Wind down the windows and take in the fresh smell of blooming flowers! Since three centuries the fields around Hillegom, Lisse, Sassenheim and Aalsmeer have been dominated by the incredible colors of thousands hyacinths, narcissi, daffodils, tulips and other flowers. By the end of March the flowers start bursting out of the soil and in the months April and May they are in fullest glory, so plan your visit in these periods. This route takes in the densest concentration of flower fields, charming Dutch countryside, scenic villages and tranquil beaches bordering the flower fields. Rated as Europe’s most beautiful spring garden, you might want to pull over at the Keukenhof, which is on this route.
