Holland's oldest city is a city of many faces, an island where everything is possible and everyone feels at home. Whether you are an early riser who wants to canoe through winding creeks in Nationaal Park de Biesbosch at dawn, cycle through the polders or have breakfast in the sun on a terrace in the historic heart of the city. It is an island where history lovers will enjoy the rich history and the more than one thousand (national) monuments, but where children also have a great time.
Where you can shop to your heart's content in stylish clothing boutiques and special shops full of antiques and curiosities, and where you can enjoy the many restaurants, (food) pubs and many other places like a Burgundian.
