When you visit the small country the Netherlands most people tend to stay only in Amsterdam, but this city is not typically Dutch. Amsterdam is well known for its many tourists who want to see a peek of the extrovert Dutch capital. You may as well stay in Amsterdam and take advantage of those wonderful museums and breathe the particular international atmosphere of the “Venice of the North”, but as the country is rather small, you can hop on and hop off the train at any time you want and visist other pearls. If you want to see something typically Dutch you want to see the windmills, Madurodam (which is a miniature city located in Scheveningen, The Hague, in the Netherlands. It is a model of a Dutch town on a 1:25 scale). The Netherlands is not only famous for its windmills but also for the tulips. What is typically Dutch and a must see for every tourist will be the ‘Keukenhof’, the world’s largest flower garden with approximately 7,000,000 flower bulbs which are planted annually in the park. This park is open from the spring season.
