6. Indoor activities in the surrounding area

Many of our holiday parks are just a stone's throw away from a picturesque village or a vibrant city, offering a wide range of great leisure activities. How about a trip to the metropolis of Amsterdam with its canals, gabled houses, cultural and culinary delights? There is plenty to do in the largest city in the Netherlands for both adults and children. Visit the Rijksmuseum and discover the art history of the Netherlands or visit the children's museum NEMO.

The NEMO Science Museum is located near the Central Station and offers exhibitions from all areas of science on 4 floors. Here, young and old explorers will be amazed, because a large part of the exhibition consists of experiments and invites you to try things out: Build the best sled and try it out on the test track, make a light bulb glow or make a giant soap bubble so big you can stand inside it!

These are just a few of the attractions and activities you can discover in the area around our holiday parks. Check out the page of your favourite holiday park and discover the best indoor activities in the area!
