The Dutch village of Kaag (also called De Kaag) is in South Holland, a province of the Netherlands. It is one of ten small towns and five hamlets that make up the municipality of Kaag en Braassem. De Kaag is on an island called Kagereiland in the Kagerplassen (Kaag Lakes) system. It is the only inhabited island in the lake system. Visitors who want to stay in budget hotels in Kaag must take a ferry from Buitenkaag. The village dates back to at least 1308, and has fewer than 400 inhabitants. People come to this area for boating, fishing, watersports, hiking, cycling and camping. Boterhuiseiland (Butter House Island) has a camp ground for the Kaag Lakes Sea Scouts.
Kaag is part of the Duin-en Bollenstreek (Dune and Bulb region). This is the heart of historical Holland, the land of canals and windmills. It is known for its coastal dunes and for the cultivation of flower bulbs. When the bulb fields are in bloom the discount hotels in Kaag and surrounding communities fill up fast as thousands of tourists come to see the blaze of colors. There are flower parades with beautiful floral floats and brilliantly decorated cars. There are two castles in this area, Huys Dever and Slot Teylingen. Visitors can also see several grand manor houses. Among the fascinating museums are Panorama Tulipland, De Zwarte Tulp, Katwijk Museum, and Museum Oud-Noorwijk. You are within easy reach of Leiden, known for its historic walls, university, and vibrant night life.
