About Holland and Removals Holland

Holland is often called the ‘Gateway to Europe’ as a result of its waterway network, which links Belgium, France and Germany. It has a population of approximately 16.6 million people, making it a densely populated place to live and is one of the most crowded places in Europe.

The country is extremely flat with 27% of Holland being built on reclaimed land. This has led to the immense sprawl of dykes throughout the country, for which it is now famous.
It’s a culturally rich place and has many of the world’s most famous artists including Rembrandt, Vermeer, Van Gogh and Mondrian.

Property Prices and Removals Holland

The property market in Holland took a big hit during the global financial crisis with prices falling and the housing market becoming stagnant over a period of several years. Now that the Dutch economy is growing stronger and as confidence increases, property in Holland is becoming a strong investment once again.

You can currently expect to pay approximately 5200 € per square meter to buy an apartment in a city centre. Outside the centre the prices drop to 3000 €.

Leisure Activities and Removals Holland

The many cities across Holland are world-renowned for their lively nightlife and diverse range of entertainment and leisure facilities, including numerous pubs, nightclubs, bars and cafes, theatres, cinemas and casinos. Holland has the highest concentration of museums in the world!

Cycling is the most common form of transport and there is at least one bicycle per head of population and 15,000 km of cycle paths. The flat terrain is conducive to both cycling and walking and this helps to reduce traffic congestion in the towns and cities. Ice skating is also very popular when the canals and ponds freeze over during the winter.

Schools and Removals Holland

The education provision is of a very high standard in Holland.

All children who live in Holland are entitled to attend public school. Teaching standards are generally high and schools are efficiently run, although you may find them more laid back than schools in the UK.
There are plenty of private and international schools available, and these institutions are often the best option for older children or those who won’t be staying long.

Useful Tips and Removals Holland

1. Learn the language. Ideally anyone moving to Holland should consider learning the language and whilst this is not necessary, most Dutch speak English very well, it will help with making friends and ensure that you do not miss information on posters and adverts hanging in shop windows might carry vital information, especially when looking for work or entertainment. There are several options for learning Dutch; either consider taking private individual lessons or enrol on an intensive course at a language centre and university.
2. Rent before you buy. Once you have found where you think you want to settle, take a few months to `test drive’ the area to be sure that you can live there. Holidaying is not the same experience as living. Renting a property for at least 6 months will enable you to get a feel your chosen area.
3. Shake hands. In Holland it is usual for people to introduce themselves by shaking hands and then stating their name, in much the same way as here in the UK. Local people in Holland usually eat dinner early, so unless you are invited to call between 6pm and 7pm, this time is best avoided, as you will most likely be interrupting dinner.
4. Make an effort to find new friends. The fun part is establishing a social network. Don’t just rely on your partner or family. Immerse yourself in the Dutch culture, mix and make friends with locals as well as other expats. Mixing with people will enrich your experience and help you have a fun and a successful future in Holland.
