Slides
A collection of links on the Netherlands, its history, culture and heritage. With a special focus on Amsterdam, and on the more rural area just southeast of the city we call countryside in Holland.
In any case, an unexpected variety of nature there, so close to Amsterdam. With plenty of history and small fortified towns. Ideal terrain for a bicycle day trip. Links are to websites that are (partly) in English, unless mentioned otherwise. Obviously, in Dutch there is much more on the internet. Just try it ; images tend to speak for themselves. In the resources section you can find more practical and background information that can be of use for your visit to Holland.
