Road trip along bed & breakfasts in the Netherlands: a versatile holiday experience!

bed and breakfast Amsterdam

Amsterdam is a good starting point for a B&B vacation in the Netherlands.

The last couple of years, the number of bed and breakfasts in the Netherlands has grown substantially. Due to this reason among others, this little country by the North Sea offers numerous options for a fantastic vacation. Go on a road trip through Holland, along various B&B’s, and really discover the culture and diversity of the Netherlands!

House boat

At B&B Amstelwake-up you ‘sleep on the water’.

Bed and breakfast in Amsterdam
From Schiphol Airport you can reach Amsterdam in no time, by public transport or with a rental car. The capital offers choice of about six hundred B&B’s. Choose a typical houseboat for example, such as Amstelwake-up. Or would you rather stay in a more authentic bed and breakfast along a canal, like B&B Herengracht 21? After placing your suitcases in your room you can immediately explore the city. Take a cruise through the canals, visit museums, discover the nightlife, and shop till you drop. In Amsterdam alone you are assured of a spectacular vacation.

Dutch shore

The Netherlands have a beautiful coastline and various islands with pleasant, cosy B&B’s.

Dutch islands
After your stay in the Dutch capital it’s time to relax. From Amsterdam you take off for Den Helder, to catch the ferry to Texel. Once you’ve arrived on this island you can enjoy cycling, the fresh air, and – if the weather allows it – go swimming in the sea. After a long day out it’s lovely to relax in a bed & breakfast. Feel like new surroundings? Then hop on the ferry and go from one Wadden island to the other. Eventually you can take the ferry from Terschelling to Harlingen, back to the shore.

Cheese, clogs and B&B’s
The North of the Netherlands has various places to visit. From Harlingen, drive to Leeuwarden or Groningen. Stop where you like, be it in a city or a small village. There‘s always an apartment or B&B with a cordial B&B owner to find. They love to show you around and provide you with more information about the area. Partly because of this personal contact you will notice that the Netherlands have much more to offer than just cheese and clogs.

Dutch nature

Get well-rested at the Hoge Veluwe in B&B Landgoed Sollewerf.

City versus nature
From the North of the Netherlands you can continue your journey to the midst of Holland. Drive to Utrecht, via Zwolle. There’s always something to do in these cities, while you can also enjoy the peace and quiet nearby. Don’t forget to make a stop and take a beautiful walk through the Hoge Veluwe nature reserve.


Enjoy your B&B breakfast, in the hospitable city of Maastricht for example.

Booking a Dutch bed & breakfast
The South of the Netherlands of course is also home to many hospitable B&B’s. Spend the night in ‘s Hertogenbosch, design town Eindhoven or Maastricht. You will see that a small country like the Netherlands is large in holiday experience. Because of its compact size it’s perfect for a road trip. Before or during your trip you can find a B&B to stay in at Bedandbreakfast.eu. Find your perfect B&B or apartment in our extensive selection and book directly, without reservation costs.
