Useful information if you’re moving to Holland (The Netherlands)
Holland has always been pictured as a romantic city and thoughts of clogs, windmills, canals and tulips just contribute to this image. Throughout history Holland has produced many renowned artists whose work can be seen in galleries around the world. The natural beauty of Holland’s landscapes was a blessing to artists like Anton Mauve and Holland has also celebrated the talents of other artists like Schaffer, Rembrandt, Blom and Mondrian. Dutch artists are still thrilling the cultural world, and one of the latest, video artist Fiona Tan, recently exhibited at Tate Modern in London.
Amsterdam is the capital city of Holland and it’s famous for many things, including Anne Frank’s house, its canals, some of the world’s narrowest houses and a flourishing diamond industry. It also hosts an annual International Fashion Week which has put Amsterdam firmly on the map in the fashion world.
As well as art and fashion, Holland is a big manufacturing country, exporting products as diverse as nuclear fuel materials, pharmaceuticals, petroleum products, medical equipment and wine.
Removals to Amsterdam
Amsterdam is a very popular tourist destination and it has many cultural delights, including over 60 museums and galleries, a famous network of canals and a vibrant nightlife. Amsterdam is one of the smallest cities in the world. It has an excellent public transport system but is also easy to get around by foot or bicycle as it is quite flat.
Removals to Rotterdam
Rotterdam is a port city and has a thriving shipping industry and the busiest harbour in Europe. It’s quite a young city, mainly because of the large student population. This has given Rotterdam a new energy and a modern culture that contrasts well with the diverse architecture and this is attractive to visitors from all over the world.
Removals to The Hague
Home to the Dutch Monarchy, The Hague – Den Haag – is where the Dutch Government and the Supreme Court are based. The third largest city in Holland, The Hague actually feels more like a capital city as it’s full of international embassies, wide boulevards, fountains and statues.
Removals to Utrecht
Utrecht is Holland’s transport hub and this has encouraged multinational corporations to open headquarters here, swelling the population to over 300,000, including many highly skilled workers. There is also a large student community in Utrecht. It is the fourth largest city in Holland. It’s a pleasant place to live and offers residents a high standard of living and excellent education opportunities.
Removals to Eindhoven
Eindhoven’s biggest claim to fame is that it was the headquarters of the Philips electronics company. The arrival of Philips to what was a small village transformed it to the city we see today, and even though much of the Philips organisation has moved elsewhere, its influence is still felt. Holland’s premier football team, PSV, is from Eindhoven and other tourist attractions include the Frits Philips Concert Hall, an Ice Sports Centre and De Tongelreep Swimming Paradise, which has wave machines, water slides and rapids.
Removals to Tilburg
Tilburg is perhaps the most multicultural city in Holland. Its 200,000 residents are from Holland, Europe and across the globe and the diversity is celebrated in the city. Tilburg is the sixth largest city in Holland and has every amenity possible, including high quality housing, schools and health care as well as open green spaces which are popular with cyclists.
