Netherlands

Netherlands

The Netherlands is known everywhere as a land of windmills, canals, and tulips, and today's visitors certainly will find these among its many tourist attractions. But along with the country's many breathtaking gardens and picturesque villages, those sightseeing here will also find the vibrant capital city of Amsterdam filled with museums showcasing a rich heritage of artists (think Rembrandt and Van Gogh). Other places to visit include numerous medieval castles and cityscapes, along with a 13,800-acre national park, and a tide control system that's been named one of the Seven Wonders of the Modern World.

Given the relatively small size of The Netherlands, all these attractions and fun things to do are within a relatively compact area, and the landscape is quite flat (the highest elevation is barely a thousand feet above sea level). Consequently, it’s extremely easy to do at least a little of your sightseeing the Dutch way: by bicycle. Many communities actively encourage the use of pedal-power and provide free bikes to explore the sights. Should you choose to see the Netherlands, you’re guaranteed a great time in one of the friendliest and most liberal cultures in Europe.
