Indulge your passions in Holland

Holland is a truly accessible destination, with so many easyJet flight options from across the UK to Amsterdam Airport Schiphol, flying to Holland has never been easier. 

Whether you are travelling to discover foodie hotspots, historic gems, dynamic design or traditional past-times, Holland is a land of plenty and whatever your passion you are sure to make memorable moments on your trip. 

The major Dutch cities are just a short train ride away from Amsterdam Airport Schiphol, so why not make the most of your break to Holland and explore some more?

Dynamic design

If you are looking to kit out your home with something a little less “off the shelf” then shopping for design goods is a dream in Holland.

Eindhoven’s post-industrial buildings house design collectives, pop-up shops and to die for homeware stores. If shopping isn’t on your holiday to do list, why not keep your design passion fuelled with visits to the Philips Museum or Dutch Design Week held annually every October - this must-see city-wide event gives a firm nod to the designers of the future. 

Rotterdam is hard to beat for all things hip and cool when it comes to architecture, design shopping or street art, our top tip is head to Witte de Withstraat – you can’t go far wrong.

Tradition at heart

When you first think of Holland perhaps it’s cheese, windmills or cycling that comes to mind? Holland has some classic icons that you should really check off your must-see list. If you like a windmill or several, then Kinderdijk is the place to visit. This UNESCO heritage site has waterside windmills that are picture postcard perfect and did we mention you can get there by boat from Rotterdam? It’s not to be missed. 

If you like the odd wheel of cheese, then head to the historic cities of Gouda or Edam for the real deal with traditional market squares selling cheese in time-honoured ways, you can even get yourself weighed in cheese! 

After eating all that cheese a cycling tour is probably in order. Cycling beside canals, over quaint bridges or along cobbled streets in Utrecht is the ideal way to see this gem of a city or for springtime travellers the tulip fields outside of Amsterdam are a perfumed filled cycling experience.


If catching tulip fever is your passion, then a springtime break to Holland should be on your agenda. Tulips are in full bloom from March to May and nothing quite prepares you for the bold fields of colour and picture pretty flower stalls and markets. 
Instagram worthy ‘photo opportunities galore’ are to be had at Keukenhof Gardens, Lisse. This is THE place to go to see spring flowers in one place, with millions of blooms planted across its grounds and hothouses, nothing screams springtime like a visit here.

Master your Dutch painters

Whether you are a fan of Van Gogh, Rembrandt or Vermeer, Holland’s galleries and museums have plenty to offer the art fan. 
In the Mauritshuis, The Hague come face to face with Girl with a Pearl Earring (a selfie-worthy moment if ever there was one) or marvel at the many Rembrandt paintings that line the gallery walls. 

Van Gogh fans could head to the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam to see many of his masterpieces including Sunflowers, or Almond Blossom but if you want to avoid the crowds, head to the Noordbrabants Museum in Den Bosch which holds a small collection of Van Gogh’s early works in the region where he lived for many years. Or visit the Kroller Muller Museum in Gelderland and see the 2nd largest Van Gogh collection in the world.

Foodies paradise

If gourmet dining is your thing then Michelin star restaurants can be found across the country, but delicious dining comes in many shapes and forms in Holland. 

Ever wanted to eat in an old water tower? Then head to Water Toren WT in Utrecht.  Fancy having a meal in a former power station, then Radio Royaal, Eindhoven is for you. Want to eat the freshest seafood? 

Then the harbour clubs at Scheveningen (The Hague) are the place for you or should that be ‘plaice’ for you?! If you are not a seafood fan but you like to be beside the seaside, then the pier at Scheveningen has dining options to suit everyone. The Hague is also famous for its many Indonesian speciality restaurants offering satay rich treats, sambals and rice tafels and who knows, you might even find yourself dining with royalty, in this royal city by the sea.
