How safe is Netherlands?

In my experience the Netherlands is very safe. I feel I can go out alone on the street at late hours without any problems. There might be some neighbourhoods in the bigger cities that might be a bit more unsafe, but I'm not too familiar with those.

The Netherlands is safe to live in every day. You have to see the beautiful houses with channels everywhere. The windmills are so beautiful, and let's not forget the tulips in the spring. Everyone here cycles, from 5 years old up to 80 years old.

Savety all depends on which city you go to and who you're with. However, I'd say that overall, the Netherlands is considered safe for solo travellers or female travellers. Many people speak English and are willing to help you out with directions and that type of stuff.

Solo travel experience

I felt really safe in Netherlands. And it was actually the safest country that I visit. I went to Amsterdam. You should definitely see the royal palace. And also Ripley’s Believe or Not museum was really fun

Solo travel experience

The Netherlands is super safe, and most people speak English, so I could get directions if needed. And their public transport is amazing, it's so easy to move from city to city!
