Top 3 Travel Tips for South Holland
Every child probably knows the famous Dutch cheese, which comes from the town of the same name. You should therefore visit Gouda in South Holland, perhaps as part of an extended cycle tour. The cheese is rather produced in the surrounding area, but in the city it is present in many places. During the summer months it is worth visiting the historical cheese market, which takes place every Thursday. Before Christmas the festival of lights 'Gouda bij Kaarslicht' attracts. By the way, Gouda is not only known for its cheese, but also for its candle makers, tobacco pipes and syrup waffles.Experience contrasting city flair in Rotterdam and The Hague
Due to the proximity of both cities, a vacation rental in a central location makes it possible to visit both destinations for a multifaceted day trip. The Hague presents itself rather magical and majestic, to which above all the historical architecture makes a visible contribution. Rotterdam, on the other hand, presents itself more as modern, partly avant-garde buildings that characterise the cityscape. Rotterdam is also home to one of the world's largest ports, another highlight.Colourful flower paradise Keukenhof
It may sound clichéd, but many holidaymakers associate Holland with tulips. Those who love the colourful blossoms should visit the famous Keukenhof near Lisse in spring to dive into an impressive sea of flowers. Beautiful photo motives are provided by lovingly arranged gardens. Hobby gardeners can also buy the latest breeds here to take home a piece of the splendour to be found from their holidays.
