Holland is traditionally known for it’s small villages and historic cities, endless fields of flowers, the windmills at the Kinderdijk and the Delta Works. Of course, the more obvious cultural choices such as the Anne Frank House, the Van Gogh Museum and the Rijksmuseum certainly should not be missed, but there’s so much more waiting to be uncovered.
UNESCO World Heritage Site and pioneering work of modernism the Rietveld Schröder House is just one of the sites that stands out. Another great landmark is the impressive Panorama Mesdag, a 14 meter high cylindrical painting with a width of 120 meters, painted in 1881. Or take in the view of Rotterdam and it’s surroundings on top of the Euromast Tower, Holland’s highest observation tower.
Holland’s major cities are just jam-packed with heritage sites, architectural gems, hidden churches, picturesque canals and charming castles. Each and every venue reflects Holland’s rich history ranging from the famous Golden Age to more recent times.
