Respect our pride!

If you are standing at the edge of such a colourful sea of flowers, you might be tempted to step in. However, we strongly urge you not to walk into the fields. The flowers and bulbs are easily damaged. Plant diseases and pests are also spread unnoticed. And that means considerable losses for the growers. So take your best flower photo or selfie at the edge of the field!

Would you like to take a photo among the flowers? Then visit one of the locations specially organised for it.

Bulbs and art

In Museum De Zwarte Tulp, you will discover the multifaceted story of the bulb culture: its centuries-old history, working the land with its seasonal rhythm, scientific research, export and tourist promotion. The museum also shows how artists have been inspired by bulbous plants throughout the centuries - and still are - to produce work of exceptional beauty.

The museum is housed in a building in the centre of Lisse that once served as a bulb depot.
