Along the countless waterways, you will discover the true "fleur" of Holland — towns, villages, windmills and canal bridges mirrored in the shimmering water. Here you can experience the atmosphere or contrasts as we know them from the paintings of the old Dutch masters.

Whether in a welcoming café, a canal-side terrace or in boutiques, often hidden in cellars. in the old department stores of Utrecht or Amsterdam, you'll find the cheerful Dutch way of life everywhere.

Holland is the perfect country for cycling, that is if you are looking for a relaxing way to spend your holiday. There are hardly any elevation changes, so you can comfortably get anywhere you want. The specialty of Holland is the local bicycles, which you won't find elsewhere. They have a wide saddle and high handlebars so you can sit pretty straight on the bike. The Dutch cycle paths are perfectly marked with red and white paint, and there are special traffic lights at junctions. If you decide to explore Holland by bike, you'll ride through beautiful rural landscapes with water dams, historic villages and maybe even pick up some fresh cheese along the way.
