More information about cities in Holland

Holland has many faces, which is reflected in its various cities. For example, there are the small settlements around IJsselmeer lake where people made a living by fishing, while along the river IJssel towns flourished thanks to the Hanseatic League, and along the coast, you will find gorgeous resorts.

Dutch cheese cities

It’s a product found all over the world: Gouda cheese. This delicacy comes, of course, from the South Holland city of Gouda. If you’re in the country during summer, you can visit the traditional market, where you can see cheese trading in action. Another true cheese city is Alkmaar, in North Holland, where you can visit the cheese market. Both cities also have splendid historical buildings that are absolutely worth a visit.

Cities by the beach

Thanks to Holland’s long coastline, there are various resorts you can visit. For instance, from Amsterdam, you can very easily take a train to Zandvoort, and from The Hague, Scheveningen is a blink of an eye away. You could also try taking a look in Noordwijk. This chic place by the sea is also perfect if you wish to enjoy the gorgeous flower bulb fields in the area.

Atmospheric student cities

The presence of students always creates a great atmosphere in a city. Holland boasts a number of splendid cities with excellent universities. Thanks to the many students, those cities are always lively. Try visiting Leiden, for example, home to the oldest university in Holland. Eindhoven has a university of technology, which is part of the reason why this city is famous as the place to be for design. Also try visiting the cities of Nijmegen and Groningen, where, even if you’re not a student yourself, you can enjoy the student life.
