Travel Inspiration: The Low Countries: Middle Ages & Modern Kingdoms in the Netherlands & Belgium
There’s high culture in the Low Countries—specifically the Netherlands and Belgium. Think Rembrandt and Vermeer, for instance. (The largest collection of the latter, by the way, will be exhibited at Rijksmuseum in Spring 2023. Mark your calendar!)
But beyond the painted canvas, the region has much, much more to offer. There are medieval towns, windmills, gardens, lace, canals, mussels and frites…
We suggest you fly into Amsterdam, capital city of the Netherlands. On a walking tour, see some of Amsterdam’s 17th century architectural treasures in the historic city center. Enter several private homes along Amsterdam’s Golden Bend before exploring the spectacular treasure room of the de Bazel Building, now home to the Amsterdam City Archives. Where to next?
During our 11-day travel itinerary across the Netherlands and Belgium, we explore Amsterdam, Otterlo, the Hague & Delft, Aalsmeer, Haarlem, Valkenburg & Leiden, Margraten, and Maastricht, Brussels, Ghent, and Bruges.
