Where to go in Netherlands

Best Destinations in The Netherlands

Also known as Venice of the North, Amsterdam is a vibrant European capital that frequently hosts exciting festivals, an open-minded city that never sleeps where it’s next to impossible not to make new friends among the friendly locals. Amsterdam’s canal ring area is an engineering wonder, awarded UNESCO World Heritage Site status in 2010, while the Dutch capital is overflowing with art in its countless museums and art galleries. 

Yet there’s more to the Netherlands than its, undoubtedly, charming capital and we’ve handpicked for you the most authentic places to explore. The student city of Groningen is a sight for sore eyes with its beautiful buildings reflecting on the peaceful, almost still, canals. It’s also the perfect base from which to explore the country’s scenic North with its stunning countryside and wide white beaches. To the South, at the point where the Netherlands, Belgium, and Germany meet, Maastricht with its impressive architecture and authentic vibes is considered the most beautiful city in the Netherlands. Another destination not to be missed is Delft. Famous for its iconic blue and white pottery that dates back to the 1600s, Delft can be easily explored on a day trip from Amsterdam.

Cycling in The Netherlands

Since the 1890s, cycling has been an integral part of Dutch culture. The country’s flat landscapes and mild weather combined with excellent cycling infrastructure have led locals to choose cycling over driving both for their urban commuting and their trips to the countryside. Alongside locals, visitors also love the country’s cycling culture and traditions, so much so that the Netherlands is the top destination for cycling tourism. Thanks to cycling, the Netherlands is among the most eco-friendly countries in Europe. Fittingly we offer many tours and day trips by bike for you to enjoy and discover.

Delving into Dutch Art

In the years between 1620 and 1680, Dutch painting flourished. Prominent artists, such as Rembrandt and Vermeer, graced the world with their brilliance during the so-called Dutch Golden Age. Nowadays, 17th-century Dutch painting has a place to call home, and this is no other than the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam. But the history of Dutch art didn’t end there. In the 19th-century, Vincent Van Gogh was born in the Netherlands. The eye-opening Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam follows the life and works of the post-impressionist master. For a unique souvenir of your visit to the Netherlands, head to the town of  Delft. Famous for its iconic blue and white pottery that dates back to the 1600s, Delft can be easily explored on a day trip from Amsterdam.

Frequently Asked Questions about travel to Netherlands

What's the best way to get to the Netherlands?
Amsterdam's international airport, Schipol, is a major European hub so there are plenty of direct flights from the US and Canada. If you're already in Europe there are also many intra-European flight connections, and excellent road and rail links to neighboring countries.
When is the best time to visit the Netherlands?
One of the highlights of a visit to the Netherlands is seeing the tulips at Keukenhof. The season for this can begin as early as March. Visiting early means you'll avoid the crowds in April. However April might appeal for King's Day, possibly the largest street party in Europe celebrated all over the country. May through September sees pleasant to warm but not stifling weather. Autumnal hues take over in October. And if you're planning on spending much time outside, this is the last month we would advise visiting until spring rolls around again.
How many days do I need to see the Netherlands?
Much of the Netherlands can be reached by train quite quickly, so you could base yourself in Amsterdam and take day trips, so a week may be enough. However if you want to experience a smaller Dutch town or city we can plan a multi-destination trip to allow you dig deeper.
Which other nearby countries combine well with a trip to the Netherlands?
As part of the Benelux trio of countries, combining the Netherlands with Belgium and Luxembourg can make for a good multi-country trip. You could also pair the Netherlands with France. A high-speed train from Amsterdam to Paris takes just three and a half hours.
