The Netherlands guide

Latest articles

The city of Amsterdam is more than just canals and Rembrandt. Whether you love the beauty of the ballet or prefer a more hard-rock vibe, there is something for everybody in and around this lovely city.

Dutch culture is very much about having and doing things in the right order, in the right place. They’re not afraid to cut loose now and then and have a wild time provided that it’s a time and place you’re supposed to party. The word nette – translated loosely as “neat”, with overtones of propriety and a certain formality – is a good summation of the overall sense of Dutch culture and lifestyle.

So you’ve gotten your visas straightened out, the plane ticket is booked, you’ve got a place arranged, and soon, you’ll be on your way to living in the Netherlands. Moving to the Netherlands can get complicated if you have a lot of furniture you want to take with you, or perhaps a pet.

Bringing pets into the Netherlands can be an intimidating task. There are a number of rules that must be followed before you are allowed to bring your pet into the Netherlands with you. The Netherlands is a rabies-free country, and some extra precautions are in place to keep it that way.

Exploring Amsterdam is an overwhelming task – which sites to see first? Which museums to visit, which restaurants to try, which stores to shop at? But getting around in Amsterdam, fortunately, is easy and pleasant.

Alice in the Netherlands

5 years ago

Expat Life, Dutch society, Italian culture My name is not Alice, but Linda. And I am not lost in Wonderland, but in the country of tulips and windmills. I am an Italian expat working as a copywriter for an e-commerce company. When I accepted the job offer in Utrecht, I started a bilingual (ITA & ENG) blog talking about my experience. The blog talks about the Expat Life, Dutch society, Italian culture, and explains in detail how to apply for a job in the Netherlands, go through a selection process, and all the practical stuff you need to accomplish (from finding a house to getting a BSN or 30% ruling).

Observations of a serial expat now in Hong Kong. Four international moves and I still enjoy gawking at (and sometimes still being the cause of) cultural collisions. Join me in my search for both the absurd and the inspirational sides of expat life. There are always hard days (months!), but it\'s a hell of a ride and I feel lucky to have had the chance. Comics, photographs, stories!
