Customs

Drinks

The Dutch usually don’t socialize with their colleagues and will keep work and private life separate. They don’t like working late or coming in over the weekend as they like to keep this their personal time. They might go for drinks after work (borrel) but tend to go home after 1.5 hours for dinner. The drinks take place at a “bruin café” where they serve Dutch and Belgian beer, wine and spirits such as Dutch jenever, and of course soft drinks. No meals are served, but snacks like “bitterballen” and cubes of cheese may be present.

When the first rays of sunshine appear after wintertime, you will find a lot of people on terraces outside, although the temperature might still be low.
