Planning a move to Holland? The Netherlands is known for canals, tulips, windmills, and bicycling, but this beautiful country offers modern amenities, a cosmopolitan atmosphere, and a high standard of living.
The crown jewel of Holland is, of course, Amsterdam. This international city is a mecca for those who appreciate having world-class culture and dining with a relaxed vibe. Wherever you go in the city, you’ll notice the preferred mode of transportation is the bicycle, and consequently, it’s an incredibly bike-friendly urban center. If you prefer not to bike, public transportation is easy here, with ferries, buses, and trams all available to most locations. Don’t be concerned if you don’t speak Dutch right away, because Amsterdam is truly a multicultural center filled with highly skilled business professionals, and if you speak English, you’ll get along just fine. The large city market, the Albert Cuypmarkt, offers a wide range of cultural cuisines, from Moroccan to Surinamese, and for fresh produce, you can visit the Noordermarkt every Saturday. And of course, there are museums everywhere, from the Van Gogh Museum and the Rembrandt Museum to the sprawling Rijksmuseum.
In the spring, the Dutch countryside is transformed into vast rainbows of color as the tulips start to bloom, and it’s the perfect time of year to visit the iconic windmills of Holland. In Lisse, you can find the Keukenhof Gardens, also known as the Garden of Europe, one of the world’s largest flower gardens. And while most of the medieval castles of the Netherlands have not survived, there are several beautiful ones still intact. Start with Muiderslot Castle in the province of North Holland for a truly stunning day trip.
