Netherlands (Holland)

The Netherlands program highlights and sights:
  • Play games vs. local Dutch teams
  • Sightseeing in Amsterdam including the Anne Frank House, van Gogh museum and Amsterdam canals
  • Visit other major Dutch cities like Eindhoven and The Hague

Volleyball is the most popular indoor sport in the country, with over 125,000 associates. The team had their most successful phase beginning in the 1990s under coaches Arie Selinger and Joop Alberda, reaching various finals for international tournaments and winning both the Olympic Games and the World League in 1996.

 

The Netherlands completed their FIVB Volleyball World Grand Prix stint with a victory in the Group 2 Final Four by beating Poland 3-0 and have maintained a perfect win-record in the 2015 edition, securing promotion to Group 1 next year. In Group 1, the Dutch team can hunt for another World Grand Prix victory as they won the title in 2007. 

 

The team made an unprecedented achievement in their team history, as they have never remained without a defeat in any World Grand Prix edition. Last year, they failed to win the final of the Final Four as Belgium defeated them in the tiebreaker.

 

 

Amsterdam has something for everyone: Van Gogh and Rembrandt museums, unique merchant-house architecture, the Anne Frank House, historic canals crossed by 1,000 bridges, and flowers and diamonds. You can walk everywhere with ease, and nowhere in the world will you find friendlier or prouder people. Volendam and Zaanse Schans, north of Amsterdam, provide a look at the Holland of a few centuries ago, including (of course!) windmills and traditional wooden shoes. South of Amsterdam lays Leiden, dating from Roman times, and Delft, where 300 artists paint porcelain the traditional way.
