This Netherlands travel guide can help you plan your trip!
Every year on April 27th (April 26th if the 27th is a Sunday), the Dutch used to celebrate the birthday of their queen Juliana.
However, in 2013, Queen Beatrix passed the throne to her son, Willem Alexander and Queen’s Day became King’s Day.
There’s the famous canals, beautiful and historic houses, tons of parks, museums, foodie scene, art, coffeeshops, and, of course, the infamous red light district.
Rotterdam is one of the busiest shipping ports in all of the world.
You can rent white bicycles in three designated regions and hope you will never get lost in the sea of green.
One of the southernmost towns in the Netherlands, this city is famous for having the country’s only “mountain.” It’s really more of a hill though and doesn’t take long to climb.Hoge Veluwe National Park is the largest national reserve in the Netherlands.It is home not only for drift-sands, wild deer, and other animals but also to the Kröller-Müller Museum, the repository of Helene Kröller-Müller’s art collection.It’s a very historic city and filled with beautiful 17th-century buildings and parks.There’s a small museum in the city that has sporadic opening hours but if you’re nice, usually the owners let you roam through even if it’s closed.The Dutch practically perfected canal-building and it’s such an integral part of life here, that you can’t really understand the country until you spend time boating on the canals.Head to this small town and see where the Pilgrims lived before they left for America.The Hague is a hub of international life as it’s a center of European justice.You can see the Queen’s office here and visit the old castle and palace.It may not get all the attention Amsterdam does but this city is a great place to go if you want good shops, great architecture (though most of the old building were bombed in WW2), and a chance to learn about the famous harbor locks.Whether in Amsterdam or in another city, make sure you take a canal tour and see the canals that made the area famous and inhabitable.
