Much of the Netherlands’ appeal can be summed up in the offerings of its most iconic city – Amsterdam. The countries’ capital is one of the most toured places in all of Europe, welcoming travellers from all over the world. Visitors to the city can expect an escape from convention, as they immerse themselves in a city of utter liberality. Amsterdam is a place of cultural, artistic and historic significance. It is home to the world-renowned Van Gogh Museum and Rijksmuseum. It is also home to the famous dwelling of the infamous Jewish diarist, Anne Frank, whose remarkable story of life in the second Great War has inspired pilgrims from every corner of the Earth.
The extraordinary tulip fields of the Netherlands. If they were permanent, they’d be considered a natural wonder. From early March to mid May, part of the country is transformed as acres of flowers of every shade, of every colour, burst from the flat landscape of the country. It starts with crocus season in March, which is followed by daffodils and hyacinths until, finally, the infamous tulips emerge in April and stick around until mid May. Most tulip farms in the Netherlands can be found in Noordoostpolder, Flevoland. The Keukenhof, referred to as the biggest flower show in the world, is famous for its stunning display of tulips and is just a 30 minutes from Amsterdam.
