First start blossoming Hyacinths and later Narcissus and Tulips. But everything depends on kind of flower. There is different kind of tulip, some of them start to blossom early some of them later.

In which region these fields are located

Most of the tulip plantation are located near city Lisse along N208 road. This region is marked on the map below

When is better to go

This is the most complicated question. Flowers on the fields are blossoming very short period of time, about 2-3 weeks. Also during the trip planning, it is better to take into account that Hyacinths and Narcissus blossom early and Tulips later. In this 2015 year 18 April blossoming of Hyacinths and Narcissus almost finished, but tulips just started. However, different varieties of Tulips are blooming in different time. On one field Tulips were just with buds, but on another they already start blooming. In general it is better to see them in the middle of April, but it is really depends on the weather in each year. For example, in 2014 on 30 March it was already very beautiful.

How to get there and see fields

It is possible to get there by car with GPS coordinates of marked points or by bicycle. Parking can be a problem, because of blooming season is very short and many tourists want to see and make a picture with flowers. In many cases entrance to the fields is forbidden and inhabitants do not like this. But many people do it, how it is shown in the picture :)

I remember when farmer came and ask everyone to go out.

In worse case scenario it is possible to see the fields through canal like this


By bicycle it will be much easier to get the parking, than by car. If you have a chance to go there by bicycle, it is preferred option.

By public transport to get to each point may be difficult. In this case, most probably, better decision is to visit Keukenhof and fields just in front of this park (Point 6).

Description of each of 7 points recommended here
I drove from The Hague (Den Haag) to Amsterdam, if you prefer reverse direction, just read this section from the end :)

Point 1

GPS Coordinates: N52.23863,E4.53587, Address: The Netherlands, 2161 Lisse, Heerweg 435A
Street view with field: here

There is a street parking in this place, looks like it is free. I saw there only hyacinths. Although nearby about 300 meters I saw tulips, but it was difficult to come close by car. It is possible to come to the field only through somebody’s garden. After our visit owner block up the entrance by his car. But directly from the parking place it is also nice view. Photos below (First picture has GPS position in EXIF.):


Point 2

GPS Coordinates: N52.24920,E4.54504, Address: The Netherlands, 2161 Lisse, Heerweg 344

In this place it is easy to come and park car on the dead end street. When I wrote this article there were 2 fields, one with red tulips with easy access, and second with hyacinths with closed entrance. Photos are attached. First picture has GPS position in EXIF.

This bee accidentally came to the flower :)

Parking is possible on the entrance to the field between the trees. Later you need to squeeze under the barrier with text “entrance forbidden” and walk around 200 meters to the field. Actually here 2 fields are located, one with hyacinths of different colors and another with tulips. Photo report is available. First and second pictures have GPS position in EXIF.




Point 6

GPS Coordinates: N52.27509,E4.54721

Maybe this is one of the most beautiful places, where all variety of flowers are presented. Hyacinths, Narcissus and tulips of different colors, including very nice tulips like yellow with red stripe and etc. This field is located very close to Keukenhof. It is about 300 meters from second entrance to Keukenhof. Second entrance is intended for people, who came by car. If you come by bus, you will be entering via main entrance. From main entrance to this field it may be difficult to walk or you will need more time. Parking on the side of the road is possible and everybody do it. Entrance to the field is possible, but note “Entrance forbidden” is there. It is possible to try to combine visit of Keukenhof and this field. In the Keukenhof you can view this field from the big windmill. This windmill has special observation area which is open for visitors. Photographs are below. First 6 pictures have GPS position in EXIF.
















Point 7

GPS Coordinates: N52.236792,E4.532559

Street view with field: here

Entrance is possible and very easy. This point checked in April 2016. Pictures from 2016 as well. All pictures have GPS position in EXIF.





P.S. If you read this post in the beginning or middle of April, then you have a chance to buy tickets and watch these amazing fields.

P.P.S. All pictures and GPS position (except point 7) related to the april 2015, but because in Holland people are very traditional these field can be found in the same place later years with possibility 90%.
