    Noordoostpolder - auto tour to the tulips

    by vtveen Updated May 3, 2012

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Netherlands is famous for its tulips and other bulbs. Everybody knows the Keukenhof and the so called 'Bloembollenstreek' (Bulb Region) in the western part of my country between Haarlem and Leiden.

    But there is a complete other way to see these wonderful flowers. In one of our polders, the 'Noordoostpolder' is the biggest area with tulips in the Netherlands. Late April/early May there are lots of activities around the blooming time of the tulips. Everywhere along the road you can buy some fresh tulips for a couple of euro's.

    We made the signposted car tour along the 'Bollenroute' (or 'Tulpenroute'); this is 100 km long route through the Noordoostpolder, which shows a lot of tulip fields. Besides it is more or less amazing if you realise the fact that you are driving on the bottom of a former sea.

    Along the route are a lot of interesting sites to make a stop, among them:
    - an information centre and show garden with hundreds of tulip species;
    - a huge orchid garden;
    - a garden where you can pick your own tulips (http://www.tulpenpluktuin.nl/).

    For directions, activities and a map see the website.

    The water, higher then the Flevoland

    by Pavlik_NL Written Jun 24, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    On the circle-dike that surrounds and protects the New Lands of our latest province shows what it all really is about. Best place to see it is near a "Gemaal", huge pumpingstations that pump the water from the lower canals in the polders over the dike into the IJssel- or Rand-lakes. Here you will find out that the water in this canals is considerably lower then the waterlevel in the lakes. Often around four or five meters difference.
    Driving over the dike the difference is not as visible, but one can see that this land actually shouldn't be there if nature would have it's way.

    Ringdike near Biddinghuizen.

    Visit the Batavia Wharf

    by carolineraat Written Sep 16, 2002

    On this wharf, the Batavia, a full-size replica of an East Indiaman, was built. It was done exactly in the old fashion, with the original materials.

    At the moment, another replica is being reconstructed

    More a "must do" activity for daredevils

    by Pavlik_NL Written Jun 25, 2003

    Sixflags Holland can be called rollercoatser capitol of Europe. Here, near Biddinghuizen in the Flevolpolders, this attractionparc full of rollercoaster and some other spectacular things to experience, is drawing many Dutch, but also other nationalities to have a day of ups and downs and lefts and rights.
    It used to be Walibi Flevo, but it was taken over a few years ago by the famous American rollercoaster-giant Sixflags as being the first of their parcs in Europe.
    Haven't been myself there yet, but ... when Ilja is bigger ... I'm afraid I too will have to shout out loud when going down (or up).

    Even from a distance you can hear the shouting

    All buildings are new, even the churches

    by Pavlik_NL Written Sep 21, 2003

    The fact that this land only excists for a few decades now, makes everything rather new. Buildings do not have monumental status or look historical in any way. This is quite strange for many, including myself. Roads in the polders are made so that they for a chessboard within the frame of the outer polder lines. Towns are growing however steadily and maybe once (long long from now) these churches will even have a historical view themselves. That is ... if the water doesn;t take back that what was taken from it by us Dutch.

    New newer newest ... no historical buildings here
