Dutch Culture

Other Considerations

  • Although sometimes people refer to the entire country as ‘Holland’, this is incorrect. Holland is a region within the Netherlands where typical Dutch culture is found. Those who reside outside of Holland may take offence if they are referred to as ‘Hollanders’ as opposed to ‘Netherlanders’.
  • Many Dutch prefer cycling as a primary mode of transport. Indeed, bicycles are found throughout the Netherlands.
