In 2007 we passed through Holland on the A67 without stopping as we were on our way to visit Kassel in Germany where my grandfather is buried in the Military Cemetery there. (see the Germany page for full details).

Over the years we have been to Holland over 10 times but this was the first in the motorhome. prior visits were with a caravan, towing all the way from Scotland, or by car for a Eurocamps tenting holiday. The campsite of choice back in the day was Camping Koningshof at Rijnsburg, between The Hague and Amsterdam.  From this central location we had toured most of Holland but had missed out on the Province of Zeeland, so that was the destination for a few days touring. The province of Zeeland is in fact one big river delta of the Rhine, Meuse and Scheldt. Zeeland is well known for its fantastic beaches, water sport activities and Delta Works. As it was November the weather was cold, wet and blustery and with few campsites open we wildcamped at Terneuzen on the banks of the Sheldt for a night before moving on to the appropriately named Kamperland where we stayed for a few nights sheltering from a gale.

Our only stop for a few nights in Holland this year was at Campsite De Oosterdriessen, only a few miles from Maastricht, on the last week of our 9 week Grand European Tour. This campsite has a great location on the banks of the Meuse with an easy cycle into Maastricht city centre. Maastricht is a lovely riverside city and has a bustling shopping centre, and is highly recommended for a visit.
