I have a topographical map of the Netherlands from Esri. I was hoping if somebody could tell me how I could add this map to my QGIS.

The map can be found on:

It even has its own URL:

Is there any way that I can add this map in my QGIS project?

I am using Qgis 2.18.7

From the URL, click on Topo -> Basiskaarten/Topo (MapServer) and click on WMTS

The link is https://services.arcgisonline.nl/arcgis/rest/services/Basiskaarten/Topo/MapServer/WMTS/1.0.0/WMTSCapabilities.xml

In QGIS, choose Add Layer/ Add WMS Layer -> New and enter in URL https://services.arcgisonline.nl/arcgis/rest/services/Basiskaarten/Topo/MapServer/WMTS
