If you want to head for Hoek Van Holland along the North Sea (by car!) there is a wonderful way which leads you to the place. Find the road-sign "Hoek van Holland" and, you'll pass the West-land. The Westland municipality covers almost 8 km Northsea coast.

This area got its second name "Glazen Region" (Area of Glass), because the inland is really famous for large glass houses where agriculture and horticulture have always been important (sometimes "green-houses" named). Already in 14th century there were products exported to England and, flowers and vegetables are exported all over the world.

Address: Westland, main road
