Country guide


You must visit Amsterdam and cycle along the famous canals. Stop in museums and go south to Rotterdam, characterized by its post-war architecture. Then what do you think about taking a train to La Hague or to Groningen to experience the lively student city? Go to Maastricht and visit this cosmopolitan city surrounding by hilly landscapes.


Rent a bike to cycle and to have a breath of fresh air through green fields, swim in sparkling lakes and explore the northern provinces of Netherlands boarding a train to Overijssel or Drenthe. Enjoy skating as all the inhabitants do as soon as the climate allows it.

Take Home

Take a train to reach Vermeer’s hometown, Delft, and while you are visiting, buy some blue ceramics. Bring back some clog shoes from the biggest factory of Netherland, in Beltrum. You can’t come back without some Gouda or Edam cheese. If you stay in Keukenhof, flower bulbs can be a pleasant gift.

Eat & Drink

In those Northern lands, raw herring is quite a traditional food. Pannekoekenhuis (pancake houses) are all over the place, and the typical “brown” cafés as well. Try the beer and order some bitterballen (croquettes), except if you are on a diet…

New Perspective

Travel by train to Friesland Province, a southwestern province of Netherlands, and choose to stay at Stavoren’s De Vrouwe van hotel, there you will be surprised by what can be done with enormous wine casks…
