Netherlands ActivitiesPhysical activity for visitors to the Netherlands generally centres on walking or cycling. You can also take four person pedal boats along the canals or, on sufficiently cold days in winter, go ice skating on them, as captured in the paintings of Hendrick Avercamp. Many people choose to go sailing, either off the coast or on one of the country's many lakes.
Netherlands Food & DrinkWant to try traditional Dutch dishes when in the Netherlands? Number one is Hollandse Nieuwe, raw herring served with onions and gherkins. The country is also famed for its cheeses with Edam and Gouda the most popular - best served with freshly baked rye bread and smoked sausage! Looking for a local tipple? Try one of the bitter beers in juniper-infused gin, the local spirit.
Netherlands AttractionsWhile many of the Netherlands top attractions are clustered in it's capital city, Amsterdam - including the Rijksmuseum and Anne Frank's House - there are hidden gems to be discovered. Step inside Hertogenbosch' stunning cathedral, walk round The Hague and soak up its Gothic architecture or head out to the Frisian Islands and relax on the beautiful open beaches.
