Times have been tough lately, with the financial crisis hitting all of us, forcing us to save rather than spend our money. Taking a nice relaxing vacation may not have been a possibility for you and your family in the last couple of years and perhaps it is still a hard decision to make. Still, there are lots of splendid options for low budget holidays. If you are looking to spend a wonderful vacation that will not cost too much money, you may want to consider some lovely campsites in the Netherlands. This cute little country just across the Canal holds some unexpectedly beautiful attractions. Even though it is a small nation, it once was an influential power at sea and in its Golden Century, trading, art and a science flourished. In many locations in the Netherlands one can find well preserved traces of this rich history. Take the canals in Amsterdam, for example, or some of the medieval castles scattered across the eastern rural lands. Wherever you turn within these 41.526 square kilometers of a country, you will be surprised by the interesting things there are to discover. During your trip you can stay in hotels, hostels or campsites in the Netherlands. Campsites in the Netherlands are by far the cheaper option. If you are a tad adventurous and if you are not afraid of sleeping in a sleeping bag and living in a tent for a couple of weeks, you will enjoy your holiday across the Canal. You could even rent a bike (a very popular mode of transport in Holland) and travel across the charming countryside, visiting a number of different campsites in the Netherlands. There is one example of a museum that can only be reached by bicycle. It is called the Kröller-Möller museum, after the couple who started the collection in 1888, and it is located in the national park “De Hoge Veluwe”. Since no cars are allowed in the national park, they arranged a transporting system consisting of white bicycles, which can be used for free, in order to move around in the park. The Kröller-Möller museum displays the largest collection van works by Vincent van Gogh, which would be reason enough to pay a visit. This museum is one of those cultural treasures the Dutch keep hidden away in their forests, fields and hillsides (the latter located mainly in the southern regions). Staying at one of the charming campsites in the Netherlands allows you to explore these amazing features that leave your head spinning with impressions once you are back in your tent, enjoying the cozy warmth of your sleeping bag.
