Zuid- Holland

Things to do in Rotterdam, Netherlands | Cities to visit in Zuid-Holland, Netherlands

If you want to see what the maximum density of people in The Netherlands can be, than Zuid-Holland is your province. More than 3.6 million people are currently housed there, but don’t you worry, in Zuid- Holland is still enough space to feel alone. This province borders Zeeland, Noord-Brabant, Utrecht and Noord-Holland but has it’s own charm with cities as Leiden, Dordrecht and Rotterdam. The capital of Zuid-Holland is Den Haag, or what some people might call it The Hague or Haga.

Zuid-Holland is most known for its endless tulipfields around the Lisse area, however there are better things to do in this province than walking between many people who want to adore the tulipfields. Don’t get me wrong, it’s beautiful, but just too crowded. Zuid-Holland has beautiful small cities, that are even unkown to many Dutch people. They are cities where you will feel like you stepped into a timemachine. Until you look at your smartphone and realize you didn’t.

There are national parks and beautiful forests to explore and not to forget, beaches. Scheveningen is beautiful, but so are many others.

In my opinion Zuid-Holland is one of those provinces of extremes. It can be incredibly busy, but if you walk around one corner you can just end up in a meadow.
