Culture, history, and unspoiled coasts in North Holland

From the cosmopolitan city of Amsterdam to the charming towns along the North Sea, North Holland is a diverse and lively area. Staying in one of the many North Holland vacation rentals allows you to spend time in the Dutch capital, exploring the museums and historic homes. Amsterdam's art galleries are full of iconic works from Van Gogh to Mondrian. Not far from the city are vast national parks, set on a coastline made up of plains and sand dunes. Here you'll find long stretches of sandy beach, and small traditional Dutch towns featuring characteristic windmills.

Things to do

Discover North Holland's coastal areas

Along the coast, North Holland has a number of areas of natural beauty to explore. Kennemerduinen an der Nordsee, near Zandvoort, is a national park with gentle green hills inhabited by wild sheep and ponies. Its trails lead to a coastal playground of wild sandy beaches and calm seas. In Egmond aan Zee, you'll find the Nordholländisches Dünenreservat, a large nature reserve covered in sand dunes that's next to the sea. There are hiking and biking trails through the area, and you can rent electric bikes to zip along the promenade.

Activities

Explore North Holland's stylish cities and small towns

Amsterdam is often the starting point for exploring North Holland, and, if you're short on time, then a walking tour is a popular way to see the highlights.

North Holland vacation rentals offer access to the area's small towns, so why not head for the North Sea Coast and visit Volendam? This old fishing village is now home to a vibrant cultural scene, including galleries of Dutch artwork, and a variety of live music venues.
