The Netherlands is known for its lively tradition, windmills and tulips, and fast-paced modern European life.
The Dutch people have a good sense of humour and know how to enjoy themselves, whether they are relaxing in the countryside or partying in the big cities.
Known as being a largely flat country, the Netherlands is an ideal destination for those who enjoy pursuits like cycling or walking without over-exerting themselves. But it is a cultured land as well, as the seemingly endless list of great Dutch artists testifies.
Amsterdam city breaks are very popular with tourists looking for great nightlife in the evenings and interesting and educational sights in the day time.
Check out the Scheepvaarmuseum shipping museum as well as the Spido, Euromast and Steamship Rotterdam.
A trip to Holland isn't complete without trying some Stroopwafel; this treacle waffle is a typical Dutch treat, best enjoyed with a cup of tea or coffee!
