Bulb Field Regions
There are several places in Holland where you can admire the beautiful, colourful flower-bulb fields. The most famous 'flower-bulb region' is located behind the North Sea dunes, between the cities of Leiden and Den Helder. Other, equally beautiful fields can be found in the provinces of Flevoland (Noordoostpolder and Oostelijk Flevoland) and North Holland, around Enkhuizen (Bovenkarspel and Andijk), and around the Breezand (Kop van Noord-Holland). Go to the local VVV tourist offices for maps with walking, cycling and car routes through the flower-bulb fields.
Cycle along the Tulips
The millions of bicycles in Holland are another trademark. Therefore, what better way to enjoy the lovely fragrances, the local culture and being part of this colorful landscape than to cycle through it? While marveling at the unique views, the winding routes through the fields take you from the historic town of Leiden to the beautiful city of Haarlem. A visit to the world-famous Keukenhof will give you plenty opportunities to take that beautiful shot.
Keukenhof is an unforgettable experience for people of all ages. The historic park with more than 2700 trees covers an area of thirty-two hectares, full of tulips, hyacinths, daffodils and all the other spring bulbs. The floral displays in the park and the unique flower shows in the various pavilions are a glorious visual feast. The world famous Keukenhof Gardens in Lisse are opened from mid-March until mid-May.
