Dutch Countryside and Windmills

If you ask anybody about what pops up in their head when they think of The Netherlands, most people’s minds will drift to windmills, tulip fields and the lively center of Amsterdam. Its picturesque canals, historic buildings, exotic nightlife, and open-minded culture stand out. And while Amsterdam is undeniably one of the country’s most fascinating tourist attractions, the scenic Dutch countryside and windmills in the surroundings are often overlooked.
