Holland as a tour and holiday destination
Holland, or the Netherlands, is a small country with a rich heritage, famous for its Dutch painters. Its size and laid back attitude make this country a must stay for any traveller.
Wander the canals of Amsterdam, or, better still, do as the locals do and see the city from the handlebars of a bike. Amsterdam is easy to walk around and always has something new to discover. Relax in a cafe next to the waterfront and people watch, or, if you are feeling daring, take a stroll through the Red Light District after dark, but be warned – it’s not for the faint hearted! Visit an art museum and explore the city’s more recent history with a tour of Anne Frank’s house.
Holland is well known for its tulips, so visit in the Spring to see Keukenhof, the world’s largest flower garden, in bloom. Other cities that are worth a visit are Utrecht, Delft and Maastricht, smaller towns full of old-world charm, where you can easily while away the hours.
