Stay in Amsterdam, But Visit These Places

There is so much more to the Netherlands, home of Douwe Egberts. Today, we will highlight a few other cities in Holland that are travel-worthy, and of course, always serving Douwe Egberts at the best spots!

Amsterdam is the 13th most-visited city in Europe by overnight tourists, but trust us when we say it is not the only place to visit if you are in the Netherlands for a day.

For instance, Rotterdam is the second-largest city, and has a very modern look and feel since being rebuilt after WW II. The unusual and innovative architecture includes floating houses, offices and a farm; an artistic cabled bridge nicknamed “The Swan”; the Art Nouveau Witte Huis (White House); the Markthal, a ginormous market hall with a ceiling that in itself is a work of art (see below); and, for something really on the nose, the Cool District, lined with eclectic shops and restaurants.

Rotterdam-Delft-Sights

If you love quaint, then you must stop in Delft. Home to the classic blue-and-white ceramics crafted in the area since the 1600’s, the original intent of the work was to emulate Chinese porcelain. Shops line the canals with a range of Delftware and other souvenirs. The town once served as the base of the ruling House of Orange, and you can visit the ancestral family church, Nieuwe Kerk (New Church), which overlooks the town’s market square. The gothic tower of the church stands over the tombs of the princes and princesses of the House of Orange.

Visit The Hague to see the seat of the Netherlands’ government and home to the royal family. The Hague is a center of global business too, so many expats live there. You’ll find a vast culinary scene influenced by the many home countries of the residents and several museums, all outstanding in their own right. See the Royal Picture Gallery, the world’s largest Mondrian collection, a spectacular private car collection, and of course, the history of the city and its people.

Coffee In The News

Self-Driving Car Gets Insured

We recently wrote about the first group of shared self-driving cars being planned for use in the Netherlands. Now the first car insurance company in the Netherlands has stepped up to insure the self-drivers. The company is already the largest car insurer in the country, and predicts this new plan will turn the car insurance market on its head. That is, insurance premiums will no longer be based on accident history. Plans include remediation for the electronics and software used in the car when accidents occur.

Holland or Netherlands? Both Know Coffee!

[Another in our series on great coffee places.]

Recently, we heard some people talking about visiting Holland. After hearing more, we realized what they really meant was that they were traveling to the Netherlands.

Some people refer to the country of the Netherlands as “Holland” but that is not accurate.

Holland, to the Dutch, refers to the 2 provinces of North- and South-Holland (highlighted in orange, the country color). The Kingdom of the Netherlands is comprised of 12 provinces, and refers to the entire nation. Although they are used interchangeably, now you know which is which.

We enjoy writing about the Netherlands, because that is where Douwe Egberts began and still exists there more than 260 years later.

We know you enjoy Douwe Egberts too, so we are offering 10% off all our Douwe Egberts and Senseo products with no minimum order. at http://www.EnjoyBetterCoffee.com.*
