Q & A

  • What would you have changed?

    The weather. It can be quite cold and wet in the Netherlands, especially during winter.

  • How was the food?

    Utrecht has many. For the vegans among us, Broei is very nice and not too expensive. For lunch and coffee 'de Moestuin' is really great. A bit outside of the centre but it is definitely worth it, especially if you have kids.

  • What tips would you give a friend?

    If you visit the Netherlands, don't just go to Amsterdam. There is sooo much more to see.

  • Transportation Tips?

    The public transportation in the Netherlands is very good. You can get almost anywhere. But it's not cheap, especially the trains can be reallly expensive. Try to travel with a Dutch person because they can give you a discount with their transportation card.

Lodging

  • Camping Stortemelk. It is the biggest camping on the island and is in the middel of the dunes. From your tent you only have to walk 5 minutes before you arrive on the beach. There is a nice restaurant for drinks and foods and there is always a good atmosphere.

  • Landal Hoogvaals. a holiday park with swimming pool and restaurants. Houses were cosy with a fire place and kitchen.
