My name is Marco and I’m the creator of Explore Holland. I am born and raised in the Netherlands and have been living in the Netherlands my whole life. This website came to be due to a lack of comprehensive and personal advice for visitors to my beautiful home country: The Netherlands (also known as Holland). I am an avid traveler and love to immerse myself in the culture of the countries I visit and found that locals usually have the best insight and hidden gems!

In my personal experience, travel tips from locals are often fantastic and genuine pieces of advice that get you off the beaten path and into the local side of things. My goal for this website is to provide you with those kinds of tips. So I hope you find exactly that, and if you don’t, don’t hesitate to let me know. If you have any questions, comments or suggestions, e-mail me through the form below, the contact page, or on Instagram: @ExploreHollandOfficial. I will read and do my best to reply to your message!

P.S. if you’re not sure about the difference between Holland and The Netherlands (and they’re mostly used interchangeably, so that’s totally understandable), check out the following video by CGP Grey:
