Visit: THIS IS HOLLAND, Overhoeksplein 51, 1031 KS Amsterdam The Netherlands
Feel the wind through your hair as you fly over Dutch world heritage sites and see the canals, polders, bulb fields, Delta Protection Works and other beautiful places in the Netherlands from a new perspective. Learn how this extraordinary country below sea level was created and continues to exist.
First, you get an overview of how the Netherlands was created: how it was made by people who weren’t deterred by all the water. Using mounds, dikes, windmills and polders, they succeeded in reclaiming land from the sea, creating this extraordinary country below sea level. The high point of This is Holland is The Flight Experience: you feel like you’re really flying. To achieve this, This is Holland uses the latest technology. You’ll be one of 40 people suspended under a huge domed screen, with your hands and feet dangling freely. Your seat will tilt during the eight-minute long film that guides you through a breath taking journey along many beautiful places in our country. Atmospheric effects like wind, mist and smells, makes it feel as though you’re really flying through the air, crossing dikes and braving storms.
This is Holland was given permission by municipalities, nature organizations and UNESCO to film Dutch world heritage sites from the air. Now, This is Holland is making these unique images available to the general public. After the flight you can relax in our Holland lounge, where you can find out more about the sights you’ve flown over. The Netherlands is particularly interesting to experience this way, because from the air you get a good picture of its flat patchwork quilt landscape and of the hard work invested in this unique landscape.
