    Fields of colour

    by ayesh Written May 18, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Instead of going to the well-known Keukenhof to see the flowers bloom (where you can indeed see many, many different types of flowers!!) in early spring (depending on the weather, around April\May) you can also see colourful fields of tulips and other beautiful flowers next to the roads. They are taken care of by farmers and are private lands. Sometimes however it is possible to come really close. You can always ask if you're allowed to walk into the fields, between the lengthly rows of tulips, and take some pictures. There are certain regions where there are lots of these fields, such as the area between Egmond and Bergen, but this is not the only one. Just drive around while you're there anyway and focus on colour. You won't be able to miss it when you're close by!!!

    Velsen-Zuid: an amputated beauty

    by OlafS Written Feb 25, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Part of this village has completely vanished and was replaced by a big canal. But the old church is still there, an interesting Romanesque building from the 12th century. Other sights in the village are two manors.

    Naarden: a fortified town

    by OlafS Written Feb 25, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    A small fortified town full of nice old buildings including a magnificent town hall. The church has remarkably preserved medieval painted wooden vaults. A museum is dedicated to Czech theologist Comenius who is buried in the chapel next to it.

    by OlafS Written Feb 25, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Internationally famous architect W.M. Dudok spent much of his career being Hilversum's municipal architect. He turned a small agricultural village into a true city, designing entire neighbourhoods, schools and, his most famous work, the town hall.

    Why, your first port of call in the province should - no, make it must! - be the free city of Amsterdam.

    have you ever been inside a windmill? Well.. those guys who used to live there were really tough.. a little space, cold and dump air plus that noise.. but the hardest was probably the work there..

    Mill

    Where would this province have been without mills? Half off it would be under water. So i am glad they are there.
