10 years of DutchNews.nl: stories from the Netherlands that made a splash
DutchNews.nl is celebrating 10 years of providing Dutch news in English. Since its launch in September 2006, the website has published 35,000 articles which have been read 76 million times by 13 million unique visitors from all over the world.
So what have been the biggest stories and features over the years? ‘We have been surprised by the broad range of news stories which have made the top 10 of most-read items,’ says editor Robin Pascoe.
‘Classic Dutch subjects such as cannabis and euthanasia are included of course, but so are Rotterdam mayor Ahmed Aboutaleb’s outspoken views on Isis and sexual abuse within the Catholic church.’
We could not provide the Dutch News service, and keep it free of charge, without the generous support of our readers. Your donations allow us to report on issues you tell us matter, and provide you with a summary of the most important Dutch news each day.
