Tulips in Flevoland

By car, by bike or on foot

Spring! Time to admire the tulips in Flevoland. Various routes take you past the most beautiful spots, whether you go there by car, by bike or on foot. All kinds of fun activities are also organised at various tulip locations. Most of the tulip fields can be found in the Noordoostpolder, around Dronten, Lelystad and Zeewolde. The start and end dates of the Tulip Route Flevoland and the Tulip Festival Noordoostpolder depend on weather conditions and therefore vary every year, as do the routes. On this page, you will find information about the one in 2024.

Every spring, the Northeast Polder is dedicated to the Tulip Festival. During the festival, there is plenty to do.

Especially for children, a maze of tulip bulb crates has been created at the tulip festival location Renne Streekproducten in Nagele, while adventurers can take it higher with a helicopter flight over the tulip fields. A colourful view is guaranteed! If you prefer to stay with both feet on the ground, come to the creative market at the Tulip Experience Field in Creil on 27 and 28 April. Every day of the Tulip Festival, you can visit various locations for a bite to eat and a drink. These include a food truck at Renne Streekproducten and a Pop-up Grand Tulip Café at the Tulip Experience Field.

Tulip Island - Tulips on top of a tulip

Tulpeiland is a peninsula shaped like a tulip off the coast of Zeewolde. In honour of Zeewolde's 40th anniversary this year, thousands of tulip bulbs were planted on Tulpeiland late last year, so you can admire tulips on a tulip this spring. Especially from the air, for example with a drone, it will be a beautiful sight. And although Tulpeiland is not part of Tulip Route Flevoland, it is definitely worth a visit. There is a transient harbour with space for eighty boats and there will be facilities for tourism, catering and water sports. Tulpeiland is free to visit.
