A collection of links on the Netherlands, its history and culture.
With a special focus on Amsterdam, on the historically rich countryside and fortified towns around, and on bicycle day trips there. A bike being pretty ideal for exploring.
Links are to sites that are (partly) in English, unless mentioned otherwise. Obviously, in Dutch there is much more on the internet. Just try it ; pictures and routes tend to speak for themselves.
In the resources section you'll find more practical and background information that can be useful for your visit to Holland.
