The spirit of Amsterdam and the Netherlands
Amsterdam’s spirit stretches far beyond the city limits. Freedom, friendliness and an open mind you’ll meet all through the region. The Netherlands is famous for its tolerance and openness, a bit cheeky, but very direct. Sober and diligent people.
There is a lot to do and see just outside the town. If you stay a couple of days in our beautiful capital city we recommend you strongly to spend at least one day in the nearby region. Why? Let us give you five reasons to do so.
We designed four road trips for you. They’re a mixture of nature, countryside, CASTLES and culture. You pass historical Dutch villages for a nice break.
Five reasons to explore the surroundings
Hello. My name is turtle Clyde. I’m at your service as your guide. In this world of speed and stress, I take my time for more! No less. Welcome in the Netherlands! Follow me and let’s shake hands.
The Netherlands is an important player in the development of Western civilization. To understand how this Western civilization works, you must see more than Amsterdam only.
The nearby historical towns are older (medieval) and each has its own typical Dutch characteristics. Too beautiful to miss out on now you’re here.
The countryside around Amsterdam is unique and nowhere to be found in the world. This fascinating landscape inspired the Dutch master painters in the past so need we say more? The polders, the old farms, castles and historical villages certainly are a must see.
There is the beach just around the corner. Within half an hour traveling you’re there. Enjoy the dunes and the long and wide beaches all through the year for a swim or a stroll. Watch the sunset with a drink or a meal on a nice terrace.
Last but not least.Public transport in the Netherlands and especially in this region is superb. All our daytrip suggestions and locations are within a range of travel distance of upmost one hour.
