From the heart of Amsterdam, THIS IS HOLLAND presents a unique flying experience that doesn’t just show you the Netherlands, it lets you live it. THIS IS HOLLAND gives you a breath taking picture of our small, unique country. The highpoint of THIS IS HOLLAND is The Flight Experience: you’ll feel like you’re really flying. Take your seat… Fasten your seatbelt – And fly! THIS IS HOLLAND uses the latest technology to give you the sensation of flying. You’ll be one of 40 people suspended under a huge domed screen, with your hands and feet dangling freely.
A country below sea level
Flying like a bird, you get an overview of how the Netherlands was created. You learn about the 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. During the 8-minute long film that takes you on a breath taking journey along many beautiful places across the country, your seat will tilt to give you the sensation of flying. With atmospheric effects like wind, mist and smells, you’ll feel like you’re flying through the air, crossing dikes and braving storms. The Netherlands is particularly interesting to experience from the air because you get a good picture of its unique flat patchwork quilt landscape and of the hard work invested in it. Will you fly with us?
