A Brief History

Any search for flights Sydney to Amsterdam that include the word ‘Holland’ can easily confuse travellers. It may put into question exactly what country Sydney to Amsterdam flights arrive in. Is it the Netherlands or Holland? The answer is… both. When Napoleon invaded the Netherlands in 1806, he declared the new kingdom ‘Holland’ and crowned his brother King four years later. The people rebelled and in 1813, the congress in Vienna voted to make the country of the Netherlands a monarchy. Since then, the only time the Dutch refer to ‘Holland’ is when speaking of the two provinces created out of the 1813 ruling. Amsterdam lies in Noord-Holland (North Holland) and all official government seats are housed in Zuid-Holland (South Holland). Sydney to Amsterdam flights arrive at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol (AMS), which is the main airport of the Netherlands. So, while Amsterdam is in the country of the Netherlands, it is also in the province of Noord Holland.
