Bloemendagen Limmen

Limmen is a village in the Castricum district of the province of North Holland. It is one of the oldest villages in this region and has a population of about 7000.

At the beginning of the 20th century, due to its sandy soil and good infrastructure, Limmen became the centre  for flower bulb production in the area.

The ‘Bloemendagen’ are an annual spring attraction organised in Limmen. This all began around 1950 with a number of creative minded growers starting to make artefacts made of flowers. The flowers themselves were seen principally as a waste product and by picking them the bulbs continue growing and bring in more money. The ‘bloemendagen’ have slowly grown into an event with national recognition and numerous participants.

In contrast to  other villages in the region, there is no central showground, the many individual objects being exhibited along a pre-established route. This route is about 9 kms in length and can be followed on foot, on a bicycle or by car. During the opening weekend of 06/05 – 07/05 there will be additional attractions along the route with various activities also taking place in the centre of the village including an exhibition of old crafts and a display of old vehicles.

The ‘Bloemendagen’ will be held this year from 06/05 up to and including 10/05 2017.

This is the first time the date is set to a fixed date so you will be able to plan your trip way up front in the future.

Entrance is free.
