Relax in the Netherlands
There are many ways in which one can relax, and if you come to think of it this would kind of be the definition of a great vacation: relaxation and fun, both of which you will encounter when spending a holiday in the Netherlands. The country is vast and offers endless possibilities for all sorts of activities, yet as we probably all know it, the place is quite famous for its two-wheeled share of fun rides. Indeed bikes are very popular here and not for nothing: a holiday home in Friesland
would give you the perfect example of this as well as the perfect cycling experience with its wonderful network of cycling paths and the famous Eleven City cycling route with a length of over 200 km. If you're looking for a long-distance route, then the North Sea Trail will surely meet and actually surpass all your expectations.
This is though not the only way to relax when in the Netherlands. Kids and adults love theme parks, so the Walibi Holland is a must. Also, some of you might not be completely aware of the fact that this beautiful European country can spoil you with a beach holiday.
A fantastic seaside vacation
Despite the fact that the Netherlands is a densely populated country, the natural environment is strikingly beautiful, therefore a trip to the Wadden Islands will have you encounter unspoiled nature as well as some fantastic beaches, while on the North Sea Coast
activities like swimming, sunbathing, building sandcastles in the sun and practicing water sports will be part of your daily holiday routine. In Zeeland
, a provence also surrounded by water, there are some great opportunities for boat trips and relaxation at the beach, after all "Zomer in Zeeland" (summer in Zeeland) has been inspirational enough to become the name of a song, eluding how great the place is in summer.
Back this up with the traditional Dutch landscape of windmills, tulip bulb fields, fairy tale-like castles and historic sailing ships and you have the stuff that dream holidays are made of.
The country clearly has a very special cultural heritage, just considering the numerous museums, monuments, landmarks. When you say "museum" in the Netherlands all thoughts immediately target the famous Rembrandt Museum as well as the Van Gogh Museum in the Hoge Veluwe,
these are places that completely change one's take on the world of artists and unique masterpieces.
There are also famous castles and palaces like Het Loo, magnificent gardens including the 100+ year-old Wilhelminapark, and of course plenty of windmills (over 1,200). Don't limit yourself this holiday season. A holiday in Netherlands will turn out to be just what you need.
