Spring, summer, autumn, and winter - luckily, the climate in the Netherlands means that, generally speaking, the country enjoys the highs and lows of each of the four seasons. However, Dutch weather is also notoriously unpredictable, so you never know what to expect. But many will agree that, through it all, the country's beauty shines through - even in the freezing winter months.
