Holland above Amsterdam, the best Holland has to offer. Moulded by our ancestors through unremitting labour. Windmills, dykes, polders, historical and modern villages and cities. The rich nature gives the area colour. We are happy to share our part of the world with you. Get to know the endless possibilities and it's friendly, welcoming and straightforward inhabitants.
Every year a colorful parade of beautiful floats drives through Zwaag. This is one of the largest parades in Holland above Amsterdam.
On the West coast, you will find the most beautiful beaches against the backdrop of the highest dunes, woods, heathlands, sea and sand drifts. Beyond the dunes there are vast polders, which in the spring are covered with colourful fields of flowers. Perfect for long and enjoyable bike- rides and hikes.
In the East, you can visit historical cities and towns with picturesque canals. Great for shopping, cultural outings and relaxing at an outdoor café. Walk through the centuries-old alleys and beautiful streets.
Everything is located conveniently nearby: in just forty minutes you can drive from the North Sea to the IJsselmeer coast and the capital of Amsterdam is located within a stone's throw.
