Colourful Dutch tulip fields 2012 edition, around Noordwijkerhout

One of the most colouful and fantastic ways to enjoy tulipland Holland in the second part of April is a walk/bike through the flower-bulb area...My favourite/secret place is Noordwijkerhout. Around this village every year the tulip and other flower bulbs paint the fields in amazing colour combination and nature masterpieces!
We even flew over the fields into picture above, have a look here:

Wow, tulips as far as the eyes can see! How lucky are you to see if from the ground and in the air.

Now I am officially going green with envy after looking at these fantastic images. A quick question, did the farmers allow anyone to visit the tulip field or do we need to pay for some entrance fee? And how long normally the tulip will last? Will it still be there in May?

Jana said...

@fiziskandarz: in the area around Lisse/Noordwijkerhout there is usually no problem at all to go into the tulip fields at all! No fences+no moaning farmers:) the official tulip time is the last 10 days of april and the first 5 of may (usually up to 5-6th of may), afterwards the farmers cut the blossoms;north of Amsterdam, around Lelystad may be the tulip fields stay a bit longer (till 10th of may); hope this helps:-)if not, ask me again:-)
