It's hard to not want to travel to the Netherlands on your next getaway. It’s known as one of the happiest countries in the world—probably because of all its rich history and beautiful people! Netherlands holidays have become uber-popular in recent years, and it’s time to see why for yourself. Whether you want gorgeous gardens or eye candy of a different kind, this is one trip that’s sure to be scenic. Things to Do in the Netherlands
If you like museums, you're in luck. Some of the most popular museums in Amsterdam include the Anne Frank House, Van Gogh Museum and Rijksmuseum. To really get a full museum tour, check out Wotif’s Netherlands car hire options so you can travel to the Kröller-Müller Museum in Otterlo and the Mauritshuis Museum in The Hague. Unconfirmed rumour: English speakers get free admission if they can pronounce "Mauritshuis" on their first try.
If you go to Lisse, spend some time at Keukenhof, where you can tour a castle as well as a large flower garden (hint: The tulips start to bloom in April). And there are plenty more gardens and parks where that came from, including Oosterschelde, the country’s largest national park. With the right Netherlands holiday package, you can save some cash and spend a few extra days sightseeing instead. Shopping, Dining & Nightlife
Whether you want to spend your holiday touring the Netherlands' history or checking out its gardens, there is always shopping nearby. In Amsterdam, you can find one of the largest shopping malls inside the Amsterdam Main Post Office, a Neo-Gothic building constructed in the late 1800s. You can always say that you're learning about the country's architecture (not that you need an excuse to buy new clothes). If you're looking for the country’s best discounts, travel to Lelystad, where there’s a large outlet centre right on the shore of Markermeer Lake.
Your holiday to the Netherlands isn't complete until you take a tour of the food and drink. Many of the country's best restaurants are concentrated in Amsterdam's De Wallen neighbourhood; Rotterdam also has a thriving food scene. Other areas worth visiting for good meals include The Hague, Lelystad and Apeldorm. Wherever you end up, you’ll be chowing down on delicious dishes with funny names: chewy, cookie-like stroopwafels and crunchy, meat-filled bitterballen, for example.
If you enjoy a pint every now and then, make sure your Netherlands holiday includes a trip to a local brewery as well as a few bars. The Dutch are known for their commitment to crafting pale lagers, witbiers and bock beers. Cities known for their breweries include Enschede, Amsterdam, Lieshout and Bodegraven. And if kicking back with a beer is just the start of the night for you, you should definitely get down with Amsterdam’s legendary nightlife. What's Next?
