We will be open from March 28 to May 16.

You can also let a guide show you around and reveal the secrets of this special bulb garden. He knows how through crossing and craftsmanship many varieties and cultivars such as the beautifully veined Rembrandt tulips were created. Many tour guides used to be in the bulb business themselves and know a lot about bulb growing in general and the history of the Hortus Bulborum in particular. However, they are just as happy to recount interesting and remarkable moments in the illustrious history of the tulip and the other bulbous plants in the collection.
If you are coming with a party of more than 10 people, and want to be assured of expert guidance , book your guide in advance. You can book now for next season. Smaller groups and individual visitors can usually call on one of the volunteers walking around the garden during their tour. A number of them speak one or more foreign languages, including English, French, German and Italian.
