Flower fields and water
The first thing you think about when you hear Keukenhof area are tulips. Tulip and other spring flower fields. When you explore this Dutch region by bike you’ll soon discover the 18 km long coastline in the west and the huge lake area in the east. Follow the main canal south, pass by windmills and dairy farms and you’ll reach the lovely city of Leiden. Take a route north past estates, castles and countryside and you’ll end up in the historical city of Haarlem and eventually Amsterdam.
