In the bulb region The Bollenstreek, tourists will find a particularly wide spectrum of attractions. The artist Kees Putman has painted on this Giant Tulip Bulb a collage of everything the bulb region offers. You will not find a combination of all these options anywhere else.
The European Space Research and Technology Center, ESTEC, located between Noordwijk and Katwijk, offers tourists with its Space Expo a museum of space history. Especially for children there are educational and entertaining workshops. The beautiful dune landscape has a wealth of flora and fauna and it is ideal for walks, cycling and horse riding. The Bollenstreek has beautiful polders, ditches and traditional Dutch windmills and extensive bicycle paths. Through the Jan Verweij visitor center, tourists can prepare themselves for spotting many different types of birds, which live in the polders and the dunes. On the lakes, such as the Kagerplassen, it is excellent sailing along always changing farmlandscapes where Dutch cows are grazing and ruminating. The wide beach on the edge of the Bollenstreek is one of the cleanest beaches where you can relax in a wonderful way.
