The Netherlands

The Netherlands, its name literally meaning “Lower Countries”, is aptly named due to its flat landscape. Its canals, tulip fields and windmills are the dominant features of the countryside and cycling is hugely popular with numerous routes to be found in such ideal surroundings.

Amsterdam, the capital, is home to many museums and also the house where Jewish diarist Anne Frank hid during WWII. The city also has a wealth of mansions nestling alongside the canals, best seen when taking a cruise. Visitors will find a unique atmosphere in the city due to the intimacy of the buildings, streets and an abundance of small squares which bisect the city in a way that is quite distinctive. A famous sight and well worth a visit is the flower market which is unique with all the produce being displayed on floating barges, a remnant from the days when the flowers and plants arrived on the canal.
