Regarding The Country
Summers are pleasant, but winters are harsh, with the possibility of heavy snow. Rainfall can occur at any time of each year. The national language is Dutch. Those certain languages spoken include French, English, and German, with English being the most commonly spoken. In the event of an emergency, dial 112.
The handshake is the most popular type of greeting. While tipping also isn’t needed, it is preferable to tip in cafes and taxis. If welcomed to a meal, always bring a small gift to a host’s home. People dress casually on a regular basis, but structured attire is required at social occasions and fine dining establishments.
Makkum, Delft, and Workum pottery are must-haves. Leerdam crystals, Amsterdam diamonds, and Schoonhoven silverware are all strongly recommended.
