Sightseeing in Holland

There are a myriad of sightseeing options in Holland including leisure parks, cities, beaches, beautiful gardens etc. Here are just a few of the options available in Holland.

Sightseeing in Amsterdam

Amsterdam is one of the coolest cities in Europe. Beautiful, hip, laid back, lots to do, lots to see, many pubs, food from all over the world and very friendly people.
A visit to this very beautiful city is sometimes like taking a walk in the 17th century. The center of
Amsterdam has a lot of charming architecture dating from this period. It’s an excellent city to tour on foot or bicycle. However, Amsterdam may boast a lot of 17th century architecture, but that's about all that's old fashioned about the place.
Amsterdam was originally built on the shores of the saltwater 'Zuiderzee' but as a result of centuries of land reclamation projects the city now borders the freshwater of IJsselmeer. The center of Amsterdam is shaped like a horseshoe, surrounded by four famous canals called the "Singel", "Herengracht", "Keizersgracht" and "Prinsengracht". These are best to walk along if you want to see the citys beautiful gabled houses. At the open end of the horseshoe you will find the ornate Central Railway Station, the place where most of the tourists arrive and depart.
