What are the Netherlands visa/passport requirements?
If you’re planning to spend less than 90 days in the Netherlands/the Schengen area, you can get by using just your U.S. passport–no Visa required. (Except for all those stroopwafels you’re planning on buying, ba-dum-tshh!)
However, your passport must be valid for at least 6 months from the date you leave the Schengen area.
What language do they speak in the Netherlands?
In the Netherlands, Dutch is the primary language spoken.
Where to stay in the Netherlands
The capital of Amsterdam is worth the visit alone, but the Netherlands is packing tourism destinations out the wazoo.
When you decide where in the Netherlands you want to visit, I recommend reading hotel reviews on Tripadvisor, then booking your room through Booking.com (my favorite booking site).
– Travel insurance. I never travel internationally without it and I highly recommend the company I always use: World Nomads.
