Traveling The Netherlands

Often an under-estimated travel destination, The Netherlands has a lot to offer. Charming old windmills, fields covered in thousands of tulips, and beautiful architecture, just to name a few reasons to visit this country.
Being the most low-lying country in Europe, 1/3 of The Netherlands is below sea level. That and strong winds making it a great destination for many water sports (and a pioneer in wind-energy)!

Tulips and windmills

One of the flattest countries in the world, The Netherlands boast lush green countryside, meeting a rugged coastline around its edges. During early summer, around April and May, the fields explode with colour – tulip season is here. And sprinkled across the country are over a thousand windmills, 19 of which are located at the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Kinderdijk.

Cities of beauty

The Netherlands are famous for one city in particular: Amsterdam. Charming cobblestone streets are winding between narrow houses and lazy flowing canals. It’s where Dutch Renaissance meets modern architecture, history meets today’s world.
