Best cities to visit in the Netherlands

  • Amsterdam: The capital city of The Netherlands, Amsterdam is bursting with charm and cultural beauty. A city of tall, slim gabled buildings, canals and bridges is waiting for you to explore. Take a trip on one of the canals to enjoy the sights from the water or wander through cobbled streets. Immerse yourself in art and history by visiting the Van Gogh Museum or the house of Anne Frank.  
  • Leiden: Just a short distance from Amsterdam lies Leiden, the birthplace of Rembrandt and home to the oldest university in the Netherlands. Take a wander along the narrow streets lined with buildings dating back to the 17th century and stop at one of the many cafes and bars for refreshment. From here you can easily make the trip to the tulip fields – well worth a visit in spring.  
  • Utrecht: Another city based on a network of canals, Utrecht is one of the oldest cities in The Netherlands. Visit the medieval centre of the old town with the Domkerk Cathedral or head to the outskirts to see the Botanical Gardens that were established in the late 1630s and are part of Utrecht University. Make sure you pop into the Neo-Gothic De Haar Castle with its towers and turrets.  

Winter in 2021 in the Netherlands

Winter in The Netherlands can be cold and very snowy but provides the perfect opportunity to wrap up warmly and explore some of the museums in between stops for hot chocolate or coffee in one of the cafes on your travels. Go shopping in Maastricht with market stalls lining the streets for the festive season. Head out to the city of Groningen where you can sip mulled wine as you shop in the Christmas market or take in some of the live music performances that are put on at this time of year.
