Lisse is a town in the province of South Holland, is located in the Dune and Bulb Region and has around 22,000 inhabitants. In 2023, Lisse will have existed for no less than 850 years. The Bulb Region or Dune and Bulb Region is a region where much of the Dutch bulb cultivation takes place. It runs from Leiden to the area west of Haarlem.


Today, Lisse is a pleasant and lively village with many facilities that the entire area uses. With more than 40 restaurants and more than 130 shops, Lisse is very popular for a culinary visit or a day of shopping. Parking in Lisse is free, which is unique in the Randstad. Some parking spaces are indicated with a ' blue ' zone, these places have a maximum parking time of 2 hours (with a blue line on the ground ).

The Bulb Region is mainly famous for its tulips, but also for its crocuses, daffodils and hyacinths. During the flowering of the flower bulbs, this region is one of the most colorful in the world. After the crocuses, an overwhelming bloom of tulips, daffodils and hyacinths begins at the end of March and continues until May. In late summer, gladiolus, dahlias, carnations and asters provide a second attraction.

The border towns of the Bollenstreek are Voorhout, Sassenheim, Lisse, Hillegom, Bennebroek and southern Heemstede. The Dune Region runs near Noordwijk and Noordwijkerhout and reaches north to Vogelenzang. Part of the western Haarlemmermeer, around Zwaanshoek, can also be considered part of the Bulb Region.

The famous Keukenhof attracts around 800,000 visitors every year. The park was founded in 1949 and bulb plants from various horticultural companies in the bulb region are exhibited here every year in the spring. During that time, flower bulbs are sold along the side of the road. And of course we can't forget the Flower Parade. The Flower Parade Bollenstreek is the flower parade on the first Saturday after April 19, where the floats travel from Noordwijk aan Zee via Sassenheim, Lisse (over Het Vierkant), Hillegom, Bennebroek and Heemstede to Haarlem.

Noordwijk and Langevelderslag
Noordwijk is one of the most famous seaside resorts in the Netherlands and has a variety of restaurants, terraces, hotels and other entertainment venues. There are also many beautiful beach bars here and there is no less than 13 km of beach. You can get here in about 15 to 20 minutes by car. This is also a beautiful route by bike along the bulb fields and through the woods.

The trip to Langevelderslag takes you through the beautiful Hollandse Duinen National Park. Breathtaking dunes, untouched forests, secluded beaches, historic buildings and museums, and of course the local wildlife.

The wide coastal strip of Langevelderslag is a good, relaxing alternative to busy Zandvoort and Scheveningen. Langevelderslag is an undiscovered pearl of the North Sea, which mass tourism has not yet found.

This beach is slightly more remote compared to Noordwijk, but here too there are plenty of catering establishments, restaurants and activities for young and old.

The Kaag
The Kagerplassen water sports area is about a ten-minute drive from Restaurant De Vier Seasonen, between Amsterdam and Leiden. The village of Buitenkaag is located on the Kagerplassen at the southern tip of Haarlemmermeer and across the Ringvaart is the picturesque island of Kaag.

As soon as you cross the ferry, you will feel like you're in a different world. The many old buildings give the impression that time has stood still in this unique water sports village. The Kagerplassen are perfect for lovers of boating, sailing, canoeing, rowing, water skiing, skating and fishing.
