The Netherlands is a small country with fantastic things to see and do. There are tulip fields and windmills, the canals of Amsterdam, amazing white sand beaches, charming towns, Delft Blue earthenware, bicycles galore, wooden shoes, renowned museums, and more water-management innovation than you could imagine. We’ve loved many visits to this beautiful country in Amsterdam, The Hague, Rotterdam, and most recently to Giethoorn and an unforgettable experience on the canals. Now is the time to start planning your visit. Keep reading for more travel information to this beautiful country.
We have traveled to the Netherlands many times, usually visiting Amsterdam, The Hague, and various cities within a day trip from those places. When we started traveling full-time, Giethoorn was on the list. Unfortunately, when we arrived in the spring, Old Man Winter was still hanging out. Thankfully, the hot chocolate was plentiful and delicious!
