NETHERLANDS TRAVEL GUIDE
Plan your trip to the Netherlands
Despite being a relatively small country, the Netherlands has many places to visit. Many of these places are below sea level. Other unique aspects about Dutch cities are the picturesque canals and brick houses. Not to mention the famous coffee shops.
The more rural areas in the country stand out for their incredible tulip fields and windmills. Many travelers only visit Amsterdam; however, there are other interesting cities and towns to visit. Being a small country, if you have enough time, it is a great idea to do a road trip around the country by car or public transport. By the way, don’t forget to try Edam and Gouda cheese!

PLACES TO VISIT IN THE NETHERLANDS
Tips for every destination
The capital of the Netherlands, Amsterdam, is the country’s main tourist attraction. It is a very unique and beautiful city. Amsterdam has very interesting museums, great food and can easily be discovered simply by walking. It is one of the most peaceful European capitals you can find in the continent. Do not miss it!
Some of the best places to visit in the Netherlands, other than Amsterdam, are Utrecht, Rotterdam, The Hague, Maastricht, Edam, Haarlem and Amersfoort. I also recommended visiting the Windmills of Kinderdijk and Bollenstreek. You’ll be able to see beautiful tulip fields.
Below you can find my published blog posts about the different areas in the Netherlands.
Amsterdam is a captivating and unique city. Its picturesque canals, parks, pedestrian streets and squares are some of the things that give this city its unique character. Tourists are drawn to the famous coffee shops and the red light district, which comes alive at night.
If you visit Amsterdam, don’t forget to visit Rijksmuseum, Anne Frank’s house, Vondelpark, Dam Square, the Van Gogh Museum and Amsterdam Central Station. You should walk through the canals of Amsterdam or tour the city by bike, like any other local. If you have several days, you can take a trip to the Zaanse Schans windmills.
Utrecht is often thought of as little Amsterdam. The architecture is very similar to that of Amsterdam. However, Utrecht is a much quieter city and less touristic. In my opinion, it is a city full of charming corners that are well worth visiting.
Some of the main places to see in Utrecht are the Utrecht Cathedral, Dom Tower, Oudegracht, the Botanical Garden of the University of Utrecht or the Cathedral of Saint Catherine. Castle de Haar is located just outside of Utrecht. The castle is a beautiful place worth visiting.
