Flowers in Noordwijk

Spring in Noordwijk represents an explosion of colours and fragrances with the endless flowering bulb fields. Flowers stimulate our senses, they surprise and amaze us and make us feel happy. You can smell and see daffodils, hyacinths and tulips everywhere. Experience the scents and colours of the blooming flower fields, go for a walk, jump on your bike or 100% electric e-chopper.
Visit various flower attractions or flower events in the Dune and Flowerbulb Region.


What blooms where and when?

Of course you want to know where to admire the most beautiful flowering fields. The Flower Map is a handy online map with which you can effortlessly find the fields in the entire Dune and Flowerbulb Region. Recognisable icons help you find the locations and photos show what the fields look like at that moment.

So you can plan a nice cycling or walking tour or choose one of the many routes and set off. Of course, you can also rent a bike.

Enjoy the flowers. Respect our pride.

Enjoy the flowers, Respect our pride!

When you find yourself standing beside a brilliantly coloured flower field, it can be all too tempting to charge in amongst the flowers. Resist the urge! The flowers and bulbs are fragile, and if you have any plant diseases on your shoes you risk taking them in with you. This would be a pity for nature, but also a major loss for the growers. So enjoy the view, but please show respect for the flowers and grower: do not enter the fields without the grower’s express consent. Naturally, you can take as many photos as you like from beside the field. #respecttheflowers

Giant Tulip Bulbs Route

The Netherlands is famous for its tulips and the Bollenstreek for its bulb fields and the Flower Parade. The tulip has been a source of inspiration for artists worldwide. The Gildemeesters Bollenstreek Foundation started the art project 'GIANT TULIP BULBS' in 2018. 80 man-sized works of art in the shape of a tulip bulb are painted by various artists from the Bollenstreek, each with their own story and can be admired throughout the region between Leiden and Haarlem. This way we get a nice route that passes 80 Giant Bulbs. Come and cycle the Giant Bulbs Route.
