Amsterdam Netherlands: A Must Have Experience

The Netherlands, Western Europe’s country, is famously celebrated for its attractive red lights, coffee shops, and most likely tulips. However, the nation has much more to offer other than just that. There are many exciting things to do in the Netherlands apart from visiting the canals and the coffee shops. It is jam-packed with historical cobblestones and brick-filled lane cities, interlocked canals, iconic windmills, beautiful beaches, vast and fine-looking farmlands. All these make the Netherlands be one of my favourite vacationer country in the world. Many people who come to the Netherlands only spend a little time in Amsterdam and so they miss the best pleasurable opportunities this nation has to offer. If you want to discover what makes me coming back to this beautiful country, then take your time and explore beyond its cities. I advise you to visit the northern part of the nation during May just to see the blooming tulips or visit Utrecht to picture this beautiful country without the crowd.

Maastricht: How to get there from Amsterdam, where to stay with comfort, what to enjoy

I would recommend you the easiest one : after arriving to the Netherlands: Shiphol take a train, right from the Airport which will lead you directly to the beautiful place called Maastricht(one of the most interesting places in the Netherlands). It will take you only barely 2 hours, will cost 25,60 Euro and will set you in a comfortable fast train where you can enjoy all beauties of Holland fields and nature. What you really need to know is that you will have one change on the way and let it not frighten you. Your stop is in Utrecht, Utrecht Central, where you change the train at the same platform, just changing its side. So after Urtrecht you move fast, smoothly and with great pleasure.

Utrecht: the cosier version of Amsterdam

When I was given the choice where to study in the Netherlands, I did not have to think for a long time. Sure: Amsterdam is fun, but there is nothing like Utrecht! Where Amsterdam is full of tourists and an easy place to get lost, Utrecht is like a smaller version and a pleasant place to stroll around without finding yourself in an unknown area of the city afterwards. It has the same charm: with its ‘kanalen’ (canals) that run through most of the city centre, and the ‘Domtoren’ (the Dome) that can be seen from kilometres away. With almost 400.000 inhabitants, Utrecht is the fourth largest city of the Netherlands, after Amsterdam, Rotterdam and the Hague. A large part of the population of Utrecht consists of students, which travel from and to the ‘Uithof’, where the academic university buildings are, by bicycle or by bus. Even those who have been to the Netherlands before will be amazed by the amount of bikes that are shattered around the city of Utrecht. Since driving through the city centre can take annoyingly long, this is how most people find their way to their destinations. Fun fact: every Dutchman has approximately 1,3 bikes.
