Between Amsterdam, Rotterdam and The Hague, there are beautiful landscapes and quite a lot of green to discover. You are looking for mountains and hills in vain and so are extended trips on beautiful flat paths for everyone a treat. In spring, you will be greeted by extensive tulip fields, for example on the Keukenhof, where you will be pampered with the most intense colors and the most fragrant plants will enchant your senses. The entire park is wheelchair compatible and a feast for all nature lovers.
Museums and canals next to ornate houses
Amsterdam is on the front line of Dutch tourist attractions. The unique canal belt, which runs through the old town like a spider web and the city brings more bridges than Venice, should not be missed. A romantic ride through the canals of Amsterdam is offered by some providers as easily accessible and wheelchair accessible, although you should inform the organisers in advance. The famous museums, such as the Rijksmuseum, which is the Dutch National Museum, and the Van Gogh Museum are both fully wheelchair accessible, and offer cultural enjoyment of the highest quality in their extensive collections.
Openlucht and windmills

Open-air museums, known in the Netherlands as Openluchtmueen, lure visitors throughout the country with their magnificent facilities and historic buildings.
