Benelux attractions

Much of the swamp land in the Low Countries has been reclaimed, resulting in some of the largest water works in the world, such as the Delta Works, and in other attractions such as the windmills of Kinderdijk in South Holland. Much has not been reclaimed, resulting in interesting biotopes, such as the Zwin on the North Sea Coast of Belgium and the area around the Wadden Sea in the North of the Netherlands.
  • Look at some of the region's historic cities, including, but not limited to, Amsterdam, Antwerp, Bruges, Delft, Ghent, and Maastricht
  • Brussels is the so-called capital of the European Union; take a wander through the European Quarter with its modern architecture
  • The Netherlands has a bewildering amount of art museums—at least chip in the Museum Quarter in Amsterdam
  • Cheese markets are a big thing in Holland—Alkmaar, Edam, and Gouda have them
  • More Dutch stereotypes are to be found elsewhere; windmills in Zaanse Schans, tulips in the Keukenhof, and flat polders in the Green Heart
  • Flanders has many beguinages and belfries—a total of 46 have been inscribed in the UNESCO World Heritage List
  • The Delta Works, one of the most technologically advanced projects in the world, give an insight in the Dutch' centuries-long battle against the sea
  • So, what to see in Luxembourg? Try its capital of the name, with a splendid location high on a cliff, or Vianden, a tourist favourite with its stunning mediaeval Beaufort Castle.
