Cycle along Amsterdam’s canals and through the Museum Quarter before heading south to Rotterdam’s post-war architecture. Take the Netherlands’ NS train to The Hague, travel north to Groningen’s lively student ambience or visit cosmopolitan Maastricht in the surprisingly hilly south.
Travel by train to the Netherlands’ northern provinces of Overijssel and Drenthe and cycle through verdant fields and swim in clear lakes. Walk on the seabed during low tide from the far northern mainland to the Waddeneilanden (West Frisian Islands). In freezing climes, skate along frozen canals.
Shop for vivid blue ceramics in Delft, Vermeer’s hometown, and browse the country’s biggest clog factory in Beltrum. Buy Dutch cheeses in Gouda and Edam and buy flower bulbs from Keukenhof.
Sample raw herring, stop by traditional pancake houses (pannekoekenhuis) or try patatje oorlog, chips in mayonnaise, ketchup, peanut sauce and onions. In traditional ‘brown’ cafés, order a beer with bitterballen, meat croquettes, or uitsmijter, an open fried egg, ham and cheese sandwich.
Book a train to The Netherland’s south-west Friesland province and stay at Stavoren’s De Vrouwe van hotel where four giant wine casks have been turned into en-suite hotel rooms.
