Overview

Amsterdam, the Hague and Rotterdam and their surrounding towns are so close together that the Dutch give the entire conurbation a name - the Randstad, meaning 'border city'. Despite their proximity, each retains a distinct charm. Amsterdam, the convivial hub of Dutch cultural life, The Hague, graceful and sedate, Rotterdam, modernist and lively, the quiet bookishness of Leiden, Utrecht, spruce and stately and Delft's leafy calm - all combine to paint a portrait of the Netherlands in bold and beautiful brush strokes. This guide contains intelligent and entertaining insights into history, architecture, culture and street life. There are discerning listings of hotels, restaurants, theaters, shops and markets as well as practical and reliable advice on getting about without a hassle. (5 3/4 x 8 1/4, 224 pages, maps)
