Religion

Holland has a huge religious diversity.

You will find churches, mosques, synagogues and Hindu, Buddhist and Sikh places of worship.

Christianity has the longest tradition, with the first Christian missionaries arriving about 1600 years ago. A large part of the population describes itself as non-religious, however, and Dutch churches lost much of their influence during the second half of the 20th century.

You will have plenty of opportunity to practice your own religion should you wish to. Ask the student affairs office at your host institution to help you locate places of worship.
