|Historic towns, picturesque villages, a rural environment abounding with water, dunes and beaches: those are the typical ingredients of the Southern tour. And lets not forget the eighteen breathtaking mills in Kinderdijk.
This varied trip guarantees a striking introduction to the green and cultural heart of Holland.
On one day you will be roaming the centre of Haarlem, Leiden or 16th Century Delft, the next day you will cycle along the reedy borders of the Lek or Vecht river. In the historic towns there is time for visiting a museum (Frans Hals, Rembrandt and Van Gogh), shopping, or relaxation in an outdoor cafι. You will visit the beach and the dunes near The Hague by bike, just like many Dutch people. You will sail through the worlds largest seaport Rotterdam very appropriately by boat. Absolutely overwhelming are the eighteen mills in Kinderdijk driven by the wind and built around 1750. In 1997 they were put on the World Heritage List of the UNESCO. An optional canal tour by boat through Amsterdam will make this route complete.
Time for tulips
April and May are the tulip months. You can visit the Keukenhof for a few hours, a park full of hundreds of different tulips and many other flowers.
