One of the top attractions in the Netherlands is the Keukenhof, a large flower park with endless fields of tulips and hyacinths in the colors red, yellow, white and purple. Apart from that the Netherlands, situated at the North Sea and the Waddenzee, is a paradise for sailors, surfers, swimmers and sun bathers. Water sports enthusiasts will also love Friesland, a province that largey consists of lakes. The Wadden islands, with its stretched beaches, beautiful dunes, rugged nature and – if you are lucky – seals, attract many lovers of nature. The Veluwe is Holland’s largest nature reserve and offers a perfect escape from the stresses of the city life. It boasts vast forests, moors and sand drifts, with deer and wild boars and is a mecca for hikers, cyclists, bird watchers, families and people seeking peace and quiet.
