Tourism, Recreation and Events in the Netherlands

Everything about tourism, tourists, recreation and events in the Netherlands. Tourist Information Netherlands is THE official website for the Netherlands as a tourist destination.

Toerist Information Netherlands offers you a complete overview of tourism, events and recreation in the Netherlands. Toerist Information Netherlands selects for you the best campsites, hotels, bed & breakfast, holiday homes, restaurants and days out for your holiday in the Netherlands. We have posted the recreational opportunities and tourist attractions of every place in the Netherlands for you on our site, conveniently arranged by province and town for you.

Tourist Information Netherlands has had a whole new look since December 2018. This time with even more advantageous holiday homes, campsites & motorhome sites, hotels, bungalow parks, bed and breakfast, amusement parks, museums and zoos in the Netherlands and selected for you by province. We will show you the best places to go so that you can immediately see what there is to do near your holiday destination. After all, it is not for nothing that many holidaymakers choose the Netherlands as their favourite holiday destination. After all, there is plenty to do for young and old.

A good example is our capital city Amsterdam, which is known for its artistic heritage, extensive canal network and narrow gabled houses, a legacy from the Golden Age. The Museum Quarter houses the Van Gogh Museum, the Rijksmuseum with works by Rembrandt and Vermeer, and the Stedelijk Museum with modern art. Well worth a visit is also the Anne Frank House. This is a monument in memory of Anne Frank (made famous by the diary she wrote, The Secret Annexe) and her family. The house is in Amsterdam at Prinsengracht 263-267. The entrance to the museum is, around the corner, at Westermarkt 20. To avoid waiting times, it is advisable to book tickets through the official Anna Frank site. Seeing Amsterdam from the water is actually the best and most appropriate way to see all the sights. In peace and quiet, you will let the beauty of centuries-old canal houses pass you by and at the same time shut out the hustle and bustle of the present-day metropolis. Most canal cruises depart from Stationsplein and Damrak. This is just a small selection of the sights that our capital Amsterdam has to offer. So a visit to Amsterdam is definitely worthwhile for a day out or a successful holiday at home.

Some holidaymakers opt for free or wild camping. Most opt for official accommodation. About 4 out of 10 Dutch people prefer a hotel, guest house or bed & breakfast for their overnight stays in 2016. This is followed by caravan/camper, summer house/bungalow and flat, each with between 10-20% of holidaymakers.

The main forms of accommodation are:

  • hotels, in all forms, traditionally places for overnight stays by holidaymakers;
  • camping sites, an important alternative in some parts of the world, especially as they increasingly rent out luxury tents, caravans, hiker's huts or bungalows;
  • holiday flats, flats rented exclusively to tourists;
  • bungalow parks, sites with holiday bungalows, often with all kinds of holiday facilities and activities, such as a swimming pool;
  • bed and breakfast (Bed & Breakfast), a kind of small hotels, with no hot meal and often personal service; Guest houses are much like Bed and Breakfast; Guest houses often offer more service, such as extra meals;
  • youth hostels or hostels, initially intended mainly for young people, but now also open to families or older individual travellers: a kind of simple hotels where the tourist has less privacy: many facilities including often bedrooms and/or sanitary facilities are shared;
  • camper van sites, places to park a camper van with minimal facilities; unlike 'wild camping', there is slightly more security due to social control and the stay is allowed; for tents, there are similar places in Belgium and the Netherlands with likewise few facilities: bivouac zones or pole camping sites;
  • private homes, whether through home exchange or not: one's own home is made temporarily available to tourists; a commercially organised variant is Airbnb;
  • special group accommodation for e.g. schools, associations, such as camping farms or other large holiday homes.
