Giethoorn Netherlands

Experience the Netherlands and beyond

On a short break you book your own accommodation so you can decide your base to explore from!

Do you like to soak up some culture? The Netherlands has some fantastic cities to explore including Amsterdam, Alkmaar (City of cheese) Rotterdam and Utrecht. And if you like to drive a bit further, we recommend Antwerp and Brussels in Belgium. Or discover the Ruhr Area in Germany – from an industrial region to cultural melting pot. Visit the UNESCO Zeche Zollverein in Essen or get to know the joyful Cologne in Germany.

Prefer to spend some time in nature? Spring is the perfect season the explore the outdoors. Enjoy the famous tulip fields in the Netherlands and visit the Keukenhof or head into the heart of Veluwe, one of the finest areas of scenic beauty in the Netherlands. For the perfect stopover, we recommend the Schwalm-Nette Nature Park in Germany with its vast wooded areas, moors, lakes, heaths and meadows.
