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



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.

Full of tons of useful info, perfect for both those new to the Netherlands and long-term expats Iamexpat.nl

Dutch News

Dutchnews.nl is the most popular site in the Netherlands featuring Dutch news in English.


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.

Invading Holland

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.
