"Here's something that..." Netherlands Local Custom Tip by Aphrodite21

Netherlands Local Customs: 288 reviews and 290 photos

<font color=#CC6600 face=tahoma>Here's something that completely took me by surprise: <b>A lot of tourist attractions are CLOSED on Mondays.</b> My big plan for one Monday was to go to 's-hertogenbosch and then on the way back stop in Nijmegen and take a look around there. I had bought the train ticket and everything when all of a sudden my Aunt and Uncle asked if I was sure if everything that I wanted to see was open. I thought what a stupid question. Why wouldn't things be open on a Monday?? Well I checked it out and it turned out that every single thing that I wanted to see was closed. I was checking other near by towns to see if there was anything I could do there and all the things that interested me weren't open. I was so upset. It did turn out alright though. I ended up paying a visit to Arnhem's Open Air Museum and had a great time there. But be aware of this and don't be like me and buy your train ticket in advance without checking first.</font>
