Highlights of Zuid-Holland

The province of Zuid-Holland is a cultural paradise. The Hague, Delft, Leiden and Rotterdam boast art and history museums with outstanding collections. A few must-see museums are the Royal Picture Gallery Mauritshuis, Gemeentemuseum Den Haag, Boijmans van Beuningen, Kunsthal Rotterdam and Vermeer Centre Delft.

Traditional shots of Holland can be taken at the world famous mills of Kinderdijk, the Delft Blue pottery factory Royal Delft, the cheese market of Gouda, miniature park Madurodam and Keukenhof and its surrounding flower fields.

Everyone who visits The Hague for the first time is overwhelmed by the abundance of monuments. ‘Het Binnenhof’, palaces, stately mansions and numerous squares truly give the city an unprecedented sense of history. Rotterdam is the complete opposite of The Hague. It is a modern world city, which besides being the largest port of Europe, is renowned for its daring architecture.
