Known for its wonderful people, attractive cities, stunning beaches, parks and a love of cycling, travelling Holland in a campervan or RV rental makes perfect sense – and is easy, thanks to a relatively flat landscape. Located in northern Europe, the museums and striking architecture pay testament to a glorious history, including artists such as Rembrandt and Van Gogh. Of course Amsterdam awaits you in all its glory, with variety and adventure aplenty.
Magic of Amsterdam in a motorhome rentalThe most notorious city in Holland and one of the most famous in Europe, there’s way more to Amsterdam than smoky cafes and liberated drugs laws. Visit Ann Frank House in the centre of town, where there is also a biographical museum. The Van Gogh Museum showcases the works of Vincent and other artists, as does the Rembrandt House Museum. But its outdoor attractions make Amsterdam such a vibrant city, with the gorgeous canals and traditional houses of the Jordaan District. A campervan hire in Amsterdam gives you the opportunity to pick and choose what you do. There’s a Royal Palace, a Science Center and of course the red-light district among the ‘must-dos’.
Where to stay in AmsterdamYou can’t freedom camp in Holland, but there are numerous campsites that welcome RV rentals and campervan hire tourists. Some are located in the forest and have idyllic views, while others are in nearby villages. A lot of the sites are located relatively close to Amsterdam Airport Schiphol, so you can pick up your Motorhome Republic rental vehicle and get going. And no matter where you are heading first, you are sure to receive a warm welcome.
More to Holland than the capitalWhile Amsterdam will undoubtedly be a focus for your trip, there are plenty of other great cities in Holland. Rotterdam has a vibrant nightlife, numerous museums and a vast selection of retail outlets for a day of window shopping. The Hague is the home of government and is quite luxurious, while Scheveningen is a popular seaside resort. Anyone with a campervan or RV rental in Holland should make the trip. World Heritage Site Kinderkijk is 15km from Rotterdam and is the home of authentic windmills, while Utrecht and Maastricht are also worth putting on your Dutch bucket list.
