When travelling by ferry to the Netherlands, it is important to know which port you will be arriving or departing from. Amsterdam is a popular port for ferries from the UK, while Rotterdam and Hook of Holland are more often used for ferries from Scandinavia or Germany.

Once you have disembarked, there is plenty to see and do in the Netherlands. Amsterdam is of course famous for its canals, museums and lively nightlife. Rotterdam is a modern and vibrant city, with many contemporary buildings and fine restaurants. And don't miss the famous tulip fields at Keukenhof.

As well as natural beauty and bustling cities, the Netherlands also has a rich culture and fascinating history. Learn about the country's history at the Rijksmuseum or the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam, or visit the Maritime Museum in Rotterdam to learn more about the country's maritime history.

Holland: When is the best time to travel?

The best time to visit the Netherlands is generally in summer, from June to August. During this period, temperatures are pleasant, fluctuating between 20 and 25 degrees Celsius. The days are longer, which means more time to explore the beautiful Dutch cities, national parks and tulip fields. The temperatures are ideal for cycling along the canals, strolling through the bustling streets of Amsterdam or enjoying the summer activities organised throughout the country.

On the other hand, the worst time to travel in the Netherlands is winter, from December to February. Temperatures are cold, sometimes dropping below zero. It often rains and the days are short, which can limit the opportunities for outdoor visits. However, if you like the atmosphere of winter and Christmas markets, this is a good time to visit. Dutch cities are decked out in festive lights and decorations, creating a warm and friendly atmosphere.
