COVID-19/ CORONA VIRUS IN THE NETHERLANDS
Unfortunately, the corona virus has also spread to The Netherlands. We are all urged to stay at home, unless it is for grocery shopping or a trip to the pharmacist. Almost everything is closed. No one knows how long the virus is planning on sticking around. For current updates on the corona virus, and measurements that are being taken in The Netherlands, have a look at this official Dutch government website.
So, no you shouldn’t travel to The Netherlands currently. But that doesn’t mean that you cannot get inspired. For now, I hope my The Netherlands travel blog will inspire you for your future trips to The Netherlands. Discover beautiful towns and cities in The Netherlands and dream away. Stay safe and at home (if you can). And hopefully you’re able to travel to The Netherlands again soon.

About 'Visiting The Dutch Countryside'
This is me. Manon.
I am the creative behind ‘Visiting The Dutch Countryside’, a travel blog about The Netherlands created by a born and raised Dutch citizen. I’ve been living 25 years in a country that has so much to offer, yet many foreign visitors don’t see the beauty. And that’s what I’m about to change with this travel blog about The Netherlands. Do you want to know more about my story? Have a look at that here.
The Netherlands is a country that is underrated in its whole. You have heard about The Netherlands and visited Amsterdam. That’s why you think you know The Netherlands. But no capital city is like the rest of the country. That’s like saying Washington D.C. is the representation of the U.S.A or that Jakarta is the representation of Indonesia. So, do you know The Netherlands?
Probably not. But we can fix this. If you are using my website, you will be guided through the less visited places of The Netherlands. Now you can enjoy The Netherlands like the locals do. One extra tip: Don’t call The Netherlands Holland.
Holland is a combination of the two provinces of Noord- Holland & Zuid- Holland. The Netherlands has twelve provinces in total and they don’t appreciate it when you call them as a part of Holland. The provinces in The Netherlands are: Utrecht, Gelderland, Noord- Brabant, Drenthe, Groningen, Friesland, Overijssel, Limburg, Flevoland, Zeeland, Noord- Holland and Zuid-Holland.
I have visited most of the places that you will find on my The Netherlands travel blog and guide with the use of public transport and/or bike. There are a few places that have no public transport available, but this is something that very rarely happens. So are you thinking of using public transport in The Netherlands? Please do so. It’s easy, saves you parking fees, gasoline and good for the environment.
I hope you all enjoy this travel blog about The Netherlands by a local. You can click through any photo in order to get to the pages and articles you are looking for.
