Recommended Sites For Expats in the Netherlands
I’ve put together this list of recommended sites for expats in the Netherlands as I’m often asked to recommend good sites for expats. So below in no particular order is a selection of the sites I myself visit on a regular basis. This is not a complete list, and I’ll add to it as time goes by, but here are the ones that leap out at me like a pair of Uggs on a winters day.
A very useful site with listings for all kinds of businesses in Amsterdam
Style Me Green
This site is all about sustainable fashion and all the latest fashion trends in that area. Written by the super talented Victoria Onken, she also regularly models repurposed clothes and shows how to make a new look from old outfits. https://styleme.green/
The Yoga Therapy Institute
If you’ve thought about becoming a Yoga instructor then this is the place to go to get certified.
The Hut Serviced Apartments in Amsterdam
The Hut is a group of high quality serviced apartment buildings in some great locations in the center of Amsterdam. A new urban living concept whereby with the use of the Hut’s smartphone app, residents are able to manage some of the following:
- Lights in the apartment
- Ordering dry cleaning
Only a five-minute walk away from Central Station the apartments are incredibly reasonably priced by Amsterdam standards. A studio apartment there starts at 1450 Euros. With the largest apartments starting from 2250. For more information about the Hut click here
Full of tons of useful info, perfect for both those new to the Netherlands and long-term expats Iamexpat.nl
Like white sneakers worn by Dutch ladies in summer, this site is pretty hard to avoid, and why would you? The official site of the city of Amsterdam has not only vast amounts of municipal info, but also guides to museums, galleries, and the bustling bar and cafe scene in Amsterdam.
The first website I read when moving to the Netherlands. It’s still going strong and is full of useful info for expats.
The very first blog I ever read when I moved here, and still as hilarious as seeing a group of identically dressed Dutch ladies at a bar. Invading Holland follows the adventures of an accident prone expat and his attempts at integrating into Dutch society. A fun read.
The Dutch Review
Ok, I’m a little biased as I have contributed articles to this site in the past. Featuring articles mainly written by expats but also Dutch locals, the Dutch Review is always an interesting read.
