Tram's and Metro[edit]

Amsterdam is the only city in North-Holland that has tram's or a metro. The bus is the public transport elsewhare. --Rein N. 03:29, 12 October 2008 (EDT)

Central North-Holland?[edit]

Anyone knows a better region name? I thought of Greater Amsterdam, but then it sounds like it's a big urban area. Which it's not, as it's mostly rural with typical Dutch villages.

On the other hand, it's always seen as a sort of Greater Amsterdam region, like in the Amsterdam COROP-region as well as in the Amsterdam administrative cooperation region. Globe-trotter 11:49, 3 August 2009 (EDT)

Dutch/English Region Names[edit]

Are we supposed to translate the regions or not? Like:

  • Gooi en Vechtstreek or Gooi and Vecht Region?
  • Waterland en Zaanstreek or Waterland and Zaan Region?

and in South-Holland, on the border with North-Holland:

  • Bollenstreek or Bulb Region?
  • Groene Hart or Green Heart?

Issues with Links[edit]

I am new to Wikitravel and don't know how to fix this, but in the "Cities" section the link to Bergen goes to an article on Bergen, Norway rather than the Bergen located in North Holland. —The preceding comment was added by Katenl (talkSpecial:Contributions/Katenlcontribs)

Hi Katenl! Thank you for spotting that! I just have changed the link so now it directs to Bergen (North Holland). I changed the links using so called wiki markup. I'm going to send you now a "welcome message" on your talk page with all the helpful info how to edit Wikitravel. This way you could feel more comfortable contributing to our guides. Thanks! Cheers!
