The Netherlands may be known as a flat nation, but while it may lack mountains there is no shortage of beautiful scenery.
One of the best natural attractions is De Maasduinen National Park in Limburg province. It follows the Meuse river along the border with Germany, an area that boasts woodlands, sand dunes and marshy fens.
Lauwersmeer National Park also sits on a river, this time separating the provinces of Groningen and Friesland in the northern Netherlands. Hundreds of birds migrate to this biologically rich river delta, and you can even spot wild horses grazing.
De Grote Peel is a natural marshland renowned as one of the best spots in Europe for bird watching. It’s a peat bog preserved throughout history, so you can see nature exactly as it always has been.
De Biesbosch is another great natural attraction, and one of the last freshwater tidal wetlands in western Europe. It is home to beautiful winding rivers lined by willow trees, with many species of aquatic and amphibious animals living in the foliage.
Utretchtse Heuvelrug National Park is the second-largest forest in the country and fills the gap between Utrecht and Veenendaal. Its most distinctive feature is a large ridge formed during an ice age some 100,000 years ago.
