List of regions of the Netherlands Redirected from List of subregions of the Netherlands

NUTS-1 regions of the Netherlands

The regions of the Netherlands provides links to both regions and subregions of the Netherlands.

Regions

The regions of the Netherlands are divided in the North, South, West and East Netherlands. Opposed to common practise in other countries, the Dutch regularly do not define the areas of their country according to position, but on the overall position of the province—the most western tip of Gelderland is clearly positioned south to the centre, yet because the province is considered East this area is too.

Official regions

Many regions in the Netherlands are officially defined by certain regulations of organizations.

Subregions

The subregions (Dutch: landstreek (plural: landstreken), literally translating to a combination of 'land/country area/region') are non-administrative area in the Netherlands that can be demarcated on grounds of cohesion with regards to culture or landscape. This means that a landstreek is not bound by provincial or municipal boundaries. Below is a list of all Dutch landstreken with the province(s) in which they are located mentioned between brackets.
