Motorhome Hire Netherlands

The Netherlands is a relatively small country in Western Europe, with approximately 17 million inhabitants and a surface area of over 41,000 square kilometres. A peculiar characteristic of the Netherlands is that the western part of the country lies largely below sea level. Despite this strange fact, the western part is the most densely populated area. The Netherlands used to be known as a distinguished trading country, drained by the unending labour of mills and built from the clay soil. The Netherlands has fascinating nature reserves including the Hoge Veluwe and De Biesbosch, plus countless historic cities where history, art and culture are for the taking. Hire a motorhome in The Netherlands and discover your favourite spots yourself!

Camping in the Netherlands

Unlike several other European countries, wild camping is unfortunately not allowed and camping on official campsites is the only option available when you decide to rent a motorhome in the Netherlands. Fortunately, you'll find hundreds of campsites throughout the country, from the hills of South Limburg to the picturesque Wadden Islands. One of the best places to camp is in the National Park De Hoge Veluwe, where you'll find beautiful woodlands and endless walking and cycling. Friesland is an excellent camping area if you like lakes, while the North Sea coast is popular for its beaches and dunes. If you really want a great outdoor holiday to experience camping life, we recommend the Wadden Island of Texel. Here you will find great beaches, bird-watching areas, cosy villages and even Texel's own beer brewery.

Driving in the Netherlands

In the Netherlands, people drive on the right-hand side of the road.

The roads in the Netherlands are excellent. Highways, provincial roads and roads in built-up areas are always paved and usually asphalted. Only in the centre of old towns and villages are the streets sometimes paved, which makes them less comfortable.

Toll roads hardly exist anymore in the Netherlands, because the maintenance of the roads is paid from the tax money of car owners.

Annual Events in the Netherlands

  • Opening of Keukenhof, April-May: In spring, when the tulips bloom, the Netherlands' most famous garden opens its doors. The ticket price is €18.50 for adults and €9.00 for children.
  • Koningsdag, 27 April: All over the country there are festivities such as games, markets and musical performances. Entrance is free.
  • World Press Photo exhibition, April: Exhibition with the most important press photos of the past year. Ticket price: €14.50.
  • Liberation Day, 5 May: Day when freedom is celebrated with concerts and festivals.
