The Netherlands is an increasingly popular country to visit. In 2016, 1.4 million guests visited the country using Airbnb, up from 75,000 in 2012. Airbnb Travellers come to the Netherlands to discover the rich and diverse destinations the country has to offer and discover authentic, local experiences with passionate hosts. We are open to work with cities across the Netherlands so policy makers better understand the positive economic, social and environmental impacts of home sharing.
