Holidays to the Netherlands are all about exploring vibrant cities, seeing colourful tulip gardens, cycling around beautiful countryside and spending long evenings in candlelit cafes and classy clubs. Capture some culture in the capital of Amsterdam where you can roam 17th century canals, tick off world-class museums, relax in acres of parkland or swap city life for the coastline at IJburg beach. Adventure lovers can try banana boats, zip lining and power-boating at Rotterdam's Euromast and the popular seaside town of Scheveningen. Head to The Hague and rent a small boat so you can explore its canals and de Waterkant's gorgeous 'grassy terrace' before enjoying an evening stroll along its medieval streets. No trip is complete without a visit to the artificial island of Neeltje Jans – known as Holland's eighth wonder of the world. Netherlands holidays have endless opportunities to explore and it’s a prime location for a one-of-a-kind vacation.
If you are looking to experience the scintillating nightlife of the Netherlands, then head to Rotterdam, widely considered as Netherlands’ clubbing city, or try the many trendy bars and clubs of Rembrandt Square in Amsterdam's hip Jordaan district.
The best time to visit the Netherlands is in the months of April and May, when you can explore the gorgeous tulip gardens. Better still, visit Netherlands between March and May to experience the vivid colours of Keukenhof, the world's most famed tulip garden.
