Because Holland is home to Douwe Egberts, we love keeping up with the news and events of this small but industrious country. While there are always cultural and social happenings in The Netherlands, September brings the celebration of Heritage Days (Open Monumentendag, as the Dutch say). This event is always the second weekend of September, where historical buildings and sites open their doors to the public, usually free of charge. More than 80 percent of Dutch towns participate in the event, organized by local groups. Often included in the celebrations are on-site activities, including art and other exhibitions, concerts and guided tours. It can be a tough choice about where to go: The Hague reflects the political center of the country; Maastricht shows off its medieval churches; Amsterdam has canal houses and Gouda has a beautiful city hall. So many sites, so little time.

You can celebrate Dutch Heritage too with a cup of Douwe Egberts coffee. When you order Douwe Egberts products at, get 10% off with orders of $30 or more.*
