places to visit - hello everyone, i am going to be visiting holland in march for the first time. i have family that lives there and they asked me to get together a list of places i want to go. i have a few in mind and i am currently looking into other places to visit.

i wanted to ask anyone who lives in holland or has ever been there where the best places are to visit. i am not so interested in the "tourist" places, more the places with history.

thanks, danielle

hi! - Danielle I lived in the Netherlands for 3 years what part are you visiting? If you go to Amsterdam, you can visit the "Anne Frank" house. There are many musuems, castles and old churches. What are your specific interests?

- raygeo,
i know we are going to weesp. and the neighborhoods my grandfather and grandmother grew up in. i am staying with family there, so i have to learn some dutch.
i am pretty sure we will be walking through amsterdam. i would love to see anne franks house. castles and old churches really interest me. i would like to get on a boat and go through the waterways. of course i have to see the tulip fields.

- Katje, I'll be glad to help. Any questions, just message.

On topic, you might want to visit Utrecht. The city centre is really nice, and the cathedral tower is the biggest in the Netherlands. The cathedral itself was struck by a hurricane, but it's still worth to pay a visit.

- I found Leiden in Holland the cutest town, there was lots to see and it wasn't crowded with tourists as Amsterdam was.
