Sunset over windmills in Holland

Whether you want to call it the Netherlands or Holland, you can be sure of a proper Dutch welcome the minute you step off the plane. Synonymous with dams, tulips, dykes and the amazing science behind its reclaimed land, you will find that Holland has a lot more to offer than just these associations.

Whether you choose to arrive via the main airport at Amsterdam (AMS) or one of the other airports at Rotterdam (RTM), Maastricht (MST), Groningen (GRQ) or Eindhoven (EIN), you will find a unique country full of sites to see and culture to soak up.

For many, flights to the Netherlands mean a city break to Amsterdam. Infamous for its night life, the city is an incredibly popular tourist destination with lots to see and do. Enjoy the many clubs and pubs and investigate the cafe culture to truly get the most of this night life while in the city.

During the day, enjoy the canal and cafe culture and watch the world go by while enjoying a drink or meal at one of the many canal side establishments. The food here is rich and unique and you will not be able to resist sampling some of the country's fine cheese or smoked and pickled fish.Ride a bike on the Netherland's flat terrain

The rich history of the city is celebrated everywhere so no matter where in the city you end up you will find something of interest. Anne Frank House and the Van Gogh Museum are must-sees for any art and history buffs while the townhouses and Oude Kerk are vital viewing for those interested in architecture.

Amsterdam's public transport network is a reflection of the country's system as a whole and you will find that getting anywhere in Holland can be done with relative ease by train or bus. If you wish to explore the country, trips to Haarlem, Delft, Den Haag and Leiden will allow you to experience Dutch culture without the tourist aspects of Amsterdam itself. You will also want to be sure you make time to visit the superb beachfronts along the North Sea.

To get out of the cities and explore, hiring a car is also a good option, especially if you want to travel to neighbouring countries Germany and Belgium. Netherlands flights are an excellent point of entry for extended European tours and you can organise everything with the airports in advance.
