Regions of Netherlands

The Netherlands may be small, but it packs in a huge variety of landscapes, from the olive-green canals of Amsterdam to the wild sandy beaches of the Frisian Islands. There’s a stack of art, too, from Rembrandt to Van Gogh, as well as an army of great bars and lively nightlife. Whether seeking the familiar or obscure, use our map of the Netherlands below to plan your trip.

Most visitors will head straight to Amsterdam, where you can lose yourself in the refurbished, world-beating Rijksmuseum or drift away in a mellow coffeeshop – if only with a delicious hot chocolate. Then there are Amsterdam’s waterside charms, from urban beaches to canals, and streets to wanter in Grachtengordel, Amsterdam’s prettiest district. If you’re feeling adventurous, hire a guide and attempt Wadlopen, a popular but tiring mudflat hike, along the North Sea Coast.
