What is the difference between Holland and the Netherlands?


Most Helpful Guy

  • holland is actually a region on teh wesetern portion of the Netherlands. Amsterdam is in Holland... however outside of holland and the netherlands the two are used interchangeably... but as i learned many in Holland or the Nertherlands sometimes find it offensive or at least ignorant to simply presume they are one in the same

  • The Netherlands is the country. Holland is a region in the Netherlands. It's just a part of the Netherlands. I'm Dutch, and know my stuff.
