The small town of Lisse, south of Amsterdam and Haarlem, is home to the Keukenhof tulip garden, attracting hundreds of thousands of visitors from the world over each year.
Built in 1642, the castle is by far the most prominent building in the village. Unlike the gardens, it's available to visit all year round. Definitely worth a stop!
The Juliana Pavilion houses this exhibition that tells of the rise of the tulip in the Netherlands. From the Golden Age to the present, discover its economic and cultural impact!
Really, it doesn't get more Dutch than this... riding a bike through endless fields of tulips. It's the essential way to experience Keukenhof!
The Dutch word for pancakes is "pannenkoeken," a staple of local cuisine. Make it a quintessentially Dutch day and stop by for an afternoon snack at the restaurant!

What people are saying about Keukenhof
read through list of attractions you can use it on before buying. Excellent value if you want to use all gold and silver tickets on things you want to see.
I bought the pass thinking it was a good idea, and boy, it certainly was that. Being able to skip the HUGE queue at the Rijksmuseum made it all worth while on its own, but with the other museums and the transport too, it was good. Everyone spoke really good English, but the staff that explained it were really helpful too. The book you get with it took a little time to understand, but once I did, it proved much easier to understand than the other one I took - the Lonely Planet guide (althought that had other useful things in it as well). The only problem with the HollandPass book was that the attraction pages didn't say which sector the attraction was in, only the address. This meant you had to cross reference to another source to group the activities into a feasible day out. But a really good purchase - and it lasts not just for the one trip, so if we get a chance, we are going to go back and carry on with other parts of Holland.
Having just got back from Amsterdam, having this card was great. No queuing, information readily available on every street. Great that tickets last a whole year as was not able to use them all before my return to UK. Had two tickets left but really got value for money on tickets that I did use. Green ticket was difficult as not many places accepted them, but did not really matter as had used the most popular tickets. Would recommend that anyone travelling to Amsterdam bought these before leaving as it saves so much time.
The Amsterdam pass allowed us to see most of the places we wanted to go to either by instant or free access or skipping the queue. It was well worth it.
Provides a useful guide when planning visits to Holland's major museums and tourist attractions.
