More to see and to do

Katwijk is situated in the Duin- en Bollenstreek (Dune and Bulb region), a region in South Holland by the North Sea. It covers the Katwijk dune area and rural bulb-growing area around Sassenheim, Lisse, Voorhout, Noordwijk, Noordwijkerhout and Hillegom.

The area is urbanized to the south of the Bulb Region along the Oude Rijn (Leiden, Zoeterwoude-Rijndijk, Voorschoten and Oegstgeest). The Hollandse Plassengebied is located to the northeast of Leiden; an open area with many opportunities for water recreation.
