This route takes you through the tulip fields of the Bulb and Dune region. In springtime the flowering bulbs form coloured stripes in the landscape. Highlight of the route is the Keukenhof, the world famous flower garden.

This route is all about seeing the tulip fields in flower, which is roughly from the end of March to the beginning of May. To have the best chance of seeing a good display of flowers, we recommend doing this route in the second half of April. If you’re in Holland outside the bulb season, we suggest you try one of our other routes in the area.

The Keukenhof is now closed. The flower gardens will be open again from 21 March to 19 May 2019.

Review of the Limes Cycle Route

Summer 2014 we cycled the Dutch section of the Limes Cycle Route which follows the northern border of the Roman Empire. How much can you still see of this Roman history? And is the guide book any use if you don't understand Dutch?
