You’ll be asked why you’re there – business or leisure.
I lived in Holland for three years in the 1980s. I’m not sure how the times have changed, but back then, they just waved us through with a U.S. passport, no questions asked. You will love Holland. The people are very friendly.
Probably nothing. The last time I was there (early 1990s) there was just a guy sitting behind a raised desk as you walked through. Now, if he had a bad feeling about you, you would probably get taken aside. And I don’t know, but it would probably be the same questions as going between Canada and the US: business/pleasure, length of stay, do you have relatives here/there, and maybe questions to establish your permanency in your country of origin. Just be calm and truthful and you will be fine. :c)
I live in the Netherlands now and have traveled back and forth from the US a number of times in the past few years. As a US passport holder, I am usually asked my purpose for visiting. “Vacation” is an acceptable answer; I’ve never had a follow-up question. Friends coming from other countries have sometimes been asked how long they plan to stay or where they plan to visit. Be honest and keep your answers short. The Netherlands is a friendly place that generally welcomes visitors – enjoy your stay!
I live in NL all my life and I assume that not many questions will be asked besides the business or leisure questions like deecee mentioned. They may however perform a good search/scan. But it would be nothing compared to what I see on TV in UK/USA. Even Spain for example where I’ve been often, is more thorough.
