Netherlands Walking Tour
Spending some time in the Netherlands in a must-do if you’re doing some sightseeing around Europe. The country and its Dutch people are unlike no others. Did you know that half the country was once underwater, and most of what you see today (like the canals of Amsterdam) is entirely manmade? The Dutch are an industrious, determined group of people. But it’s also one of the most interesting places you’ll ever visit. Did you know, for example, that the country has more bikes than people? And we won’t even go into that whole Red Light District thing.
A Netherlands walking tour is a really great way to get out and explore different parts of the country. You’ll find that cities are very well organized and properly planned, so that getting around on foot is a breeze! Starting out in the world famous capital, Amsterdam, you’ll be taken through everywhere from the Red Light District, past coffee shops, and to the Royal Palace on Dam Square. You can even stop for a beer, if you wish. Explore the canals winding through the busy city, and stop by the Heineken Brewery. The Anne Frank House is another must-do, where the young girl hid inside a secret passageway from Nazi occupation during World War II. You’ll learn all about Amsterdam past and present, including history about the Dutch East Indian Company, World War II, and the policies on marijuana and prostitution.
If you want to dig a little deeper, you can even do a Netherlands walking tour to some of Amsterdam’s most famous coffee shops, or you can do a pub crawl instead. Either way, you’ll learn a little something about Amsterdam’s notorious nightlife. You’re in for a very interesting time!Read More ...
