Holland Travel Guide

Keukenhof Garden, Holland

Discover Holland with DFDS

Holland may be a small country, but as the famous home of tulips, clogs, windmills and Amsterdam, its reputation as a holiday destination speaks for itself.

It is a country rich in history and heritage plays host to a liberal and modern populace. Short breaks in Holland come in all shapes and sizes, whether you’re looking to party in Amsterdam, learn the history of the Dutch Golden Age in Utrecht or go camping in the countryside, there truly is something for everyone.

From the UK, Holland is easily accessible via our daily overnight ferry service from Newcastle.

Holland-Amsterdam

Overview, Traditions & History

Holland was once a major colonial power, and challenged the English for naval supremacy. Throughout the Golden Age of the 17th century, its standard of living was the best in the world and to this day Holland remains one of the most developed countries in the world, regularly finishing highly in the OECD better life index.

Holland is a famously liberal and cosmopolitan country, with inhabitants from all over the world, especially in the capital Amsterdam. Holland is a constitutional monarchy - King Willem-Alexander presides over the government in name only, and the royal palace is still available to see in the centre of Amsterdam.
