Discover the Netherlands sights

There are so many sights in the Netherlands that our neighboring country always attracts us. We introduce you to three villages in North Holland that fulfill all the clichés you have as a first-time visitor to Holland. You shouldn't miss the Zuidersee Museum. There you can see how people used to live in Holland. Rotterdam and Amsterdam are big cities to discover. So far, however, we have traveled more in the country and the islands. Texel fascinates us.
