Things to do in Holland
The beginning of the year can be a bleak period for many, however if you happen to be in Amsterdam this will definitely not be the case! There is a whole host of fun and interesting things going on for locals and visitors to take advantage of.
The Future of Fashion is Now, Museum Boijmans van Beuningen, Rotterdam
Until 18 January 2015
You fashion fiends out there will love this! This exhibition celebrates all that is great about fashion’s newest names. Exciting new talent will be on show, such as the work of Viktor & Rolf and Rejina Pyo. These guys think outside the box when it comes to their designs, with sustainability, futurist technology and the social value of clothing being the central themes.
Amsterdam Light Festival

Amsterdam Light Festival has something for everyone and is a real treat for anyone in the city this January. The historical centre makes for a beautiful backdrop and people come in their droves to watch the light shows, projections and sculptures in awe. Come and check it out!
National Tulip Day, Amsterdam
18 January 2015
Are you a fan of tulips? Amsterdam is the ideal place for you this January. The tulip season gets off to a colourful start on National Tulip Day on Dam Square. You can help yourself to some flowers and get some great snaps while you’re there!
Design from the Country of The Potato Eaters, Noordbrabants Museum, Den Bosch
24 January – 26 April 2015
Brabant is the land of Van Gogh, so it’s no surprise the museum here is showcasing a selection consisting of approximately 85 extraordinary objects and products which have been inspired by three well-known themes from his works produced in Brabant. They include simple life, farmland and nature. It’s a must for any culture vultures out there!
Until 01 February 2015
What better location for an ice rink then outside the Rijksmuseum? This one is for the kids and the grown ups, with lessons available and sweet treat stalls to enjoy afterwards!
