Top 5 Things To Do In The Netherlands


The Netherlands is a small country with plenty to see. You can visit the most visited city in the world, Amsterdam, or explore the countryside and small towns. The history of this country goes back for many centuries and you can still see parts of this history in some buildings.

Top 5 Things To Do In The Netherlands


Amsterdam is a great city to visit. It’s also a great place to live, and it’s even better if you like the arts.

The Dutch capital has plenty of museums and galleries that feature everything from modern art to classical paintings. For example, there are over 100 museums in Amsterdam alone! If you’re into photography or film-making then don’t miss out on De Hallen (the halls), which hosts exhibitions at various locations throughout town including a former slaughterhouse turned into an exhibition space for contemporary artworks by artists from all over Europe as well as South America and Africa. And if your interests lie more with traditional Dutch culture then take advantage of free entrance days at Amsterdam’s most famous museum Rijksmuseum which houses masterpieces by Rembrandt van Rijn such as “Night Watch” (1642) or go see priceless artifacts from ancient Egypt at Van Gogh Museum where Vincent van Gogh lived during his final years before committing suicide due to depression caused by mental illness related symptoms caused by syphilis infection acquired during his younger years working as an artist in Parisian brothels frequented frequently visited by prostitutes who were infected with this sexually transmitted disease known today simply as “STD”.

The Hague

If you’re looking to learn more about the Netherlands’ rich history, The Hague is your best bet. This city is home to many museums and galleries, including Mauritshuis (which houses one of Rembrandt’s most famous works) and Gemeentemuseum Den Haag (a museum dedicated to modern art).

The Peace Palace is another UNESCO World Heritage site that can be found in The Hague. It was built in 1913 as an international court of justice for arbitration cases between countries or disputes between nations; today it serves as headquarters for the International Court of Justice.

The Binnenhof is also located here–this building has been used since 1346 as seat of government and palace for monarchs during times when they resided in Holland or Zeeland; today it serves as parliamentary offices for Dutch politicians during sessions at parliament house nearby!


Rotterdam is a mix of old and new. The city has a diverse population, with many different cultural groups living there. The city also has a lot of history, including its role in World War II and being one of the largest ports in Europe during that time period.

Rotterdam is also known for having some impressive modern architecture, such as the Erasmus Bridge (which features both suspension cables and piers), which crosses over the IJ river; both can be seen from afar! There are many museums located throughout Rotterdam that showcase Dutch art and culture such as Van Gogh Museum & Stedelijk Museum (both located next door).

In addition to these things to do when visiting Rotterdam there are many bars/restaurants where you can enjoy some delicious food after exploring this beautiful city at night hours only available on weekends between Friday afternoon until Monday morning!


Delft is a great place to visit if you’re looking for something different. It’s a city that has been around since the 14th century, and it’s known not only for its beautiful canal but also for its pottery industry.

The best part about going to Delft? You can see the entire city from one vantage point: from the top of an entire neighborhood called Delftse Bos (“Delft Forest”). This forested area is about an hour-and-a-half drive from Amsterdam where you’ll also find lots of nice restaurants and shops to explore. There’s even a funicular train system that will take you up into town for free!

Sint Maarten’s Grote Kerk, Haarlem

The Grote Kerk in Haarlem is a Gothic church built in the 13th century. It has an astronomical clock that dates back to 1552 and is considered one of the oldest in Europe. The church itself was added to UNESCO’s World Heritage List in 1996, due to its historical significance.

The Grote Kerk is open daily from 10am until 5pm (6pm on Sundays). Admission costs EUR 6 per adult; children under 12 get free admission!
