The Holland Festival is a yearly trend-setting and innovative presentation of the dramatic arts, and the highlight of the country's cultural season. Dance, music, theatre and opera performances are all on offer, meaning it truly covers the full spectrum of the arts. The festival also caters for a wide range of tastes, as attendees can expect to see everything from pop to high-drama. A street café on Leidseplein serves as the festival's centre.
Famous actors, authors and musicians mingle with the crowds, and Amsterdam's museums, theatres and galleries come alive with exciting exhibitions and performances. Travellers should check the festival's official website for details. Culture lovers could not pick a better time of year to visit the Netherlands. That said, they will need to book tickets and accommodation far in advance, as the festival is extremely popular.
