If you would like to experience the best the Netherlands has to offer, there’s no better way of doing so than a school trip to the delightful Dutch coast. With a number of popular beach resorts scattered along its vast shoreline, you can rest assured that a school trip to the Dutch coast will provide you with a warm and welcoming break that will combine both leisure and learning.
The Coastal town of Noordwijk will provide you with an excellent base from which you will be able to explore the region. Formerly an old fishing village, Noordwijk has grown substantially over the years thanks to the thousands of tourists it attracts every year. It's location means that it is within reasonable travelling distance of some of Netherlands biggest cities including Amsterdam and Rotterdam along with Utrecht and The Hague. If you would prefer to stay nearby however, Noordwijk has plenty to offer. Visit its stunning Bulb Fields and take in the vast palette of colours on show from the different plants, step into the inspiring Space Expo and experience a simulated launch of an Ariane rocket or simply relax on its beach which has been honoured with the blue flag and quality coast awards.
When visiting the Dutch Coast, we recommend spending at least a day in the countries capital, Amsterdam due to the wide range of educational excursions it offers. The Anne Frank House, Jewish Historical Museum, Auschwitz Memorial, Dutch Resistance Museum and many other attractions may appeal to students studying history of any level and help gain a deeper understanding of Holland and how it was affected by World War II. Art students will find the Van Gogh Museum, Rijksmuseum and Rembrandt Museum extremely inspiring as they get a chance to see some of the work from the Dutch’s greatest artists. These are just a few of the subjects covered by the city which is perfect for educational learning.
