A TRIP TO
THE NETHERLANDS
by Jerry Shiveley
JerryShiveley.net
Seeing as the Netherlands is a small
country that only takes roughly three
hours to travel through by car, visitors
are able to see its highlights in
essentially one weekend.
Even if you only have a day to spare,
it’s well worth a visit.
CONTRASTS
The urban centers are known for their art collections and serene canals. Cozy
cafes and charming townhouses with gables exist gracefully among
innovative architecture that’s full of modern designs.
Outside the city, you can find endless dune-backed beaches, colorful tulip
fields, vast forests and charismatic windmills.

MUSEUMS
02
Highlights of this charming country
include the Rijksmuseum, Van Gogh
Museum, Stedelijk and the Anne Frank
house. All of these cultural attractions
are located in proximity of each other in
Amsterdam. The Rijksmuseum is full of
art dating back to the 17th century.
Van Gogh’s sunflower series and self-
portraits are housed at the museum that
bears his name. The Stedelijk is devoted
to modern art while the Anne Frank
house is known as the museum with a
story. Since the latter is a popular
destination, it’s recommended that you
book tours 60 days in advance.
MAIN CITIES
03
Besides the capital of Amsterdam, Den
Haag, Zwolle and Rotterdam attract
many visitors. Den Haag is also known
as the city of the sea, and those outside
the country often refer to it as the
Hague.
Take a boat through its canals, visit the
Peace Palace or relax on the
Scheveningen beach. The city is also
home to Parkpop, the biggest free music
festival in Europe.
BICYCLING
04
Seeing as the Dutch love
bicycling, you can find over
19,000 miles of dedicated cycle
routes.
You can rent a bike just about
anywhere. If you want to explore
the Netherlands on two wheels,
try the themed Dutch Coastal
Route or head to the Hoge
Veluwe National Park.
