10 Best Places to Visit in the Netherlands. No visit to Holland is complete without a
visit to the capital city, Amsterdam; however, there are so many more thrilling sites to
see in the Netherlands. From the classic windmills and magnificent
fields of flowers to historic town centers laden with museums and sights, Holland has
much to offer visitors. These places to visit in the Netherlands are
not to be missed, and most are easily accessible. 10: Gouda. Gouda is a typical Dutch city with lots of
old buildings and pretty canals, and is a popular destination for a day trip, thanks
to its great rail- and highway connections. The city is famous for its cheese, its stroopwafels
(syrup waffles), candles and its clay pipes. Attractions in Gouda include the beautiful
15th century town hall and the amazing glass windows in St. Janskerk. The compact city center is entirely ringed
by canals and is a mere five minutes’ walk from the station. 9: Rotterdam. Once a mere 13th century fishing village,
Rotterdam is the Netherlands most modern city today. Very bike friendly like Amsterdam, Rotterdam
boasts several historic districts for visitors to explore. The popular Delfshaven district is where the
pilgrims launched sail from in 1620, and the summertime festivals and carnivals there attract
visitors from nearby European countries every year. Erasmus Bridge is highly unique and imposing,
but highly regarded as a work of art, as it soars over Europe’s largest harbor. By far, the most popular visitor stop is at
the Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen, where artworks on display span from the Middle Ages to modern
times, including masterpieces by Dali, Van Gogh, Bosch, and Rembrandt. 8: Groningen. This culturally diverse university city is
small but boasts two colleges, making it the main place to visit in the northern part of
the Netherlands, especially concerning the arts, business, and education. Museum lovers never tire in Groningen, as
the Groninger Museum is one of the most innovative and modern in all of Holland, and there is
additionally a graphical museum, comics museum, maritime museum, and a university museum. Music and theater abound in Groningen, and
many street cafes feature live entertainment. Because of its high student population, nightlife
hotspots are a huge attraction, with The Grote Markt, the Peperstraat, and the Vismarkt being
the most popular. 7: Haarlem. The center of the tulip bulb-growing district,
Haarlem is unofficially dubbed Bloemenstad, which means ‘flower city’ and is naturally
the home of the Annual Bloemencorso Parade. This quiet bedroom community lies along the
shoreline of the Spaarne River and boasts numerous intact medieval structures around
town. Visitors enjoy shopping and perusing the stunning
architecture and museums along the Grote Markt city center. Popular museums in Haarlem include the oldest
museum in the country, the Teylers Museum, which specializes in natural history, art,
and science exhibits. Art aficionados find themselves drawn to the
Franz Hals Museum where many Dutch masters’ works rest. 6: Utrecht. The rich Middle Age history of Utrecht is
very apparent in the city’s architecture, with its most unique feature being the inner
canal wharf system that was created to stave off parts of the Rhine River from invading
the city center. Utrecht’s claim to fame may be the fact
that it boasts the largest college in Holland, the University of Utrecht. Another notable visitor attraction in Utrecht
includes the awe-striking Gothic Cathedral of Saint Martin, a 200-year structural feat
that began in 1254. Architecture and museum enthusiasts should
not miss the Dom Tower, the Rietveld Schroder House, and the Museum Speelklok, which boasts
a vast collection of striking clocks, music boxes, and self-playing musical instruments. 5: Maastricht. Best known for its dynamic city square, the
Vrijthof, Maastricht in southern Holland is home to the impressive Saint Servatius Church,
the Saint Jan’s Cathedral, and the old fortifications, or Vestigingswerkens, are huge draws for visitors
here. Many annual festivals take place at the Vrijthof,
with local favorites arriving in autumn and winter, and this bustling town square also
boasts amazing cafes, hip bars, and interesting galleries and shops. Other popular attractions in Maastricht include
the St. Pietersberg Caves and the Helpoort, the oldest surviving town gate of its kind
in the Netherlands. 4: The Hague. Best known for the contemporary art exhibits
at the Gemeentemuseum Den Haag and the Royal Picture Gallery Mauritshuis, The Hague is
arguably one of the most extraordinary places to visit in the Netherlands. Known as the Royal City by the Sea due to
its Dutch Royalty citizens, visitors often enjoy spending time along the North Sea in
the warmer months at the sea town of Scheveningen. Several notable monuments and historic districts
are easily traversable in The Hague, and travelers can peruse the luxury department stores, cozy
shops, and international art galleries with ease. The Binnenhof, the seat of the government
of the Netherlands is also located in The Hague even though Amsterdam is the capital. Other attractions in The Hague include the
miniature city, Madurodam and a 360 degree panoramic view of the Scheveningen Sea in
the 19th century at Panorama Mesdag. 3: Delft. From the Renaissance style City Hall building
on the Markt Square to the city’s traditional Holland canals, architecture, and vibe, Delft
is a progressive town that has worked diligently to restore its antiquated appearance. This unspoiled town is an ideal day trip destination
or vacation destination if the busy streets of Amsterdam are undesirable for a long stay. Popular sites include The Prinsenhof, where
the bullet holes still remain from the death of William of Orange. This museum tells the tale of the Eighty Years’
War and also features many intriguing artworks. Those looking for a Johannes Vermeer souvenir
or print cannot miss stopping by Vermeer Centrum in Delft. 2: Leiden. The picturesque city of Leiden is a great
place to visit for its scenic, tree-lined canals that are marked with old windmills,
wooden bridges and lush parks. A boat ride down one of these lovely canals
makes for an unforgettable experience. Attractions in Leiden include the numerous
museums that range from science and natural history to museums dedicated to windmills
and Egyptian antiquities. The Hortus Botanicus offers sprawling botanical
gardens and the world’s oldest academical observatory. Visitors can also admire the beautiful architecture
of the 16th century Church of St. Peter and check out its association with several historic
people, including the American pilgrims. 1: Amsterdam. One of Europe’s most popular tourist destinations,
Amsterdam is widely known for its party atmosphere, cannabis practice and the red light district. With over 1500 fabulous monumental buildings
and just as many bridges, visitors to Amsterdam spend much of their time exploring the eccentricities
and marvelous museums dotting the 60 miles of canals across the city. The Anne Frank House and the Rijksmuseum Museum
are the most popular stops for history and art seekers, while the Prinsengracht area
is one of the best places for shopping, gallery viewing, pub crawling, and checking out the
unique coffee shops in Amsterdam.

    If you're going to talk about various cities, give the CORRECT Pronounciation — or, is your computer- generated voice incapable of that?? And showing trees, doorways & alleyways, & a street intersection Does Not give me a feel for what the city has to offer.

    Ah yes, 12:09: show a timelapse of one of the craziest events ever (crowd-wise), which is called Sail [the year it is held] and let people get the impression it's always that crazy. It's not, forget about Amsterdam and go to some of the places Laurens Romboud mentioned. Not only are they very interesting as well, they are also a LOT LESS touristy. Chances of running into an actual local in the city centre of Amsterdam are very, very small.

    Thinking about going to Amsterdam in the summer? Prepare yourself for extremely crowded streets, long waiting times at museums and that kind of thing. Amsterdam has had it's days as a tourist city, but the city council went completely overboard with their idea of tourism (and even wanted more tourists when the most recent number of tourists that visited Amsterdam in 1 year was presented) and it's just beyond stupid now. I hate having to be or go through the city centre during the summer, it's just not funny anymore.
