Every year, Amsterdam welcomes loads and loads of visitors. According to some, it can even get a bit too crowded. Fortunately, more and more visitors discover that there is great beauty and excitement outside of the city as well. That’s the reason, for example, that the seaside town of Zandvoort is called “Amsterdam Beach” nowadays. When it comes to nature, the Muiderslot, Waterland and the Keukenhof attract a lot of attention.
The same goes for the villages and cities in the vicinity of Amsterdam. Many visitors include the beauty, as well as the relaxation and spaciousness of Greater Amsterdam in their travel plans. B&B Hendricus is located in the heart of Greater Amsterdam, nestled between the Capital, Zandvoort, Haarlem and the flower bulb district. From the B&B the beauty of Holland is just a stone-throw away.
