Belgians Negative Regarding Dutch

Belgians consider the Dutch to be stingy, noisy, pushy, and arrogant. Furthermore, they do not appreciate the traffic jams or the Dutch cuisine. Germans see drug consumption and prejudices as negative characteristics of the Dutch. American, British and French visitors consider the Dutch language as a negative element. Tourists from these five countries are the main visitors to the Netherlands. They identify the country mainly with tulips, cheese, windmills and the Amsterdam canals. These are the findings of the Dutch Bureau of Tourism and Congresses on the image of the Netherlands.
