Motoring holidays in Netherlands, Driving Tips and Tourist Information for Netherlands
Everything for your holiday in Netherlands all on one site.
Netherlands is an excellent holiday destination, with particular appeal to families
and cyclists. It is a very safe country where people are courteous and helpful,
and many speak excellent English. It is easily reached from the UK, either by direct
ferry from Harwich to the Hook of Holland, or from Hull to Ijmuiden, which is just
a short drive from Amsterdam.
Amsterdam itself needs no promotion. The city is home to some of the World's
best art galleries and museums, notably the Van Gogh Museum and the Rijksmuseum.
Known as the Venice of the North, its canals are flanked by elegant old merchant
houses. And of course Amsterdam has a reputation for nightlife. Many other major
cities of the Netherlands are
worth a visit, amongst them Rotterdam with its modernist architecture, the capital,
the Hague and Delft, home of the famous pottery.
There are a number of National Parks in the Netherlands, great for cycling and
family camping holidays, and if you can make it to Holland while the Tulips are
in full bloom, it is a sight not to be forgotten.
