Reasons to visit the Netherlands

Tulip-filled landscapes

When booking your Netherlands flight tickets, early spring is a great time to visit. From late March to early May, it comes alive with vibrant fields of tulips.

The rainbow-coloured carpets cover the countryside – but can also be found in festivals, gardens and the famous floating flower markets in Amsterdam. Around seven million tulip bulbs are planted in the Keukenhof Gardens in Lisse every year – making it perhaps the perfect place to see these iconic flowers in bloom.

A cycling haven

Whether you want to fly to the Netherlands for a cultural mini-break or a two-week stay, hopping on a bike is a must. The landscape is famously flat, making touring the countryside on two wheels an attractive prospect.

Even urban cycling is a joy, thanks to the country’s investment in thousands of miles of cycle track completely separate from any highway traffic. Easy to navigate, there really isn’t a better way to see the country than as the locals do – on two wheels.

Uncover Rotterdam’s hidden secrets

Your Netherlands flight may take you to Amsterdam, but Rotterdam is also an intriguing destination. Just an hour away by car, the city is a cosmopolitan playground easily explored as a day trip. Rotterdam embraced the opportunity to almost completely rebuild – and reinvent itself – after World War II.

Visitors will be amazed by the sea of high-rise buildings but there are also contemporary art galleries and a wealth of museums. Make sure you take time to see Rotterdam’s picturesque coast too.

The best of the Netherlands

The Netherlands is a captivating mixture. It blends thoroughly modern cities with historic buildings and investment in the future with hints of the past.

From Amsterdam’s canals to the riotous colours of tulip season, this is a country that knows how to wow your senses. It’s a friendly place too, one where you can feel at one with the locals as you stroll along city streets trying local delicacies. Even a simple cone of chips with mayonnaise is elevated to a fine art when eaten outside a centuries-old canalside townhouse.
