Old Holland

With its windmills, green landscapes, arts and crafts, and industrial heritage, discovering Old Holland feels like taking a step back in time. The region showcases the traditions The Netherlands first became famous for: shipbuilding, clogs, fishing and cheese making. You can also experience the heritage of the Dutch Industrial Revolution – a time when smoking chimneys and spinning sails enabled the mass production of goods.
