A collection of links on the Netherlands, its history and culture, what to discover, and how. With a special focus on Amsterdam and on the relatively rural region just outside and southeast of the city.
Links to sites that are (partly) in English, unless mentioned otherwise. For a bit of Dutch bicycle history see page " Why the bike became popular in the Netherlands ".
In this section also more general cycling backgrounds, links and tips.
A different way of travelling north : Eilandhopper (Island Hopper).
This small company operates ferry services with traditional sailing ships like the one below. Between Amsterdam, northern ports and Frisian Islands (or Wadden).
You can take your bike along for half the price of a passenger ticket.
Nice way to travel !
