Zuid-Holland Travel Guide
Login to edit Login to view History
Zuid-Holland is a very divers province in the West of the Netherlands. You will find big cities here like Rotterdam -with lots of modern architecture and the biggest harbour of the world - and The Hague (Den Haag or s-Gravenhage), a chic city with the seat of government of the country and the seat of the International Court of Justice.
Highlights are the old towns with many 17th-century buildings, like Gouda (taste chees and don't miss the St. Janchurch), majestic Delft (canals), Leiden with its old university and Dordrecht's old ships and harbours.
Although Zuid-Holland is one of the most densely populated and industrial parts of The Netherlands, you can still find a lot of empty fields in the Green Heart, the area surrounded by the main Dutch cities of the 'Randstad'. On the coast, like in Voorne-Putten, you find the unique nature of the dunes, but also the glass house industry of the Westland.
