Visit the world-famous 17th century capital of Holland. Enjoy the historic buildings, beautiful museums and pleasant ambiance. Take a boat tour on the canals, stroll through Vondelpark, and go shopping in the inner city. Amsterdam is such a unique city !
This is the city of Rembrandt, Anne Frank, the Red Light District, Johan Cruyff, and the Dutch East and West India Companies. There’s a world of fascinating stories, spellbinding art and architecture that has stood the test of time.
Keukenhof is one of the world's largest flower gardens, situated in the town of Lisse, in the Netherlands. According to the official website, Keukenhof Park covers an area of 32 hectares and approximately 7 million flower bulbs are planted in the gardens annually.
The picturesque city of Delft lies on the River Schie between Rotterdam and The Hague. Its historic Old Town is bordered by canals and is home to a delightful market square, many churches, and a number of well-preserved medieval-era houses. In addition to being an important university city, Delft has long been associated with trades and industry, in particular the manufacturing of Delftware, a world-famous form of pottery which has been around since the 17th century and is now experiencing a comeback (you'll recognize it from its distinctive blue and white colouring). In fact, much of the town's most significant architecture dates from the 1700s, when the pottery's popularity was at its peak.
