Our Experiences: This country is a paradise for painting lovers. How could master artists such as Van Gogh, Rembrandt, Hieronymus Bosch, Mondrian and Van Dyck come all from the same small country ? We may spend a whole trip just seeing their paintings. The gastronomy is also superb. In downtown Amsterdam you may have a 3-course refined menu for less than 30 Euros. And, for the open minded, there are several coffee shops offering maijuana cakes. One thing that always made us impressed is the engineering behind the dams and sustainable energy generation. It is almost like an attraction apart.
Hotels we love and recommend: – Renaissance (Amsterdam )
