The Netherlands and Home Exchanges

If you are thinking to travel to The Netherlands, be sure to check out home exchange listings in The Netherlands.

The Netherlands is one of the 150 countries which you, as a member of, can contact in The Home Exchange Network. Currently (February 22, 2017), this network has 2,314  available home swap listings.

The Netherlands are commonly called “Holland” in English. The Netherlands (“Nederland” in Dutch) borders Germany to the east and Belgium to the south.

The population is about 16 million.

The capital of The Netherlands is Amsterdam, which has its own urban population of 1.2 million.

The Netherlands is about two times larger than New Jersey, with the highest population density of any European nation where its population exceeds 1 million.

The Netherlands is not only home to 16 million people, but it is home to more than 16 million bicycles as well.

If you are interested in art, you”ll be excited to know that the largest Van Gogh collection in the world is housed in the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam.

The land in this nation is flat, with over half of the land less than 1 meter above sea level. In fact, “Netherlands” means “low country.”

Both the people and the language of The Netherlands are referred to as “Dutch.”

The Netherlands is noted for its rivers and canals. In fact, we have a friend who did a home exchange where they stayed in a house boat in Amsterdam. Doesn’t that sound like fun?
