Netherlands weather overview

Large areas of low-lying Holland have been reclaimed from the sea and the country's climate is as changeable as the North Sea waters which lie off its long coast. Be prepared for rain at any time, especially in inland areas which, in the winter, tend to be wetter than coastal districts.

In the summer, however, the coast can fall prey to sudden squalls, thunderstorms and intense showers while, in the autumn and winter, it can be afflicted by strong gales.

Some winters are severe enough to freeze canals and rivers, while others are mild. There are only two things you can be sure of when visiting Holland: the country is very flat and, therefore, windy, and rain can bucket down at any time of year.

What to pack for Netherlands weather

In the summer, you could find yourself basking in up to 8 hours of sunshine a day, so light clothes are appropriate but these should always be supplemented with warmer cover-ups and rainwear. In winter, medium to warm clothes are essential. Basically, when travelling to Holland, you should be prepared for anything.
