Katwijk Cycling! through the bulb region

  • The Netherlands
  • South Holland
  • Katwijk
  • 42.64 km (Approximately 02:30 u)
  • Cycling route 142041
This cycling tour of about 40 km takes you past the most beautiful places and places of interest in our beautiful Bollenstreek. The route takes the participant along our beautiful North Sea coast and cuts through the dunes between Katwijk and Noordwijk and those between Noordwijk and Zandvoort. From the start you cycle on one of the most beautiful boulevards in the Netherlands. You have left the lighthouse behind and the next monument is already in sight, the white or old church. The church was built around 1640, after the previous church was destroyed by the Spaniards in 1572. The clock dates from 1594. Having arrived in Noordwijk after Katwijk, a visit to the Atlantic Wall Museum is highly recommended. That is a museum located in an old German ammunition bunker. The bunker is set up as an exhibition space where, among other things, more than 200 photos can be viewed. After a beautiful trip through the dunes and forests, we drink a cup of coffee or tea in the beach restaurant Nederzandt on the Langevelderslag, located in the dunes. When we leave Nederzandt we leave the dune landscape and enter the flower bulb fields. In the tour through the world-famous bulb fields, we visit the various cultural-historical places in the Bulb Region. We pass and if desired we visit the old train station of Lisse, a little further a visit can be made to Keukenhof Castle from 1642 and we pass the world-famous Keukenhof flower exhibition. Continuing our journey through the beautiful bulb fields, we arrive in Sassenheim at the Ruins of Teylingen from 1271. Leaving the ruins behind us, the journey then continues towards Voorhout and Rijnsburg. From there it is a few km\\\'s cycling along the Oude Rijn to the Uitwatering. Cycling from the Uitwatering, the finish at the second oldest lighthouse in the Netherlands, dating from 1628, is already in sight.

The ruin of Teylingen Castle is a round water castle dating back to the 13th century. Originally, there was only a ring wall here. Later the keep was added to it, followed by the rest of the castle. In the past, you would also find an extensive outer castle here in addition to the current castle. Today the castle is still surrounded by a wide moat, but not much remains of the castle itself. There is now only one body of the former castle.
