The weather in Holland

Holland, with its long North Sea coast, has a typically moderate marine climate. The sea’s influence ensures that we are not too cold during winter, not too hot during summer, and there is always sufficient moisture in the air for a shower. So if you plan to visit Holland, it would be wise to keep this in mind. Put the right clothing in your suitcase so you are covered if there’s an afternoon rainfall and make sure you always have a critical opinion about the weather... Just like the Dutch do!
