Iconic Sights Galore

There are many memorable things that spring to mind when you think of the Netherlands. One is tulips. The country is famous for its flourishing flower fields, bursting with tulips of all colours and stretching as far as the eye can see. They really are a sight to behold, and the best time to see them is in the spring months.

As well as tulips, the Netherlands is renowned for its windmills – it’s home to some of the biggest in the world! The reason the country has so many is that they were always needed for water drainage, given that around 26% of the country is below sea level (the word ‘Netherlands’ literally means ‘lower country’). Even so, the windmills have multiple uses – some even help with gin production. One of our favourite places to see these famous structures in action is at the UNESCO site, Kinderdijk.

A Cheese Lover's Paradise

Who doesn’t love cheese? When you’re on holiday in the Netherlands, you can treat your tastebuds to a whole host of divine Dutch cheeses. You’ll find market stalls offering everything from Gouda to Edam, and even museums dedicated to this dairy delight. The Netherlands exports hundreds of millions of tonnes of cheese each year, so you just know you’re going to taste the best of the best.

As well as delicious cheeses, you can sample a whole range of flavoursome food and drink on your trip to the Netherlands. Some of the country’s traditional dishes include poffertjes – little pancakes served with custard or melted butter – and bitterballen, which is a small meat-based snack that pairs perfectly with a crisp pint of beer. An ideal holiday combination!

Unique Attractions For Everyone

When it comes to filling your days with activities, you won’t have any trouble in the Netherlands. Some of our favourite things to do include taking a boat ride through Amsterdam which twists and turns through a network of canals, visiting one of many tulip gardens scattered across the country or wandering the impressive Markthal shopping mall in Rotterdam.

Those with a particular interest in art or history will love all Amsterdam has to offer. Some of the most popular attractions among tourists include the Van Gogh Museum, boasting the largest collection of works in the world from one of the most iconic artists in history, and the Anne Frank House, a museum which delves into the heart-breaking life of this Jewish wartime diarist. You’ll find there’s plenty to learn on your Dutch trip on top of all the fabulous sight-seeing, eating and drinking you’ll do.
