The peaceful Begijnhof It is difficult not to be struck by Amsterdam’s well-preserved beauty; the lovely canalscapes depicted in centuriesold paintings are remarkably unchanged. Historian Geert Mak once described Amsterdam as ‘a Cinderella under glass’, spared as it was from wartime destruction and ham-fisted developers. The comely old centre has no fewer than 7000 historical…

HISTORY FROM THE BEGINNING Originally, the region that spawned a giant trading community was an inhospitable patchwork of lakes, swamps and peat, at or below sea level; its contours shifted with the autumn storms and floods. The oldest archaeological finds here date from Roman times, when the IJ river lay along the northern border of the…

The Netherlands was the first country to legalise same-sex marriage (in 2001), and homosexuality was decriminalised here as early as 1811. So it should come as no surprise that Amsterdam’s gay scene is among the world’s largest. Locals are always fretting about whether they’ve lost their cherry as ‘European gay capital’, but as debate takes…

Dutch cuisine used to be little more than a contradiction in terms. This harks back to the days when Holland’s hard-working merchants saw spices, coffee and cheese more as tradable commodities than something to be enjoyed. The leading Dutch restaurant critic, Johannes van Dam, recently went so far as to say the Dutch would eat…

Given this city’s rep as a wild -running commune of rabid party animals, the first-time visitor may be surprised that Amsterdam is still very much a café society. A serious and civilised institution, the cafés of any sophisticated metropolis should bring to mind intellectual types hunched over worn tables in blue-smoky rooms, dissecting the eternal…

BUSINESS HOURS Business hours are similar to those of other European countries, with a few exceptions. Most banks and businesses close on public holidays, but many shops open on Good Friday, Christmas and Boxing Day. On other religious days, such as Whit Monday, it may seem hardly like a holiday at all. Venues normally closed…

If you’re like many residents, you’ll have trouble tearing yourself away from Amsterdam. But you can’t say you’ve really seen the Netherlands until you venture beyond the city gates. There’s a wealth of beauty, history and tradition within easy reach, and the slower pace of life seems a world away from the Dutch capital. Prepare…

If you thought that the Sahara was all about sand and camels then you’d better think again. While you’ll get your fix of unwieldy dromedaries and undulating dunes, this part of the Sahara is also home to an alien landscape of twisted stone forests, stark volcanic mountain ranges, endless black gravel plains and deep dark…

It has rolling hills, fertile farmland, some glorious – and gloriously uncrowded – beaches, big ports, and towns embellished with reminders of the region’s glorious past, yet the northwest is the least visited region of northern Algeria. Oran, the capital of the northwest, is Algeria’s most important port and naval base. Home to pirates and…

East of Algiers, beyond the soaring hills of the Haute Kabylie, lies a region rich in natural beauty and stirring history. The rugged coast of pine-clad hills and headlands hides a succession of natural harbours and, by Mediterranean terms, unspoiled beaches. Towards the Tunisian border the landscape levels out as meandering rivers irrigate a rolling…
