The Netherlands / Holland : Things you must see/do

Flower auctions
The Netherlands is the international trade centre for flowers and plants with its epicentre, Flora Holland in Aalsmeer, being the largest flower auction house in the world. The auctions are a fascinating sight and well worth getting up early for! Keen to know more about the auction process? Then visit De Historische Tuin (ĎThe Historic Gardení) in Aalsmeer where a replica of an auction hall has been built with a large clock from the 1930s. Get yourself a lovely bunch of roses here from the garden by ĎDutch auctioní. The trick is to pay as little as possible.

Purple hyacinths, pink crocuses, yellow daffodils and naturally our national treasure: the tulip. A festival of colours (Hollandís bulb-growing area) especially in the spring. A full canvas of vibrant colours. If that doesnít lift your spirits...

Delft factories
Of course, true Delftware comes from the city of Delft. Between 1600 and 1800 Delft was one of the most important ceramic production centres in Europe. Delftware products have been an important export product from the Netherlands for 400 years and Delftware is still well known around the world. The 17th-century Royal Delft Factory (Koninklijke Porceleyne Fles) and Delft Pottery 'de Delftse Pauw' are the only remaining factories of the original Delft Blue ceramic producers. The charming town of Delft and itís pottery factories and shops can easily be visited in a day-trip from Amsterdam.

Edam, Volendam, Marken et Monnickendam
Edam, Volendam, Marken and Monnickendam were once about two things: fishing and trading. Hardly a surprise, since the villages lay right at the edge of the Zuiderzee, the area was later impoldered and now it is called the IJsselmeer. Fortunately the authentic character of each town has been preserved, including their lively harbours, which now have full terraces, cosy eateries and Dutch herring carts. And with a bit of luck youíll bump into a resident wearing the traditional costume. In short, these Old Dutch fishing villages are Dutch folklore through and through.

Edam is a town where shipbuilding and the timber and cheese trades flourished; Edam cheese is now world-famous. Until 1922, farmers from the surrounding area sailed by boat to Edamís cheese market, where their cheese was weighed and sold. You can see how this was done every Wednesday during the summer months of July and August. On these days the cheese market is revived, complete with cheese carriers, inspectors, farmers and traders. Curious as to how the merchants lived four centuries ago? The Edam Museum is a beautiful merchantís house from 1540 with crow-stepped gable, the interior having been furnished according to the Ďlatestí in 17th-century fashion.

The Hague
Residence of the royal family since the thirteenth century, full of jewels and palaces. The remains as those of Mount St. Peter Roman caves recall the history of this ancient Roman town. Visit the main palace, Huis ten Bosch, where the royal family lives, the Noordeinde and Lange Voorhout, converted into a museum. The Parliament Buildings, the Binnenhof and his famous knights' hall, dating from the thirteenth century, also visit outside the formal sessions.

Windmills were an integral part of Dutch life for centuries, being used for industrial purposes such as milling corn or for draining the lowlands of excess water. Once, more than 10,000 windmills dotted the Dutch landscape. In fact, they are even ingrained in the language - one Dutch expression to describe an irrational person says that they must have 'been hit by a mill'.
Windmills are still celebrated today during National Windmill Day as well as on festive occasions and national holidays when they are often decorated with flowers, figures of angels and even the Dutch flag.

Amsterdam: things you must see / do

Guided Tour
With its charming, compact city centre, Amsterdam is the perfect city to experience on foot. Set your own pace as you stroll to all the major sights, then unwind and watch the world go by at a side-walk cafť.

Canal Cruising
Amsterdam has 165 canals with a total length of 100kms! With all that water it would be a pity not to get yourself into a floating vessel and explore Amsterdamís canals. Here we give you some ideas of how to best experience the waterways.

Vincent van Gogh
Whether youíre an avid art historian or just a casual observer, you will have heard of Vincent Willem van Gogh. His Sunflowers are iconic and you probably know he cut a chunk off his own ear, but only in Amsterdam can you visit the Van Gogh Museum and find out more about this renowned artist!

Anne Frank
One of Amsterdamís best-known historical figures is Anne Frank. Anne lived in hiding from the Nazis for more than two years before being deported and dying in Bergen-Belsen concentration camp in 1945, aged 15. Anneís spirit lives on through her diary. Find out more about Anne Frank in Amsterdam.

Windmills are as much a Dutch icon as clogs and tulips and they are even celebrated on 'National Windmill Day' when windmills all around the country throw open their doors to the public. With eight windmills located in and around Amsterdam, windmill spotting is a great way to see the city.

Everyone knows that Amsterdam is a glittering city, but did you know that it is also known as the ďCity of DiamondsĒ? For more than four hundred years, Amsterdam has been a diamond cutting and trade centre. At Gassan Diamonds, visitors are treated to a free tour of the diamond cutting and polishing process.
