It’s all about timing. To avoid crowds and inflated prices, we recommend the period between high and low seasons when the weather is fine, places are still open and happy to welcome travelers, and you can explore a destination at your own pace. ShermansTravel experts call this magical time and space continuum the Sweet Spot.

When to go to Netherlands

Peak Season: April to August

Crowds come for flower season, which runs from late-March to mid-May. Fair weather and long days lure travelers in June and August. Book hotels at least two months ahead. Temperatures average in the 50s.

Off Season: November to early-March

The Netherlands’ northern location ensures short winter days. Although temperatures rarely dip below zero, you’ll need to bring an umbrella. Travelers who don’t mind the rain and chill will benefit from reduced rates and fewer crowds.

Sweet Spot: late-March; September to October

Arrive in late March to catch blooming flower beds without the masses. In September, tourists start to dwindle; in October the onset of cooler weather translates to hotel discounts. Temperatures average in the low 50s.
