List of cities in the Netherlands by province

Below are twelve alphabetical lists of cities in the Netherlands ordered by province.

City rights in the Netherlands define a place's status. Smaller urban areas are known as dorpen. Certain places are sometimes also considered cities especially if they historically had city rights or if they function as an urban center in a rural area; while larger population centers in densely populated areas are often neither considered a village nor a city and are usually referred to by their municipalities.

When discussing cities, the distinction is sometimes made between the "big four"—Amsterdam, Rotterdam, The Hague and Utrecht—middle-sized cities and other ones.
