Below is a list for Netherlands:
  1. Amsterdam – Must visit city: Canal tour, Red light district, Dam Square, Madame Tussauds (wax museum), Anne Frank Museum
  2. Kukenhof tulip garden (open only in April/May) – Must visit: An overdose of variety of colorful flowers; you can also drive around the area to see tulip fields
  3. Maduradam – Must visit: Miniatures of major monuments in Netherlands
  4. Zaanse Schans – Must visit: Windmills along the bank of a canal, cheese factory, clog factory. Walk from the train station gives better views than drive
  5. Giethoorn (Venice of Netherlands) – very nice: go on a warm day, rent a motor boat
  6. Maastricht – very nice visit: walk around the city to see lots of old monuments (there are also some mine caves a little further from the city)
  7. Kinderdijk –> similar to Zaanse Schans, but unless you want to see it the heritage way with only windmills, Zaanse Schans is much better
  8. Rotterdam –> Very nice visit
  9. Volendam – cheese factory, a nearby Island –> Very nice visit
  10. Zeeland – Veere is a nice village; Renesse and Dombug are known for sand dunes and beach –> Good
  11. Eindhoven Karpendonske lake – time pass
  12. Cycling to the villages….example – Eindhoven to Son en Brugel

    Hi Madhu,

    Great blog!
    I am travelling to Eindhoven for work for about a week after which my parents are joining me for a short holiday in Amsterdam and France. We are vegetarians and I was wondering
    – If we get some home made cooked dry food with us (theplas, parathas etc) then do you think it would cause problems at customs?
    – Also are there vegetarian restaurants in Eindhoven that would deliver food to my office?

    Looking forward to your reply 🙂

      Hi Neha,
      – I don’t expect any issues for dry food. I have carried multiple times without problems.
      – In Amsterdam, there are caterers who deliver food to office. But I’m not aware of such service in Eindhoven. Also…there is only 1 veg restaurant in Eindhoven – Ganesh. If you have more people in your office looking for this service, I can check with one of my contacts who might be interested in starting such a service.
