Theme Giant bulb – Hiking

On this bulb you see junction 14, a part of the hiking network in the bulb region. It is one of the most beautiful spots in our bulb region, which you can explore not only by bike, but also on foot. The bulb region is a unique area. Everything the Netherlands has to offer, you can find it in this little peace of Holland. Wide beaches, spectacular dunes, beautiful landscapes met the colorful bulb fields. This ‘Hiking Network’ (Wandelnetwerk Bollenstreek) contains  100 kilometer signposted paths. The route mostly runs on paved paths, but also goes over meadows and bulb land. Nature is still close by, you will see plants and flowers and there you can hear the birds singing. To give you a helping hand, crossings and bridges have been made in the country. Adventurous pull ferries provide the crossing in a number of places. The Hiking Network works with a node system. At various starting points and along the routes there are signs with the route maps, the junction and area information. Along the way, the numbered posts point the way from junction to junction. You can walk from junction to junction or plan your route in advance. This way you decide how long you want to be on the road. Feel free to try out a route. Have fun hiking!

On this bulb Lisette used the technique of collage. The human beings you see have not been painted but made out of pieces of paper. When you come closer, you discover all kinds of photos and text, related to the Bollenstreek (bulb region). Stories about the villages, the musea (LAM lisse, museum de Zwarte Tulp) and other tourist attractions like Kasteel Keukenhof. And ofcourse you can see a lot of pictures of flowers. This bulb tells you a story if you look closely enough!
