For a country that brought us the claustrophobic chiaroscuro of Rembrandt and Van Gogh’s captivating fields of flowers, the Netherlands has always – for us – flexed its artistic muscles the most strongly. But contrasts and nuances also run beneath its skin. A hotbed for youth culture and thrilling nightlife, its candlelit cafes, airy art museums, and tulip-scented fields offer a genuine taste of the darkness and the light. Don’t assume anything.

Top Locations in Netherlands

If we were asked to choose our top three places in Amsterdam, we’d go for these.
Amsterdam

Amsterdam

Holland’s enchanting capital loaded with 17th-century canals and cycle lanes.

In the capital city, there are enough museums, cycle routes, art galleries, floating flower markets, and intimate cafes to keep you occupied for weeks. First, get familiar with your surroundings aboard a private salon boat, cruising down the waterways, with a glass of champagne in hand of course. You’ll then be led by Julia, an expert historian, on a walking tour to discover the cultural sights of Amsterdam’s old city center and waterfront, including Dam Square, Royal Palace, and the Begijnhof. We haven’t even mentioned Jordaan neighborhood and the Van Gogh Museum yet.

The Hauge, Holland

The Hague

Gain exclusive access to Europe’s largest circular painting.

Nestled on the North Sea coast and home to the Dutch royal family, the Hague is the Netherlands ’ third-biggest city, so it certainly packs a punch. It’s a place you can enjoy sea and sand one minute and galleries and museums the next. Enjoy a beachfront lunch, before we take you on a private walking tour of the city, exploring the expansive collection of Golden Age paintings at Mauritshuis, including behind-the-scenes access to the astounding Panorama Mesdag.

Delft, Netherlands

Delft

A lesson in Dutch history.

The canal-ringed city of Delft is iconic for many reasons, from its world-renowned blue pottery to the birth of Dutch painter Johannes Vermeer – the artist behind a ‘Girl with a Pearl Earring’. With an expert guide, you’ll uncover the rich history of Delft with a tour around Museum Prinsenhof, learning all about Prince William of Orange and the creation of the Dutch Republic. We’ll then whisk you away to the last remaining pottery factory, Delft Blue, dating back to the 17th century.
