Summer in The Netherlands

The Netherlands is a great country to visit during summer. Small villages and towns are bustling, and their museums and restaurants are open. Festival season in The Netherlands is also in full swing during summer, and it is time to explore the best beaches and islands in The Netherlands. Besides that, the weather and temperature in The Netherlands from June until September are perfect for travelling around. This is also why I have created a guided bike tour through the Dutch countryside this summer (see you soon!). 

Of course, travelling to The Netherlands in summer does have a few downsides: July and August are the high seasons in The Netherlands. This means that accommodation in The Netherlands, as well as guided tours and activities, are earlier fully booked and more expensive. And there will be more people than during the other seasons (except for tulip season in The Netherlands)

But that’s okay; it just takes a bit of planning, which I can help you with. I love the summer season in the country as there are plenty of great things to do in The Netherlands during summer. Happy travels!
