From windmill, tulips to canals, the Netherlands is packed with world renowned icons that highlight the unique ambiance of its sceneries. Amsterdam, the capital of the Netherlands, is a cultural hub of historic buildings, artistic museums and monumental canals. Apart from the 17th century canal ring area that is appointed as the UNESCO World Heritage, the crowd in the Dam Square, the masterpieces in Van Gogh Museum and Rijksmuseum, and the memorable story recorded in the Anne Frank House have framed the historical beauty of this city. As Amsterdam is surrounded by water, you can get a prime view of the most interesting and beautiful sight of the city by taking a canal cruise through its waterways.
Nineteen gorgeous windmills, rear in the beautiful wetland around Dordrecht in South Holland for centuries, symbolize Dutch water management system and are iconic scene that you cannot miss! If you visit Keukenhof, the most famous and largest flower park in the world, in spring, you can see the Dutch tulip fields in bloom. The Hague (in Dutch: Den Haag) is also known as the "City of Peace and Justice" where the Dutch Government and Parliament are located. The historical building, Peace Palace (in Dutch: Het Vredespaleis), is still used by the International Court of Justice, the Permanent Court of Arbitration, the Peace Palace Library, as well as by The Hague Academy of International Law. You can also take a look inside by taking a guided tour.
With rich, milky and nutty taste, the iconic Gouda cheese is perfect to be served as an appetizer. The Texel Lamb, which is grazed freely in grassy earthworks and exercise every day, has a unique texture that fits for any ideas of dinner. Nothing is a better finishing touch for your meal than a dish of Poffertjes, typical Dutch treat resembling very small and fluffy pancakes, served with powdered sugar and hot melted butter.
