What to do in the Netherlands
The Netherlands is a top tourist destination in Europe. It’s a modern European country known for its liberal approach to life and also as the home to famous painters, windmills, clogs, and stunning flatlands.
It may be a small country, but the Netherlands’ welcoming attitude and many sights make it a unique destination for travellers around the world. So you should add it to your Euro trip too.
We know you’ve heard of Amsterdam, but the Netherlands has many cities and town that you’ll find interesting. The historic Leiden has three national museums for you to spend hours in. Retrace the past and see the impressive medieval city of Maastricht.
Rotterdam also has a vibrant art scene, and a pretty good nightlife. But if you want to rave until morning, Groningen is waiting for you.
To see the classic Dutch windmills, take your camera to Kinderdijk. If you want to add clogs and wooden house to your photos, then the Waterland and Zaan regions are your best bet. Of course, you shouldn’t miss the gorgeous flower fields at Keukenhof, where it welcomes over 800,000 visitors during spring.
Finish your holiday in the Netherlands and head to Amsterdam. You can see the works of Van Gogh and visit the House of Anne Frank. Spend your Euros on some beautiful bloemen at Bloemenmarkt – the world’s only floating flower market. Then experience a lovely canal tour at The Jordaan. Day or night, touring the canals of Amsterdam is a treat. Lastly, you can’t really say you’ve seen all the city has to offer without stopping by the “red light district”.
When to visit the Netherlands
The Netherlands have a mild climate so you can enjoy cool summers and pleasant winters. Rain falls monthly in the country, so the best time for you to visit is from May to September.
Australians can visit the Netherlands with no visa, but make sure your passport is valid for at least six months from your planned returned date to Australia.
Travelling to and around the Netherlands
You can reach the Netherlands when you fly to Amsterdam and land at Schiphol Airport - the only airport in the country. You can explore the rest of the country by bus, high speed trains, and boats.
Start wandering within the cities and regions by train, taxi, bus, tram, and metro. You can even travel by thumb where you ride with a local from the country’s hitchhiking stops called “liftershalte”. You might even get great tips from them about the country, and they usually don’t expect you to pay either. Isn’t that cool? But you might want to try that after doing some research or when you return to the Netherlands.
