Fields full of brightly painted tulips, meandering canals and windmills turning sleepily beneath the sun – the Netherlands is one of the most culturally rich countries of Europe.
MUST-DO NETHERLANDS EXPERIENCES
Eurostar now connects London to Amsterdam with daily services, making the city even easier to include in a European itinerary. Stroll along picturesque canals lined with gabled houses with a mix of architecture and art to feed the most curiously cultural.
Cosy up in atmospheric coffee shops, watch boats glide down waterways and stay central in close proximity to all the sites such as Avenue Hotel. Another great starting point is staying at Radisson Blu Amsterdam surrounded by two canals and comprising a 19th century vicarage, 18th century merchant houses and a former factory.
Board a traditional barge and cruise the waterways to Bruges where highlights include Kinderdijk known for its impressive row of 19 large windmills, Dordrecht, one of the oldest towns in Holland.
