The gate to the Dune and Flowerbulb Region

Hillegom is the most northern town of the Bulb Region. If you want to learn more about this beautiful flower region, you should start your discovery here. With the beach and many other nature- and recreation areas at cycling distance, it has a quiet, rural atmosphere.

The town has an open-air swimming pool, a paintball centre, the first drift trike track in the Netherlands, picking gardens and an excellent shopping centre. It is a village with a rich history. The village pump and the adjacent Hof tell the story of the ancestors of the current lord of Hillegom, Jan Six.
