What Campers Should Know About Camping in the Netherlands

Steep Penalties for Speeders

The speed limit on motorways in the Netherlands is 130 km/h, and vehicles towing caravans must not drive faster than 80 km/h. If you’re caught speeding, you could face high fines, so leave your lead foot behind.

Breakaway Cables for Caravans

Unbraked trailers weighing up to 750 kg and braked trailers over 750 kg must be equipped with a breakaway cable. This must be attached to a fixed part of the towing vehicle's trailer coupling or to a carabiner. Hanging the cable around the towball is not enough.

Bypass the Influx of Tourists

If you want to make sure to get a pitch at your favourite campsite, you should probably avoid travelling between the end of July through the beginning of September, as the Dutch also tend to stay on local campsites during the summer holidays. Reserving a pitch is a good idea all year round.

Here’s Where You Can and Cannot Park

Another tip, and not just for camping fans: Kerbs with yellow markings indicate no parking zones. You can park on blue-marked spots, as long as you set a parking disc.
