Picturesque dune landscapes, fantastically long sandy beaches, enchantingly colorful flowering fields and charming villages and towns form the perfect combination of coast and culture in Holland.

In the Randstad, Leiden and the coastal towns of Noordwijk, Katwijk and Wassenaar are not far apart. Perfect to enjoy the historical center of Leiden as well as the fresh air in the dunes on a bike tour and to visit many hot spots along the way.

For example, cycle along the Hollandse Duinen National Park. Along the way there are always nice stops like traditional and modern beach clubs or playgrounds for children. Hollandse Duinen National Park is more than just nature. This area is unique because of its proximity to the sea, its villages and towns, the precious nature in and around the dunes and the rich culture and history. Due to the mixture of natural and man-made landscapes, this area is so typically "Dutch".
