Things to do in the Netherlands

You can easily fill your free time in the Netherlands taking strolls along its canals, dropping into museums and galleries on a whim and watching daily life over a steaming cup of coffee. But, to help you really get to know the country, our specialists have chosen a selection of things to do in the Netherlands that delve deeper into its history and culture.

You could take a break from Rotterdam to visit Kinderdijk’s collection of 18th-century windmills. Paint your own Delft ceramic tile and learn more about the craft’s history in The Hague. Sample traditional Dutch delicacies on a walking tour of Amsterdam, from cheeses to poffertjes (sweet, fluffy pancakes). Or explore Utrecht’s split-level streets on foot and from its canals by glass-topped boat. Our specialists can also arrange for you to tour Amsterdam’s Jewish Quarter to learn more about life during World War II, or spend a day visiting traditional, canal-threaded villages.
