The Kingdom of the Netherlands is made up of the Netherlands and the Caribbean islands: Aruba, Curaçao and Sint Maarten. The country has a coastline of 451 kilometers out to the North Sea and with Amsterdam as the official capital, while Haag houses the government.
If you think of Holland, tulips, windmills and clogs will definitely appear as some of the first things. The Netherlands, however, has much more to offer. Take a walk along the Dutch coast. Experience the amazing works of art at the Van Gogh Museum or Rijksmuseum. Taste the delicious cheeses - Gouda and Maasdammer. Sail around the charming canals or see Amsterdam on a bicycle. The Netherlands is a large cycling nation and therefore also has more than 37.000 km of cycle paths throughout the country.
A river cruise on a number of the smaller rivers could be a relaxing way to experience Holland.
