Quick links : Photo spot
Our second day in Amsterdam is a visit to Keukenhof. From our apartment, it’s a short walk to Elandsgracht bus station where we took bus no 197 to Schiphol airport.

At the airport, we transfer to bus no 858 just outside the arrival (side) exit. You do have to walk a little from the drop-off point of bus 197 to the pick-up point of bus 858.You can enter the airport or walk the outer perimeter of the airport to the pick-up point of bus 858.

There is quite a queue for the bus but you’ll never have to wait long for the next as there are plenty. The journey to Keukenhof takes about 45 minutes and you will be drop-off in-front of the entrance. With the riot of colors and the beautiful tulips, every corner is a photo spot.

Once inside, this fountain greets you.
Since Keukenhof is known for their tulips, here are pictures of them in various colors and forms.
Keukenhof is a big park and with all the beautiful tulip gardens we spent 4½ hours in it. While others got bored within an hour, we are yet to cover all the attractions in the park. There are numerous photo spots photographers would not miss and taking hundreds of shots is very likely. Although I am not a flower freak, colors attract my attention. Be it flowers or just painted walls. So more pictures below.
