The Netherlands, the country that it also known as Holland, is one of the favorite destinations of the Germans. With its more than 450 kilometers of coastline, the Netherlands offers interesting destinations on the North Sea coast. Everywhere on the coast you will easily find a holiday home or rent an apartment. Moreover, in the Netherlands you will find a countless number of holiday parks as well as campsites. Those who search for a little more comfort, can book a hotel.
Especially popular are the Dutch provinces of North and South Holland. It is not only because during the summer time beautiful beaches attract. Even at a low tide you will never find mud here as it is in the North Sea in German, only pure sand. At almost every beach in Holland you will be able to find the Strandpavillions where coffee, tea and typical Dutch pancakes are served.
Those, who need more than just a beach only, can explore the flat idyllic landscape behind the dike on a bike. The Netherlands is the land of the bicycle, countless cycle paths that are well tapped. You can book boat tours along the canals and ditches almost in every major city. The driving of boats in the Netherlands requires no special licence.
The capital of the Netherlands, the city of Amsterdam, is worth visiting at the weekend. Amsterdam is not only famous for its canals. A canal trip is an absolute must for a stay in the Netherlands. There are significant museums here such as the Anne Frank House, the Rijksmuseum and the Van Gogh Museum. On the way to beautiful cafes, bars and discotheques you should not miss your chance to visit the district Walletjes. It is also worth viewing.
