Netherlands

Overview

Sometimes overlooked in favour of its bigger neighbours, the tiny Netherlands punches well above its weight when it comes to culture, while offering a quintessentially European storybook setting.

The pastoral charm of The Netherlands – and in particular its windmills, tulip farms and quaint farmhouses and villages – has earned it a place amongst the most famous iconography of Central Europe. Its bike-friendly culture, national parks and low-lying topography make it a popular destination for cycling tours. Lightfoot’s clients often like to combine cycling tours with a cultural journey through Amsterdam or Rotterdam.

For art galleries and museums, the capital Amsterdam has long been one of the cultural highlights of Europe. While history permeates through the city from the poignant Anne Frank’s House to the 17th century merchant houses lining the canals. Above everything else, it’s just a charming place to explore –whether on foot or by bike – with plenty of dark wood pubs, eclectic restaurants, nooks and crannies to explore. As well as many beautiful waterways to explore.

Our European Travel Designers have handpicked their favourite designer and boutique hotels in the city, as well as a few classics. Contact our team to find out more about a luxury holiday to the Netherlands.
