The variety and the particular location make the Dutch Duin (Dutch Dune) popular with urbanites and its neighbors. In order to relax, play sports or enjoy the silence. One moment you cycle through the open dunes, the next moment through a dense forest. The Holland Dune runs from Scheveningen around Katwijk to over the wide north of Noordwijk. Outside the busy weekends and summer, it is quiet here. An oasis of calm.
A visit to Holland Dune is also beyond the summer a true pleasure. In the spring time, the nightingale and the stonechat fly back from the south. The latter likes to sit atop of a pole or bushes. The temperature rises quickly in the dunes. Therefore, the small bitter cress and the common whitlow grass already blossom in March. In the fall, the sallow thorn bears its striking berries. The moss is then beautifully. And in winter it is especially the quiet of the area that makes it so attractive.
