Mondriaan Tulip Field in Flevoland

The Mondrian tulip field chimes perfectly with the national 'Mondrian to Dutch Design' year. More than 350,000 tulips in Mondrian's key colors of vivid red, white and yellow have been planted, complemented by an amazing dark purple tulip to recreate the dark sections. The bold black lines between the regular colored sections are created by strips of bare earth left unplanted. This spring the painting in bloom can be admired both from the roadside and the air. A helicopter will make continuous short trips from the 'Tulip Experience' field taking visitors on an air excursion to enjoy the full effects of the tulip painting. As well as the helicopter jaunts there are special hot-air balloon trips and a paramotor flying experience which you can book. You can also enjoy the Mondrian painting from the comfort of your car or you can opt to climb the watchtower poised on the rim of the field to get an even better view.

Longest continuous tulip route in Europe

There is a wealth of walking, cycling and car routes across Flevoland laid out especially for the tulip season and skirting some of the most beautiful fields you will ever see. The longest car route is an impressive 215 kilometers and leads you through the tulip fields of Dronten and Noordoostpolder. As well as the fields of flowers, Zeewolde's 'Smikkelroute' will guide you through the fruit cultivation region where the trees are now heavily in bloom.

Various activities

There are numerous activities in many of the towns and villages in Flevoland, all with the tulip experience at heart. For example, you can join Dronten's special tulip coach, take pictures from the 'selfie' field and be amazed in the Tulip Experience Field in Noordoostpolder where you will be enthralled with more than 460 different types of tulip.
