Totally Dutch! Enjoy the bulb fields and the beautiful Dutch beaches. Enjoy the cozy Callantsoog along the way and your day out is complete!

Callantsoog
Your route starts at Juttersmuseum Callantsoog, a museum with special collections of treasures found from the sea. After a nice cup of coffee with cake, put on your walking shoes. First you walk to the beach - the sea lures after such a special museum! Along the water you walk to the center of the cozy Callantsoog, with the beautiful Reformed Church from 1580. The beautifully finished tower dates from 1671.

Flower fields
Then you dive into the polder and discover the old dikes and quiet country roads behind the North Holland coast. In the spring there are plenty of tulips, daffodils and hyacinths in the bulb fields. It is so beautiful to walk here along meadow polders and colorful flower fields, you would almost forget how the water was fought here. After a cup of coffee at the cozy Princen Keet you walk back to your starting point.
