A warm welcome to our region!
Our region, “The flowerbulb region”, is widely renowned for its beautiful bulb and flower fields. With enormous effort and passion we care for our products every day. The magnificent bulbflowers you see in the fields, are our capital. Naturally we are proud of them and want everyone to enjoy them, but with respect. Walking in between the flowerbeds in the fields is forbidden, it can cause irreparable damage. Walking along the outside of the flowerbeds, is allowed. Do not enter the flowerbeds, enjoy and photograph them from the sidelines! Together we can achieve a beautiful and colourful flower season for everyone, and continue to enjoy our pride. On behalf of all the growers in the bulbflower region, we thank you. Do you specially want a lovely picture among the flowers?

From 10 August to 18 October you can enjoy the beautiful colours of the Dahlias.
The Dahlia has something special. The Dahlia is a flower that catches the eye. She has so many beautiful shapes and colors. Due to the long flowering time of the summer flowers we can enjoy them to the fullest.
Admire the colour splendour of more than 600 varieties of Dahlias at the Tulperij - an authentic flower farm. You can also pick your own bouquet to enjoy at home. In the garden of Keukenhof Castle there are as many as 100 varieties of dahlias in full bloom. Until mid-October, these popular flowers provide an overwhelming colour splendour on the historic estate. This makes it a wonderful place to enjoy a nice walk on the estate and the beautiful Dahlias in a historical setting. Go by bike along all the show gardens or book a tour at Renzy and go with an electric Twizy along these beautiful places.
This period is also the right time to buy and plant the new harvest tulip bulbs (and other spring flower bulbs).
