Tourist and Travel Information on the Netherlands

Nestled between Belgium and Germany on the cold North Sea is the country of The Netherlands. Natives call it Nederland, but the country is also widely known as Holland. Lensmaster Spirituality lives in the Netherlands and has some inside information for anyone who is traveling to the country. In fact, she’s created an entire group dedicated to all things Holland, which features her Lens of the Day recipient, Little Known Facts About the Netherlands.

On the group page, you can find out more information on various activities and attractions within the country, like Keukenhof Gardens, Leiden University, and some famous Dutch people which you’ll surely recognize (Do Vincent Van Gogh and Anne Frank ring a bell?).

The biggest tourist destination in all of the Netherlands would be Amsterdam, which the Netherlands group also has covered. The Top Ten Things to Do in Amsterdam lens is beautifully illustrated with photos of the canals, museums and famous windmills, while providing information and opinion on places like the Anne Frank House, Rijksmuseum, the Floating Flower Garden, and of course, the notorious anything-goes Red Light District (which is just a small part of Amsterdam).
