Go on a Holland holiday

A staggering 15,000 bicycles are fished out of the Amsterdam canals every year: perhaps it’s time for a road trip. Book car hire in Amsterdam and journey into the Netherlands. In the lowlands, everything is just a few hours away.

There are more cities beyond Amsterdam, of course. Visit friendly Rotterdam or The Hague, the country’s political heart. For rural escapes, head to the coastline and the pretty beaches on the North Sea where the locals go in summer. In Waterland and the village of Zaanse Schans, see quintessential windmills tasked with pumping water from the fields. Wander the restful gardens of Keukenhof, where tulips are planted in extraordinary symmetry and bloom in their thousands.

Waterland
Waterland.

Head just north of Amsterdam and you’ll find the wonderfully stereotypical Waterland region, made up of picturesque villages, dykes, canals and of course, windmills. Visit the picturesque village of Broek in Waterland, which was visited by Napoleon in 1811 and has changed little since. Equally charming and worthy of a visit is the fishing village of Volendam, with its historic buildings, bustling harbour and fascinating museum. And who can resist a trip to Edam, home of the delicious cheese, whose famous cheese market in summer has been operating since the 16th century.
