The rail trips through the Netherlands from Arena Rail Holidays will allow you to experience the many cultural delights of northern Europe’s most colourful nation. The sheer variety of activities that can be enjoyed in the Netherlands makes the country, justifiably, one of the world’s most popular travel destinations.

With a modest population of 17 million, the Netherlands has all the vibrant atmosphere of a dense population – without the congestion. The Dutch have a natural calmness to them and this is reflected in their liberal culture, where people are encouraged to explore their creativity and artistic interests, making Amsterdam a hub for artists and musicians.

The Netherlands by rail

The Netherlands is a very flat country, which makes travelling by rail an absolute delight. The smooth, stable rail system will allow you to experience all the tranquillity of traditional Dutch landscapes, such as the astonishing fields of colourful tulips, the dainty windmills and great lakes that decorate the picturesque country.

Fantastic cities

The Netherlands plays host to a number of beautiful towns and cities. You may be looking for a fun-filled stay in the more bustling Amsterdam, or a peaceful venture into the gorgeous and remote Valkenburg. Either way, the Netherlands is full of exciting things to see and do.

Food and drink

The Dutch culture promotes independence and self-sufficiency, and this is reflected in their cuisine: traditional Dutch food often consists of home-grown seasonal vegetables and fresh fish/meat. In 2014, Oxfam voted the Netherlands the country with the most nutritious food in the world.

Rich cultural history

The Dutch are encouraged to follow a healthy lifestyle and be unselfish in their goals. All of this translates into their cultural output. Almost a quarter of all Dutch citizens partake in regular, competitive sport, while others express themselves through art and literature. The Netherlands’ many museums and galleries look to celebrate the country’s cultural contributions — the Netherlands actually has the highest density of museums in the world!
