The Netherlands is a constituent country of the Kingdom of the Netherlands, located mainly in North-West Europe. Mainland Netherlands borders the North Sea to the north and west, Belgium to the south, and Germany to the east, and shares maritime borders with Belgium, Germany and the United Kingdom. The capital is Amsterdam and the seat of government is The Hague.
The Netherlands has numerous attractions to make your stay one of the most fun and unforgettable trips of your life. From Musea, such as the Van Gogh Museum, Rijksmuseum and the Anne Frank Museum, to fun-parks like Madurodam, Neeltje Jans and the world-famous Flowerfields. And then there are also countless water sports facilities, historical squares, lively markets and, of course, the notorious Red Light District and coffeeshops.
The predominant wind direction in the Netherlands is southwest, which causes a moderate maritime climate, with cool summers and mild winters. This is especially the case with places within direct proximity of the Dutch coastline, which sometimes are over 10 °C (18 °F) warmer (in winter) or cooler (in summer) than places in the (south)east of the country.

Wining and Dining
Here you find a selection of Amsterdam's best restaurants, whether you fancy traditional Dutch cuisine, Mediterranean, Asian – or even Basque tapas.
Restaurant De Vijff Vlieghen
Good food, great wines, unique interior, this restaurant is a culinary museum, situated in the centre of Amsterdam, near the floating flowermarket and adjoining the Amsterdam canals. You can have dinner whilst sitting under 4 original Rembrandt etchings, antique Delft blue tiles and rare 17th century glassware.
Restaurant De Kas
De Kas, meaning greenhouse in Dutch, is housed in an enormous glasshouse: one half for eating, the other for growing the fruit and vegetables that end up on your plate. If your food wasn't produced here, it will come from the surrounding garden or a nearby farm.
Blauw is on the up-and-coming Amstelveenseweg, and the design – split level with low-slung lighting and mood decor – gives it the edge over its more traditional Indonesian competitors. But its trendy interior and cool crowd don't detract from the fact that the food is exquisite.
While in Amsterdam don't miss a night out at the original Supperclub restaurant. It's an amazing dining experience where you recline on beds and are entertained by artists and musicians throughout the four course surprise meal. A real thrill!
Restaurant “Haesje Claes”
A restaurant situated in the historical center of Amsterdam, between the Spui and the Dam square, across from the Amsterdam Museum. The restaurant occupies six, epic buildings, in which the original architectural features such as little steps, corridors and hallways all have been preserved. Likewise, the exterior of the building is a beautiful example of traditional Dutch architecture. All chambers are breathing a century old ambiance, perfectly suited for a comfortable and casual lunch or dinner.
Restaurant Pata Negra
This is an authentic Spanish restaurant with the hams hanging from the ceiling run by Spaniards. Although crowded it is very efficient and serves great Spanish tapas.
