The Heart of the Bulb Region
The starting point of this route is in Noordwijkerhout. In the vicinity of Noordwijkerhout you will find the largest area of colorful bulb fields of the entire region and that is why the place is also called the'Heart of the Bulb Region\\\'. In Noordwijkerhout you can take a look at Het Witte Kerkje, a historic church in the center of Noordwijkerhout. Then you walk into the outskirts of Noordwijkerhout. Here you can enjoy one flower field after another with beautifully colorful flowers. Furthermore, you walk along the Oosterduinse lake. The lake was created by excavations of the former Oosterduinen in the 1950s and 1960s. The sand that was excavated was used by a sand-lime brick factory in the area.

Estate Sancta Maria
Then you walk back to Noordwijkerhout via De Zilk. You walk along the estate Sancta Maria. This estate is full of monumental trees and you can also enjoy impressive views.

The Zilk
De Zilk is a small village that is completely dominated by bulb cultivation and in particular hyacinth cultivation. Traditionally, the large bulb growers had their business in the'Kleine Zilk\\\' and the'Big Zilk\\\' was used as a residential area for the workers engaged in bulb cultivation. In April you will find all kinds of beautiful works of art made with hyacinth flowers along the roads, a special sight to see. You will also pass the De Dierenhoeve children's farm.
