bicycle tour with local guide

The flowering period will be in the Bollenstreek from 21 March to 19 May 2019. The flower fields bloom until the beginning of May.

During this period you can enjoy the blooming flowers in Keukenhof and at flower attractions such as Annemieke’s Pluktuin and Bollenburcht. We have developed a nice new cycle route where you will pass many beautiful viewpoints on the flower fields. The cycle route uses the recently renewed cycle junction network in the Bollenstreek. You can easily cycle from number to number. At most junctions you will find a large cycling map on which you can see exactly where you are. The cycle route is 30 kilometers long (approximately 2 hours of cycling). There is also time to undertake fun activities and there are plenty of them.
