Description

The route from Lisse to the head of Bloemendaal goes past beautiful natural beauty. Depending on the time of year you will cycle past fragrant and coloring bulb fields in the spring and as soon as you get close to the dunes the landscape will change. You will cycle most of the route along the Amsterdamse Waterleidingduinen. You cannot enter the area by bike, but it is certainly worth dismounting and visiting. Discover the Amsterdam Waterleidingduinen. For example via one of the many beautiful walking routes. But roaming off the beaten path is possible almost anywhere! There is a good chance that you will come face to face with a fallow deer, fox or sand lizard or enjoy the song of the nightingale and there are also plenty of butterflies to see. When you continue the route you approach the Kopje van Bloemendaal, a 43 meter high dune top in Bloemendaal. A viewpoint is located on the dune from which the distant surroundings can be seen. This viewpoint was opened by Queen Wilhelmina in 1907, after raising the dune. In the Second World War, a bunker was built by the Germans, this bunker is currently a lookout tower. The lookout tower was completely restored in 2008. Also on the cup are a restaurant, a pancake house and the open air theater of Bloemendaal. Het Kopje borders the Kennemerduinen and the Caprera hiking park. The Kopje is a popular climb for cyclists because of the cobblestone pavement. If you think that the cup is a bit too much of a good thing, you can continue the route at junction 20 to junction 19 and pick up the route again from here. You are now cycling towards Zandvoort aan Zee, a seaside resort that thrives on tourism, but is also known for the Formula 1 race circuit, Circuit Park Zandvoort. From junction 79 you cycle through the dunes with the North Sea to your right and the Amsterdamse Waterleidingduinen to your left until Langevelderslag. Now the route will go inland again towards Lisse. Just before you cycle into the center you will pass Keukenhof Castle and its beautiful estate and the world-famous Keukenhof flower park. In the center you can reminisce about this beautiful route at one of the many catering establishments in Lisse!
