Gildemeesters Bollenstreek

Welcome to the website of Gildemeesters Bollenstreek. Mainly in spring the ‘Bollenstreek’ (bulb region) is a huge tourist attraction. With al the blooming flower fields and the flower parade, every year hundreds of thousands of tourists visit our region. The Bollenstreek is year-round worth a visit, with historic villages, sightseeing, shops and beautiful places to stay. As an extra incentive to explore the area, Stichting Gildemeesters Bollenstreek started the ‘GIANT TULIP BULBS’ art project in 2018.


Stichting Gildemeesters Bollenstreek started in 2018 the GIANT TULIP BULBS art bulbs. The man-sized artworks in the shape of a tulip bulb can be adopted by companies, municipalities, clubs, organizations or foundations and will be placed in the flower region between Leiden and Haarlem. Painted by recognized artists from the area. Bicycle routes starting from the Museum ‘De Zwarte Tulp’ in Lisse will lead people along all the bulbs. Providing color and attracting visitors year round.
