Top-Rated Tourist Attractions in the Netherlands



The Netherlands (also known as Holland) is known everywhere as the land of windmills, canals, and tulips, and today's visitors certainly will find these among its many tourist attractions. But along with the breathtaking gardens and picturesque villages, they'll also find a vibrant capital filled with museums showcasing the country's rich heritage of artists (think Rembrandt and Van Gogh).

Jordaan and Amsterdam's Canals - 

Canals are as much a part of Amsterdam's cityscapes - and charm - as the are in Venice, and some of the most enduring memories of any visit are of time spent exploring the city's wonderful waterways.

Anne Frank Museum, Amsterdam - 
The Anne Frank Museum is a must-see when in Amsterdam. On Prinsengracht, in the home where Anne's family hid for much of WWII (they were Jewish refugees from Frankfurt), is where this remarkable girl wrote her famous diary.

Hoge Veluwe National Park - 
You may be surprised to learn that the Netherlands, a relatively small country, boasts one of the world's most diverse national park programs. The largest is Hoge Veluwe National Park, between Arnhem and Apeldoorn. Covering nearly 13,800 acres, this national park is the largest continuous nature reserve in the country, as well as being one of the most popular day trip destinations for locals and visitors alike.

Historic Valkenburg - 
For those looking for a little ancient history, the Netherlands is not without its own medieval (and earlier) attractions. Romantic little Valkenburg, in the picturesque Geul Valley, boasts the country's only hilltop castle. Long a popular holiday resort, the town's other big draws are its many caves and the spa facilities at Thermae 2000, one of the largest such establishments in the Netherlands.

The Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam - 
The spectacular Rijksmuseum (aka the Dutch National Museum) in Amsterdam has been collecting rare art and antiquities since 1809. Not surprisingly, its extensive collection today amounts to nearly seven million works of art, including 5,000 paintings in more than 250 rooms, as well as a vast library with some 35,000 books. Apart from its unique collection of old masters, it offers an exhaustive account of the development of art and culture in the Netherlands and is especially rich in traditional Dutch handicrafts, medieval sculpture, and modern art.
