The location of Kleve is fragmented in Germany and Holland. In the Dutch part, you will be able to visit the museum Het Valkhof, which reunites in its interior a beautiful collection of contemporary art and a magnificent collection of old art. These concentrate mainly in the illustrious history of Nijmegen and the castle Charlemagne' s Valkhof.

There everything what it is due to know about the Roman army and the style of life of people in the bigger Roman city in Holland, well-known is learned at the moment like Nijmegen.

Light of Marken

One of great the attractiveness of a country as Holland is in the pintoresquismo of many of its towns and cities. It had always dreamed about enjoying those houses of aligned colors next to which it had seen in so many Dutch postal. They imagined to me almost small and of chocolate. Something as well as what I could see in a so wonderful and colorful place as Marken.

Marken is to only 22 kilometers to the north of Amsterdam, reason why is a very interesting excursion. Multicoloured houses of wood, channels, mills… everything what one imagines of Holland is in Marken. Memory with nostalgia the last visit that I did in this small city. Seated watching at the horizon and the sea, and back the straight figure of its light.

The Light of Marken was first that was constructed in Holland in century XVIII, although was not finished absolutely by Valk architect until 1839. The inhabitants of know it to Marken like Paard, that in Dutch means “horse literally?, say that due to the form that she has, since in the back part of the light there is back-to-back a small small house that simulates the back of the horse.

Hotel Rembrandt Centrum

The name of the hotel already gave to understand two very clear things us: the first memory to one of the majors artists whom Holland has given, Mr. Rembrandt, and second, very interesting at the time of traveling, the centric location of our lodging. The Hotel Rembrandt Centrum is right in the channel of Herengracht, to less than ten minutes on foot of the Place Dam and the Central station.

A classic hotel of three stars, perfectly located, very cerquita of the best atmosphere of the city, with stores, bars and restaurants to ours around. In addition, at the time of reserving to ask if the rooms with a view to the channel are available. The hotel is precious, in an elegant building of century XVII, totally reformed by all means.

Kralingse You

I have always heard say that Rotterdam is not indeed far from it the prettiest city of Holland. Perhaps due to being a city industrialist, is certain a little that she can not be as colorful as others from the country. Nevertheless, he is worth the pain to approach up to here to see the other face of the currency of the tourism in Holland.

And if we are in Rotterdam we must ourselves give to a stroll by the Kralingse You, the Kralingse Park, so that we are understood. One is an enormous park that surround to an artificial lake, and to that come the majority from inhabitants from Rotterdam to enjoy giving a stroll or to practice some type of sport.

A hoisted forest ideal to almost spend a day of beach in Rotterdam. In the lake we can bathe, to go with our canoe and to row a little, having precious views of Rotterdam from the lake, and also we can go to the park with the idea to spend a knocked down day of barbecue to the slight Dutch sun. Without going more far it is the greatest park of Rotterdam.

Airport of Eindhoven

The airport of Eindhoven is located in the city that takes the same name, within the province of Brabant. Every day of the week direct flights take place towards 12 different destinies within Europe, like London Stansted, London Heathrow, Paris, Hamburg and Zurich, among others. One is 10 minutes of the center of Eindhoven and one specializes mainly in useful scales for people of businesses.

Originally, this establishment was a base of the Air Force, but through the years it has evolved enormously because of the economic airlines. Nevertheless, still is the military part of the airport and takes the name of Welschap.

With respect to the transports from and towards the airport, it is necessary to know that railway connections with him do not exist. Also, there is a bus that goes to the Central station in Eindhoven, where excellent connections with the other Netherlands can be found. For example, the bus line 45 or the 401, that divides each approximately 15 minutes for the center and, the route, is only of 20 minutes.

Spanjaardsgat

If we threw a small look to history of Breda, is like becoming a little crazy. I imagine to the poor inhabitants of the city since the end of century XVI in the middle of the XVII, because they happened almost at the hands of Dutch Spaniards and without finding out.

In 1581 Felipe II the Spanish conquest for feudo, but nine years later returns to comprise of the Dutch dominions.

The Spaniards erre who erre we managed in 1625 to occupy Breda again, occasion that immortalized Vela'zquez in its picture the Surrender of Breda. Nevertheless, in 1637 he returned again to Dutch hands. As they would now have at that time the same problems of administrative red tape with the Social Security that, I am not wanted nor to imagine…

zandvoor beach

Who visit Amsterdam has the opportunity not only to admire the delicate urbanism of those channels and aged buildings that hide true artistic treasures. To its disposition it is also the possibility of going to the beach, after all we are in August, and in particular to one of the most wanted beaches of Holland.

One is Zandvoor aan EEZ: that enormous one boulevar playero of Zandvoor, municipality of Northern Holland. The service that connects the beach with the center of Amsterdam offers the Beach call Bus, a bus that leaves the Damrak street with several daily frequencies to take to tourists and travellers until the same Zandvoor aan EEZ.

The service includes in addition an explanatory guide who allows to take advantage of the trip to the maximum, with data about the beach and of the city of Zandvoor. On the other hand, at the time of buying the ticket the possibility of paying I supplement that also exists it includes things like the rent of bicycles, entrances for the Holland Casino of Zandvoor or the Museum of the municipality.

Besides in bus there is a more attractive alternative perhaps to go to the beach from Amsterdam: in ferry or, rather, boat motorboat if we consider the speed that reaches: 65 kilometers per hour!
This connection by water is, nevertheless, not with Zandvoor, but with IJmuiden, locality that is to about 16 kilometers over Haarlem. The service calls Fast Flying Ferry, which is not to be strange, seeing that more than of boat the speed it is of airplane. Reason why it seems enjoys much.

The boat leaves wharf 14, located just behind the Central station of Amsterdam and arrives until the own Pontplein, situated place in Velsen-Zuid. Velsen is the municipality in which is the town, or if you want city, of IJmuiden. That last section of the trip is realized, again, in a Beach Bus.

And, for that they travel to Amsterdam with the intention to enjoy she herself without having to walk of here for there, to remember well that this year the city celebrates its Water Sensations, a species of thematic year (the subject, obvious, is the WATER) whose climax (anticipated: soon never it is known) in the second fortnight of August.

The program that is developed from the 1 of January is ample and varied, involving architectonic exhibitions, appointments, playful activities, better etc. In short, I leave the official page you of the tourism office in which they inform to you into all the events.
