Dutch will design it, build it, manufacture it, recycle it, craft it, launch it (the Netherlands is one of the world’s hottest start-up hubs) and make it a reality. There’s a sense that anything’s possible here.
Nature in Holland
Holland is known as a flat country. As such the landscape is perfect for cycling and walking tours. The countless nature parks, each with its own character, offer up wonderful landscapes. You could visit Oostvaarders Plassen or the Hoge Veluwe, for instance, and explore the unique flora and fauna.
Holland also boasts a long coastline with beautiful beaches. Because there is so much water, the Netherlands is at risk of flooding.
