What Makes Holland a Great Tourist Destination?

The low-lying Kingdom of the Netherlands is not only well known for its cheese and windmills – this country, which is found in the western part of Europe, still has much more to offer to its tourists, and there are actually enough reasons why people keep coming back.

Here are some of the reasons why Holland is a great place to visit:

A Place Wealthy of Museums

If you are an art lover, you must visit Holland for it has several museums that will surely delight your eyes.  The Rijksmuseum is one of the museums that house the most complete painting collections in the world; this includes some famous works of Van Gogh, Rembrandt, Steen, and Vermeer.  However, if you are more attracted to modern arts, the Stedelijk Museum will satisfy you more.

The Windmills of Holland

There are many places to visit in Holland other than its windmills, but this doesn’t mean that is not a major attraction.  Get close to them and have your pictures taken in front of the windmills – this is the best way to appreciate it.

A Taste of Their Cheese

Holland is also known for cheese production. The city of Alkmaar organizes a cheese market every Friday from early morning to noon time.  In here, you’ll see and taste different kinds of cheeses, and if ever you will have a big purchase, there will be porters who are ready to assist you.

The Hoge De Veluwe National Park

This is one of the most frequented tourist spots in Holland because of its abundant forests.  You’ll find different animals, such as wild boar, mouflen and red as well as roe deer.  You can ride on a bus going to the train station of Appledom that will then lead you to the park.  From there, you will be given a bicycle that you’ll use to explore the park.

Rotterdam

Rotterdam is another place in Netherlands where you’ll find a great art museum, which is known as the Boymans van Beuningen Museum.

Amsterdam

This is the capital city of Netherland, which is famous for its very active nightlife, museums, shops, and a lot more.  This is, in other words, a place where the word “boring” is nowhere to be found.  You will enjoy the natural beauty of nature through its abundant gardens and parks and have a unique experience through its historical canals.  The Red Light District of Amsterdam is a great attraction as it displays the open-mindedness of people living here.
