Tulips, cheese, clogs, and, of course, bicycles. The Netherlands, commonly referred to as Holland, is undoubtedly one of the most LGBTQ+-friendly countries in the world. Lesbian, gay and queer travelers will enjoy the multi-cultural vibe and friendliness of the Dutch people, especially in the capital Amsterdam, but also in Dutch cities like Rotterdam, Utrecht, Den Hague or Eindhoven. With LGBTQ+ events, colorful festivals and also traditional cultural highlights, LGBTQ+ travelers can plan a visit year-round. Some popular additions to a Dutch travel agenda are: the annual Canal (Gay) Pride in Amsterdam with its dozens of rainbow-decorated boats; the tulip blossoms, as the Netherlands is the world’s largest exporter of flowers; or the annual King's Day (Dutch Koningsdag), when local residents celebrate the king’s birthday all dressed in the Dutch national color, orange.
