Famous for its canal system, bike access, tulips, museums, and… extracurricular activities, Amsterdam is one of the most interesting cities in Europe. Still, the Netherlands, or Holland, has much more to offer than this one city. See the Hague, home to the UN International Court of Justice, or explore Maastricht, a university city and one of the oldest cities in Holland with museums to satisfy any curiosity. Foodies rejoice in Rotterdam, the Gouda cheese capital of the world. No tour in the Netherlands is truly complete without experiencing tulip season which begins in late January.
