Having visited a number of cities in the Netherlands, I've discovered that many of them are very beautiful. These cities are the perfect place to relax and unwind and to take a break from the daily grind. They are located in various parts of the country and offer many different sights and attractions. This list is not an exhaustive list of the best cities in the Netherlands, but it's a great starting point.


Located between Den Helder and Amsterdam, Alkmaar is one of the most beautiful cities in the Netherlands. This little town is full of historic buildings, canals and canal houses. There are hundreds of municipal monuments and national heritage sites.

The city's main pedestrian street, Langestraat, is quiet at 9:30 in the morning but is very lively by night. It's also a great place to find shops and restaurants.

The old weighing house where cheese was sold is now the Cheese Museum. The building's roof received a certificate from GreenCalc for being carbon neutral.

Another popular attraction is the Medieval Garden. This park is filled with information on plants and flowers from all over Europe.


Despite its proximity to Amsterdam, Haarlem is often overlooked by tourists. That's a shame, because this beautiful city offers a quaint and medieval Dutch vibe. If you have a day to spend in Haarlem, there are plenty of things to see and do.


The main square, Grote Markt, is where you'll find several monumental buildings. Several shops and restaurants offer a range of food and drinks. In addition, the square also hosts events and concerts.

In the city centre, you'll also find the tulip market. The annual Flower Parade in the Bulb region features hundreds of different tulips. There's also a flower festival held on Grote Markt, which includes a colorful parade.

The city has a wide range of museums. The Teylers Museum is the oldest, and is also dedicated to one of the greatest Dutch painters of the 17th century. The museum is also the oldest scientific museum in the Netherlands. It specializes in natural history and science.
