Bollenstreek

Teylingen

In the heart of the bustling Randstad metropolis, nestled between the major cities of Amsterdam and The Hague, you’ll find an oasis of space and tranquillity in the Municipality of Teylingen (with the towns of Voorhout, Sassenheim and Warmont). It’s a place where the horizon is marked by traditional windmills and the silhouettes of centuries-old villages. A place where you can take endless walks and bicycle tours. The lakes of the Kagerplassen, with its many small islands, are a summer paradise for water sports enthusiasts and a winter wonderland for ice-skating aficionados. For those who love nature, Teylingen offers an abundance of choice. For instance, an official quiet sanctuary in Warmont, the centuries old woods of country estate Huys te Warmont, the endless polders surrounding the Kagerplassen, a park in the heart of Sassenheim, or a historical herb garden in Voorhout: Teylingen has it all. Great food, shopping and entertainment all come together with the local hospitality. You can enjoy a night of variety with cabaret, theatre and musical performances in two theatres. There’s also plenty to do for the kids, with numerous playgrounds, petting zoos and an indoor swimming pool. With its two train stations (Sassenheim and Voorhout), Teylingen is easily accessible and the ideal starting point for you to discover the wonderful bulb fields of the Bollenstreek.
