Bollenstreek, The Netherlands

3 May 2018

A walk through the famous Dutch "bollenstreek" (flower bulb region), from Lisse to the Hillegom train station. Many of the flowers had already been cut unfortunately, but luckily there were still some fields standing here and there.

The Keukenhof castle. This is actually outside of the main Keukenhof flower park, which is way too busy and artificial (needless to say I didn't go inside the park). This lovely castle is just on the other side of the main road though, but nobody was there. Amazing...

The Leidsevaart.

And ending in typical Dutch style, with orange tulips...

The walk.
