Weather at the moment
Weather all year round
The weather can change very quickly. In general, the Netherlands has a temperate ocean climate with high winds and short, unpredictable showers. There are rainy July months when the temperature does not exceed 20°C, but with a clear sky we reach 25°C and, as in any city in the south, people walk around in shirt arms. In winter, temperatures fluctuate between -1°C and 5°C on average.
Since 2002, the euro has been the currency used in the Netherlands. In recent years, the Netherlands has experienced inflation, particularly in the catering sector. From now on, the cost of living is roughly comparable to that of Paris, even if hotels are generally more expensive than in France. Note that drinks (alcoholic or non-alcoholic) are rather cheap.
Access to the European territory of the Netherlands requires a valid national identity card or passport (to the exclusion of any other document). Anyone aged 14 and over in the European territory of the Netherlands must be in possession of a valid identity document (passport, national identity card, Dutch residence permit, driving licence), which they must be able to present to the Dutch police forces at their request.
No vaccination is mandatory and no disease is to be feared. However, make sure your vaccinations are up to date. The Netherlands is renowned for being a clean, healthy country with a complete medical infrastructure. Moreover, the proximity of France makes repatriation easy and quick. Be careful, however, here you don't go to the doctor for a small bump or flu and prescriptions for drugs are not automatic.
