Holland holidays & tours


Holland holidays & tours

We have a great choice of holidays that include a stop in Holland. This is your chance to tour Holland's fascinating capital, Amsterdam - a maze of beautiful canals and bridges, leafy streets and green parks. On Holland holidays you can see unforgettable sights: the moving Anne Frank Museum, scene of a brave young girl's hidden life; Rembrandt's House, the inner sanctum of a master; exquisite St Nicholas Church and the ravishing Van Gogh Museum.

On holidays to Holland you must also make time for a pancake at a canal side cafe, and a wander through Amsterdam's lovely Vondelpark. And just five minutes from the city centre you will find green pastures, swans swimming in canals and barely a house in sight. See them all on holidays in Holland.

Europe’s most non-conformist capital welcomes you with its arms full of sunflowers and tulips, tantalising all your senses. The erstwhile fishing village at the mouth of the Amstel River, which wrote some the most important pages in the history of the Dutch Golden Age (17th century), has a lot more to offer than the licentious hedonism of the Red Light District.
The Netherlands' third-largest city, Den Haag, is a stately, regal place filled with embassies and mansions, green boulevards and parks, a refined culinary scene, a clutch of fine museums and a sybaritic cafe culture. Conversely, its seaside suburb of Scheveningen has a loud and lively kitsch and a long stretch of beach. Officially known as ’s-Gravenhage (the Count's Hedge), Den Haag is the Dutch seat of government and home to the royal family. Prior to 1806, Den Haag was the Dutch capital. However, that year, Louis Bonaparte installed his government in Amsterdam. Eight years later, when the French had been ousted, the government returned to Den Haag, but the title of capital remained with Amsterdam. In the 20th century Den Haag became the home of several international legal entities, including the UN's International Court of Justice, which regularly holds trials that put Den Haag in the headlines. This is also where foreign embassies in the Netherlands are based, giving the city a significant international community of expats.
Futuristic architecture, inspired local initiatives such as inner-city canal surfing, a proliferation of art, and a surge of drinking, dining and nightlife venues make Rotterdam one of Europe's most exhilarating cities right now. The Netherlands' second-largest metropolis has a diverse, multiethnic community, an absorbing maritime tradition centred on Europe's busiest port, and a wealth of top-class museums. Rotterdam is a veritable open-air gallery of modern, postmodern and contemporary construction. It's a remarkable feat for a city largely razed to the ground by WWII bombers. Rebuilding has continued unabated ever since with ingenuity and vision. Split by the vast Nieuwe Maas shipping channel, Rotterdam is crossed by a series of tunnels and bridges, notably the dramatic Erasmusbrug – the swooping white cable-stayed bridge dubbed de Zwaan (the Swan). On the north side of the water, the city centre is easily strolled.
