NORTH SEA COAST
Dunes, polders, woods, beaches and sea, the North Sea coast has it all. There are beautiful old cities like Haarlem, Leiden and Alkmaar to visit and little charming villages like Bergen, Katwijk and Scheveningen.
OLD HISTORIC CITY CENTERS
Holland is known for possessing some great still intact historic town centers, mostly built in the 16th and 17th century (Dutch Golden Age). The historic centers of Amsterdam, Utrecht, Gouda, The Hague, Leiden, Haarlem and other cities are all reachable by bike and are well worth a visit during your stay.
Zeeland is the ideal Island-hopping place, a region with the most sun of Holland, sand and sea. Also a unique nature combination of saltwater and freshwater. Easy to combine with a city trip to Rotterdam.
The history of the Zuiderzee – now known as the IJsselmeer – is closely entwined with that of maritime shipping and fishing. There is water in abundance, in the shape of harbours, dikes and steam pumping stations but also rivers and lakes. Combine with a visit to Amsterdam, Holland’s cosmopolitan capital, where the past and the present are in perfect balance.
