NETHERLANDS

There’s more to the Netherlands than picturesque windmills, multi-coloured tulips, and its world-famous bicycle culture. It is an essential stop for art and architecture enthusiasts alike, and its cultural capital, Amsterdam, is a vibrant and cosmopolitan city with history and creativity at every turn.

In Amsterdam cruise in a glass-topped boat through the old waterways, where wealthy merchants built mansions during the Golden Age of the 17th century. Witness the impressive market hall and Erasmus Bridge on your orientation of modern Rotterdam. See the Binnenhof courtyards and the Peace Palace in The Hague and visit one of the manufacturers of original Delft blue pottery.

With Insight Vacations gain access to exclusive experiences: • Explore the Rijksmuseum with a local art historian in Amsterdam • Journey through the polder landscape to visit Volendam.
