The villages of the Bollenstreek

The Bollenstreek is located in the middle of the Randstad between the cities of Amsterdam, Haarlem, Leiden and The Hague. A collection of cozy villages with a very rich history. The region is world-famous for its flower fields, but also the more than 18 kilometers long beach, the unique dune area and the Hollandse Plassen area are great tractors. For more than 500 years, the villages have been a location where the rich people of the surrounding towns set up their country houses and estates. The economy largely revolves around flower bulb cultivation, tourism & recreation, aerospace related industry and health institutions. Furthermore, the region is characterized by a very wide range of independent shopkeepers and restaurants.
