Holland: flat out delightful

Netherlands Destinations

The Netherlands Your Way

Couples
 
Pick out some unique wedding china in Delft, home of Holland’s famous Blue pottery, or Delftware. A romantic town full of quaint churches and pretty canals, Delft is also Vermeer’s birthplace, the painter who created Girl with a Pearl Earring.
Prepare for an afternoon picnic together by heading first to the Alkmaar Cheese Market, where displays of world-class cheese are tended to by traditionally garbed vendors. Performances demonstrating how cheese rounds were once carried and inspected before sale are real crowd pleasers.
Family playgrounds
 
One of the most recognizable children’s book characters in the world, Miffy is one of Holland’s cutest exports. The Dick Bruna House in Utrecht is dedicated to the little rabbit and her creator.
Not only is Efteling Holland’s largest and best-known theme park, it’s also one of the world’s oldest, dating back to 1952. Made up of four themed areas—the Fairy Realm, the Adventure Realm, the Alternative Realm, and the Travel Realm—it’s fun for the whole family.
Travelling with friends
 
Spend the day with your friends exploring the heath, sand dunes and woodlands of Hoge Veluwe National Park. Ride around on the free bikes, and keep your eyes open for deer, wild boar and foxes before checking out some lesser-known Van Goghs at the Kröller- Müller Museum. The largest and most prestigious of its kind in Holland, the Rijksmuseum is an Amsterdam must-see attraction tourists love. From Rembrandt to Hals, it houses over 400 masterpieces from the Dutch Golden Age.

Queen Beatrix abdicated on April 30, 2013, so King’s Day was celebrated for the first time on April 27, 2014 in honour of her son Wilhelm-Alexander’s birthday. During King’s Day, boats filled with people wearing orange clothing and makeup (in honour of the royal family, descendants of the House of Orange-Nassau) cruise along the canals.
