1) “I Amsterdam.”
The capital of Holland stands out from other European cities. It is one of the most beautiful European cities, and you should visit it as soon as possible.
There is something for everyone, from Anne Frank’s House to the Nine Streets Shopping Area to Rijksmuseum and Canal Belt. You’ll feel like you are in Venice by taking a boat trip on Amsterdam’s canals.
Also, this city is a hotspot for all culture enthusiasts, thanks to more-than-you-can-count museums and galleries, the Dekmantal Festival (June-August), and C.R.A.F.T. Festival (June). If you’re lucky enough, you’ll be there on King’s Day, April 27th, every year; you’ll enjoy the full glory of the city with vibrant street parties, markets, and other parties.
2) Take your time
It is well-known that Holland is the best country for cycling. Its flat terrain, mild climate, great roads, and short distances make it so.
The Netherlands is a top country for road safety. Cycling allows you to explore the best spots in Holland, many of which are not accessible to cars.
The Dutch paid great attention to their 30 000 km cycling system. It is so well-designed that cyclists can stay aware of the situation. This is your chance to experience this incredible experience.
3) Spend hours in the ‘strandpaviljoen
The Netherlands has many stunning beaches that draw thousands of tourists yearly, in addition to its beautiful landscapes and charming windmills. These beaches are great for sunbathing, swimming, and family activities.
Can you think of a better way to spend a day than at the beach, under the ‘strandpaviljoens’? Spend some time at Zandvoort beach, only 24 km from the capital.
Texel is a great choice for adventure travelers who love mud walks.
4) Feel modern in Rotterdam
Although it is still in the shadows of Amsterdam, Rotterdam has much to offer its visitors. The main attractions of Rotterdam are located around the harbor. The magnificent Euromast provides a stunning panoramic view of the city and the sea.
The Spido Harbour Tour, the Shipyard De Delft, and the iconic 800-m-long Erasmus Bridge are must-sees, especially at night.
Rotterdam is also known as a cultural capital. It boasts many museums and stunning architecture, both old-fashioned and modern. The shopping area in the city’s heart, which houses many historic homes that are now used as galleries and restaurants, is also first-class.
5) Take advantage of the Sinterklaas Time
It is known as Santa Claus by us, but it is called Sinterklaas by the Dutch. He brings presents to children in November when the country is overflowing with decorations and celebrations. You will find seasonal snacks and drinks in every shop, including special gingerbread cookies.
Parades are held in every town with children dressed up as Sinterklaas, his elves, and helpers. As if all that weren’t enough, the Dutch Sinterklaas is unique in another thing: he doesn’t come through a chimney; he arrives via boat. Many parties and events are held throughout the city to celebrate this amazing night.
6) The Netherlands is unique
Liberte-freedom is a term you may have heard. Europe is unique in its approach to individual rights. The right to live the life they choose is at the forefront of Europe’s society, provided their wishes don’t harm the lives of others (the principle of social ecology).
This is only possible for some because sometimes one person’s needs contradict those of the other. The Dutch did it. This isn’t a political slogan. It’s the truth of life. The Dutch are so ensconced in freedom of choice that they don’t even know how fortunate they are.
7) The Netherlands is the country that has the most colors
It’s not just. The majority of the Netherlands lies below sea level. Water, water, and more water. The Netherlands’ agricultural complex feed of s half of Europe and sells agricultural technology to the rest of the world. It is rare that people create a paradise on Earth and live there.
They are obsessed with alternative energy sources, ecology, agriculture, and other forms of sustainable energy. There are fields of tulips.
The Netherlands is known for many things, and you should visit it.
