Blog 2: Dutchies Hostel – Random fun facts

Every country has its own culture and every culture has it quirks. The Netherlands is no exception to this ‘unwritten rule’. There are plenty of things that others view as really weird, while for me it’s the most normal thing in the world.
An example is something as simple as having dinner. It is very common to have dinner here at 6pm, not earlier and not later, just 6pm sharp. Dutch people also know not to call you at that time, because there is a 99.9% chance you are eating.
And speaking of dinner, how about having pancakes for dinner? Sure it’s great as breakfast, but it is also great for dinner! We also eat chocolate on our bread in the morning and I’m not talking about Nutella. No, I’m talking about chocolate sprinkles on your bread. With a nice layer of butter to make it even better.
What the Netherlands, and probably mostly Amsterdam, is known for are bicycles. There are actually more bikes in the country than there are people. When you are at Dutchies be sure to ask about our bike rental, it’s a great way to get to know the city.
