Rijnsburg & Katwijk
A beautiful flower village!
Vakantiepark Koningshof is situated next to the villages Rijnsburg and Katwijk. You can enjoy yourself here with shopping, cycling through the dunes or visit the light house of Katwijk.
When you think of Rijnsburg, you think of flowers! Every year, millions of flowers make their way across the world from the FloraHolland flower auction. Rijnsburg itself is also worthy of a visit. The roads around Rijnsburg travel along meadows, bulb fields and greenhouses, stunning villas and pretty gardens. The centre of Rijnsburg is traditionally Dutch, with an old canal, a museum, a nice shopping centre and not forgetting a windmill.
What is the first thing that comes to mind when you think of Katwijk? Probably fishing, while once this was the main source of income for the residents of Katwijk. The town still retains the characteristic atmosphere of days gone by, but these days Katwijk has a lot more to offer! Katwijk aan Zee is a cheerful seaside resort with a population of over 60.000 people and numerous facilities for its residents, as well as the many tourists who visit Katwijk. In the attractive, modern village centre, you will find well-known national chain stores as well as small local shops. This makes Katwijk worth visiting all year round!
There are plenty of things you can do in Katwijk: from walks in the dunes to sport events, from fireworks to Search and Rescue events. During summer there is a nice tourist market in the centre of Katwijk each Tuesday. On the second Saturday of August you can enjoy the passing of the flower parade of Rijnsburg.
