Why Travel Netherlands?

 

The Netherlands is a country in north-western Europe with which every traveler falls in love with. Known for its flat landscape, canals, tulip fields, windmills and cycling routes, Netherlands is a travelers delight. Amsterdam, its capital, is home to the Rijksmuseum, Van Gogh Museum, the house where Jewish diarist Anne Frank hid during WWII and a red light district. The highest point in Netherlands, Vaalserberg, is only 323 meters above sea level. The rest of the nation is as flat as a pancake.

 

Speaking of Amsterdam—Holland's emblematic capital, the city brims with romance, culture and kicks. Take a candlelit cruise along the canals, lined with narrow-fronted buildings dating from the city's heyday as a trading centre, browse the paintings of the Dutch masters at the Rijksmuseum or join the punters prowling the alleyways of the Red Light District.

 

Alternatively take a trip to Arnhem in south-eastern Holland, take a glass-topped boat tour round Amsterdam's many waterways and harbour. It is an excellent way to see the city's most interesting areas. Another option is to take the Museum Boat which links most of the major cultural attractions or watch the skills of the porcelain makers at the Royal Delft pottery in the town of Delft, make a visit to the Dutch National Railway Museum or take a brief train ride from Amsterdam to Haarlem, which makes a serene alternative to the capital. It’s beautifully preserved historic core centers on the Grote Kerk, a magnificent Gothic church.

 

You could also take a trip to the Hoge Veluwe National Park near Arnhem, among whose attractions is an underground museum dedicated to subterranean life, and the Kröller-Müller Museum which contains 280 Van Gogh paintings as well as numerous other works. Not to be missed are the Wadden Islands—an island chain off the coast of Friesland.
