The Netherlands is known worldwide as the land of windmills, tulip fields and bicycles. But the country has much more to offer than many people think. The Netherlands are becoming more popular year after year, particularly with camping enthusiasts. Hardly surprising, since the country has a considerable number of more than 2,000 wonderful camp sites. There really is something for everyone.

From a small natural camp sites on the canals to gigantic holiday resorts on the beach, it has everything a camper’s heart desires. With such a large selection, it can be difficult to make a choice! We at PiNCAMP have therefore come up with a route which really has something for everyone.

The starting point of the route is Rotterdam, the city with the world’s second biggest harbour. The modern metropolis particularly impresses with its architecturally unique buildings and imposing skyline, which is unsurpassed in Europe. From here it is worth taking a detour to the administrative capital, The Hague, which can be reached within an hour by bus or train. There is also plenty of art, culture and history to discover there alongside the exclusive shopping malls. The Scheveningen lido, the biggest of its kind in the Netherlands, is also worth a visit.

The journey along the coast continues. We leave the cities behind us, and enjoy the peace and quiet on the seemingly endless North Sea dunes and beaches. A trip through the Netherlands wouldn’t be complete without a visit to the capital, Amsterdam, with its romantic canals, picturesque streets and alleyways and the countless museums and shops. Trips to the nearby towns of Haarlem and Alkmaar, which are known for their flower parades and the centuries old cheese market, are also popular.

Finally, we travel to the North Sea island of Texel, one of the most beloved spa locations in the Netherlands. It is the perfect place to end your holiday and enjoy idyllic nature on a picturesque walk through the dune landscape. Seals and whales can sometimes be spotted. Alternatively, you could visit the nearby fishing village of Oosterend or the Schapenboerderij sheep farm.
