This low-lying nation is known for its colourful tulip fields, long, straight lanes and relaxed attitude towards foreign visitors. The Netherlands is also famous for its artists such as Piet Mondrian and Vincent van Gogh as well as visitor attractions such as the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam, which attracts visitors from all over the world every year.
Taking a stroll through Amsterdam and its many parks is an ideal way to spend an afternoon, but there’s more to do. You could go shopping, go on a boat ride around the canals of Rotterdam; watch a football match in somewhere like Eindhoven or perhaps go on a bike ride into the countryside and see the tulip fields up close.
In the Netherlands, you don’t have to pay motorway tolls, so don’t worry about needing a little spare change in case.
Children aged three or under are required by law to sit in the back using a suitable seat restraint.
Trams have priority over cars so you must give way to trams at all times.
In urban areas, you’re only allowed to sound your horn in extreme circumstances.
