Best time to visit: spring, autumn. Winters can be dull, rainy. Summers hotter each year.
Autumn has less tourists, so less lines for the Rijksmuseum, VanGogh or Stedelijk museum.
Visit Haarlem, Utrecht, Delft or Leiden and enjoy history mixed with student life.
Beaches? Zwarte pad in Scheveningen or Bloemendaal (hideaway: Camping de Lakens with direct beach access)
Driving south? Visit Breda or Maastricht or Eindhoven during the Design week.

Thanks hoover. It would be good if it were possible to filter those for touring units as it seems heavily skewed towards fixed abode camping.

I know this is an old thread but for anyone doing a search...

I'd recommend visiting Alkmaar to watch the cheese market in action. Nice little town too.

There is an ACSI campsite on the outskirts call Camping Alkmaar, which has a bus stop just outside the campsite which will take you into the centre of town. Just be careful with the campsite as when we were there they were charging for showers. The manager/owner doesn't speak English so it was hard work trying to explain that under the ACSI scheme showers should be included in the price.

Donít argue with idiots because they will drag you down to their level and then beat you with experience. óGreg King

Edam in the 60s and Flora Holland a couple of years ago:-
So many places to visit apart from flower parades, windmills and remarkable buildings, especially in Rotterdam.

Another vote for the historic City of Maastrict it's out on a limb but only a very short hop from Aachen (Aix) across the border in Germany another interesting and historic city that Charlemagne made the capital of his European empire in the 8thC BC.

If you want to visit Maastricht then I can recommend this site in nearby Valkenburg...

https://www.campingdendriesch.nl/en/

Trains run from Valkenburg to Maastricht.

The campsite has an aire-type place as well as full campsite pitches. Vandenburg is a nice place to visit too and has something very peculiar to the Netherlands...a hill!! With a cable car ride up it too.

We loved Amsterdam

The campsite was a bit hippy but we could ride by bike into the centre

A few years ago

But all in all we really enjoyed Holland

Delftse Hout is very good for Delft itself (Vermeer museum etc), you can also catch a train to Amsterdam from Delft which passes through the spectacular wood panelled train station at Haarlem.

Allurepark Laag Knaje is in a forest by a lake, the touring pitches are quite secluded and it's about an half an hour's walk to the nearest train station where you catch a train to Utrecht or Amsterdam

Camping Oosterdriessen at Maastricht is a pleasant, relaxed site with a nice lake you can swim in. You can catch a bus into the city which is very picturesque.

A couple of pieces of advice about being a tourist in the Netherlands:


1. Get an OV Chipkaart, you can buy them at train stations etc and are used on all public transport (you beep yourself on an off but be warned, they do have inspectors who will check). It lasts for five years and can be topped up any time. The tram is the best way to get around Amsterdam.



2. If you're going to visit sites like Anne Frank's House, the Van Gogh Museum or the Rijksmuseum, it really pays to go online and book your visit ahead, it will save queueing, a lot of queueing!
