The Keukenhof Gardens and the Keukenhof Castle are really the only things anyone ever comes to sightsee. Once someone does arrive, they are always surprised to find the lovely little Black Tulip Museum is worth visiting too. Of course, the gardens only really come alive for two months in the year (late March - late May), and there is another small flower season during September and October. If you arrive during any other time, you'll be wasting the trip. Still, the castle is open all year round, and travel guides will take you through it. The other tourist attractionis a reconstructed historical watermill to check out. And St. Agatha's church, one hundred years old, is a nice bit of architecture. Other than these, there is really not any other thing to do in Lisse. Most people only come for a day, returning to Amsterdam or the Amsterdam airport when finished with sightseeing.

This neo-Gothic church was built in 1903 by architect Jean Groenendael. It is a cruciform church, 60 metres high. The facade is made of red and yellow brick. Almost everything about it is more than a century old. The stained glass windows were applied in 1908. The organ was placed in 1913. Inside is some quite decent artwork - paintings and murals.
