Enjoy the Tulip Fields of Flevoland
Starting April 14th, 2018
Enjoy the beautiful colours of the tulip fields and discover our exceptional countryside via the Tulip Route Flevoland. You’ll be amazed at the nature-filled areas that have emerged from the former seabed, and impressed by our farming land which is the most fertile in Europe.
Farmers around Dronten, Lelystad and Zeewolde have been busy since October to make this colourful paradise of flowers appear in spring. This is not only an investment of time and care — it is a true labor of love.
The theme of the Tulip Route Flevoland 2018 is the 100 year anniversary of the Zuiderzee-Act. 100 years ago, the Zuiderzee-Act was signed: the Zuiderzee Works, a Dutch engineering system of dikes and water drainage works, enabled the Dutch to reclaim land from the sea. The country now looks fundamentally different than it did 100 years ago. Clear examples of this are the taming of the wild Zuiderzee, the Enclosure Dam (Afsluitdijk) and the creation of new land by turning the Wieringermeer, Noordoostpolder and Oostelijk- and Zuidelijk Flevoland into polders.
See you next year
The weather in April is unpredictable, and so is the growth of tulips. We can’t guarantee that every tulip will flourish and bloom at the same time, but we promise that our walking-, biking- and driving routes will be just as pretty as in previous years, and that there will be plenty of activities for you to enjoy.
During these three weeks our colourful walking-, biking- and driving routes will be signposted and various activities will be organised along the route. One of our objectives is to promote the countryside of Flevoland. This area is only 50 years old and is getting more characteristic by the day. This is something we would love to help you discover for yourself!
You can participate in a painting workshop, let farmers show you how tulips grow and pick your own bouquet in a flower-picking garden. The Tulip Route Flevoland is a unique experience for young and old. Curious about all activities and routes?
Keep an eye on this website, Facebook, Twitter and/or Instagram. You can also register for our newsletter (currently available in Dutch).
