Where tradition and innovation meet
“Artistic masterpieces, centuries-old windmills, tulip fields and romantic candlelit cafés coexist with visionary architecture, cutting-edge design and phenomenal nightlife.”
- The Lonely Planet
Tulips, windmills and wooden shoes aren’t the only things that the Netherlands is famous for. ASML is helping to ‘put the Netherlands on the map’ as a high-tech hub – we’re currently Europe’s third most valuable company, with a 2018 market value of €75 billion.
The Netherlands is a popular destination for internationals. In 2018, it ranked fifth out of 46 countries in HSBC’s Expat Explorer Survey as a top country for expats, and in 2013, a Unicef report rated children in the Netherlands the happiest in the world.
Nearly 90% of Dutch people speak English, and over 75% speak German, making it easy for internationals to adjust to life in the Netherlands.
Moving to the Netherlands
At ASML, we understand what it’s like moving to a new country. We offer help with relocation, which includes temporary housing, moving services for furniture and other belongings, and a relocation budget for the various costs associated with the move.
The Holland Expat Center South can help you and your family to settle into your new living and working environment.
