Holland is a country at the heart of Europe. The canals and cobbled streets of Amsterdam attract many visitors every year. The city is a blend of old and new, and can be as lively or sedate as you want it to be. Out of the cities, the landscape of the Netherlands is best explored by bike – and prepare to see the tulip fields and windmills you were expecting.
