The Netherlands even set up specific routes for touring, known as bulb routes. A number of flower parades provide a ton of color from April through September.

Netherlands Vacation Spots

The northern part of the Netherlands is divided into three provinces: Friesland, Groningen, and Drenthe, of which much of the land is sparsely populated, and the agriculture industry is abundant. Friesland’s varied bodies of water such as canals and scenic lakes attract those hungry for water sports, and try mud walking between the Frisian Islands and the mainland. Groningen is famous for its university and the uniquely styled housing of a modern art/porcelain museum. Visit the large boulders from ice glaciers in Drenthe.

The Wadden Islands, bordering the Wadden Sea and the North Sea, have a proud tradition as islands with a year-round resort feel. The largest island of Texel offers villages and an abundance of natural areas and wooded lands.

Rare flora and a vast collection of fauna lure vacationers to Ameland. Schiermonnikoog is a very relaxing getaway with lively summers.

Two provinces comprise the eastern part of the Netherlands: Gelderland and Overijssel. Overijssel touches the man-made lake of IJsselmeer and is ripe with historic towns, castles and manor houses. Gelderland is home to Arnhem, a key area in World War II, and the location of the grand national park named “De Hoge Veluwe.”

Old and new sit nearby in Central Netherlands, where both the provinces of Utrecht and Flevoland are. Flevoland was formerly part of the IJsselmeer, and became a province in 1986. Utrecht sports a fascinating history dating back to the Roman era.
