Places to visit in the Netherlands
Blessed with a clutch of highly walkable cities, the Netherlands has plenty of places to visit that give you a chance to delve deeper into its history and culture. Our specialists can use their first-hand knowledge to help you decide which places to make a beeline for on your trip, depending on your interests. You might want to wander the canal-cut streets of Amsterdam, lined with grand 17th-century townhouses from the Dutch Golden Age. Take in the more modern skyline of Rotterdam by boat, a city forced to reinvent itself after the war. Or explore the political and historical sights of the Hague. We can also help you discover quieter cities, like Utrecht with its huge cathedral tower and gabled canal houses, and Maastricht’s medieval caves, tunnels and castle ruins.
A country that blends a rich history with cultural and artistic innovation, the Netherlands offers a diverse range of attractions and experiences from Amsterdam’s canals and gabled houses to windmills and tulips fields, and world-class museums celebrating the Dutch Masters.
