Busy roads in the Bollenstreek
I would like to start by informing you that the roads in the Bollenstreek will be incredibly busy and some will be closed at a certain point. It is therefore essential to leave for the stands on time. If the road has been closed you will no longer be able to access the stands.
Route to the stands in Sassenheim on Saturday 22 April 2018
From the direction of The Hague: take Exit 5 (Oosthout) off the A44, straight on at the roundabout, No. 52 is on your right after 200 metres.
From the direction of Amsterdam: take Exit 4 (Warmond) off the A44, then take the third exit on the roundabout, turn left at the traffic lights, No. 52 is on your left after 400 metres.
The route will be cordoned off from 11:45 onwards and from the direction of Amsterdam you will only be able to use the following route to reach the stands until 12:10:
Exit 6 (Noordwijk), turn right at the end of the slip road, take the first exit on the roundabout, follow this road, then turn left at the end, continue straight on at the roundabout, No. 52 will then be on your right after 200 metres.
Opening and closing times of the car park
The car park will be open from 10:00.
The car park closes at 16:00.
Make sure you bring your proof of parking, it will be checked at the entrance.
Information on the stands
Bring your ticket to the stands, it will be checked at the entrance. You will be issued with a wristband so you can leave the stands to take photographs. Please wear the wristband because we can only scan your ticket to the stands once. There is a catering outlet at the stands where you can purchase packed lunches, sodas and other treats.
Toilets have been set up near the stands that you may use for free.
Speaker and marching band
To ease the wait, a marching band will perform 30 minutes before the Bloemencorso passes. The speaker will announce the (luxury) floats in both English and Dutch.
The flower float parade will pass the stands at 12:15.
View the flower float parade at a standstill
The parade breaks for lunch in Sassenheim town centre, a short walk from the stands. You can then view and photograph the floats close up and at your leisure.
Should you have any questions on the day, there will be plenty of parade staff on hand to answer them.
