The Flora Garden has not only been set up for professionals, other interested parties are also very welcome. Next to the flower bulb field, a space has been set up where a film about flower bulb cultivation (in three languages) can be viewed. For example, after visiting the Flora Garden, guests can sit comfortably between flower bulbs to recover from the impressions while viewing the many types of flowering flower bulbs.

Lange Jaap lighthouse
* Lange Jaap: Lighthouse from 1878. Highest lighthouse in Europe (63.45 m), with 17 floors. Uniquely, the entire lighthouse is constructed from cast iron plates. This makes it 16-sided and extremely heavy. A total of 506.1 kg of cast iron was used. The designer is Q. Harder, former chief constructor of the pilotage's architectural service. De Lange Jaap is located a few hundred meters north of Fort Kijkduin, where the predecessor of this tower stood. The current lighthouse was given a glittering light in 1903, but this optic was destroyed at the beginning of the war. On September 2, 1949, the tower was given a new 1st-size optic (focal length 92 cm).
This lighthouse was the highest in the Netherlands for almost a hundred years. The newly built tower on the Maasvlakte has been higher since 1974.
