Pick and taste!

Everyone knows the region around Hillegom and Lisse for its flowers. Along the side of the road, you will see charming flower stalls with fresh flowers from the field or from greenhouses. But you will also find delicious local produce. Juicy apples and shiny red cherries from the orchards, a juicy piece of organic meat from the farm shops or a nice fresh potato from the vending machine. 

Pay a visit to a fruit farm, grower or farm shop to see what they are all about.

Pick your own flowers

The Bulb Dune Region is well known for its flowers! And it is not only in spring that you can enjoy fields of colourful flowers. Various types of summer flowers bloom until well into the autumn. It's no coincidence that we love this region so much. 

In the various picking gardens in the area, you can go into the field armed with scissors to pick your own bouquet. A delightful outdoor activity in beautiful surroundings where you can completely unwind and go home with a beautiful bunch of flowers!

Besides the picking gardens, you will also find stalls along the side of the road selling flowers straight from the grower.

Local and regional produce

  • To the orchard

    Harvesting your own apples and pears is a great activity for the whole family. Go into the orchard or the picking garden together and pick the tastiest seasonal fruit, and of course browse around in the estate shops.
