Dutch Culture

Cheese, windmills and tulips are the most famous icons of our culture. But next to those, our culture has a lot more to offer..

Did you know?

  • The Netherlands and Holland are the same?
  • A quarter of The Netherlands is below sea level?
  • The Dutch are the tallest people in the world?
  • Amsterdam is built entirely on piles?
  • Everyone in The Netherlands has a bike and there are twice as many bikes as cars?
  • Amsterdam has 1.281 bridges?


The Dutch are considered to be good at speaking foreign languages. This is because The Netherlands has a high standard of education and an education system which focuses on the international position of the country. English teaching starts in the final two years of primary school and is an obligatory part of the national exam.
