Camping in Amsterdam: nature around the corner
After a day full of entertainment in the city, it is nice to relax in a quieter area. Fortunately, the campsites in and around Amsterdam are in the great outdoors. This way you combine the best of both worlds. For example, how about the Amsterdamse Bos? Surrounded by greenery and water you imagine yourself more in a nature reserve than in a busy city. Or camping on the IJmeer? We listed the best options in Amsterdam!
