The summer months are a wonderful time in Holland. There are plenty of things to do. In the big cities, the canals are filled with little boats, the parks are full of people picnicking and barbecuing, and terraces are filled to overflowing until late in the evening. The Dutch spend every possible hour they have outdoors. So visiting Holland in summer is a wonderful idea!

Activities

There is a lot to do outside the city as well. Head for the lakes for some serious water sports, or the beach for some fun relaxing and swimming. The forests are refreshingly beautiful. With on average 7 hours of sun a day, there is plenty of opportunity to venture outside in summer.

Festivals

This is also festival season in Holland. The Dutch organise the Parade, a cultural summer fair in the four big cities, Oerol on the island of Terschelling, a summer carnival in Rotterdam, and much more. Apart from a little rain here and there, which we also have in summer, Holland is a good place to be in summer.
