The Netherlands offers lots of interesting places where you can spend a fantastic time with your group, and it’s just a short flight or train ride away. We offer a choice of three different destinations……

Noordwijk

Noordwijk

Noordwijk is a friendly village that has transformed into a popular beach resort that attracts thousands of visitors each year. The town of Noordwijk is ideal for relaxing at the beach or at one of the many restaurants and beach pavilions.

The main attraction of Noordwijk is the beach, but that’s not the only thing Noordwijk has to offer. Discover the world of satellites and rockets at Space Expo, Europe’s first permanent space exhibition. It is also just 26 miles from central Amsterdam

Relax at the beach, wine and dine on and around the boulevard, shop in the historical centre and enjoy Noordwijk’s notorious nightlife.

Scheveningen

Scheveningen is Holland’s most famous seaside resort which has an abundance of attractions and beach pavilions.

Take a stroll along the boulevard, discover the fascinating marine world at SEA LIFE, enjoy a sunset dining or dance the night away in The Hague’s city centre. Pamper yourself with a stay at the Kurhaus, an elegant five-star hotel and historical health resort by the North Sea. Beach life and city life go together in The Hague!

Scheveningen is best known for its wide sandy beach and the refreshing sea air. But Holland’s most famous seaside resort also offers unique sights, fun attractions and beautiful museums. And the city centre of The Hague is just 10 minutes away!

Valkenburg

Valkenburg Castle

Valkenburg is Holland’s most visited tourist area outside Amsterdam.

Its popularity can no doubt be explained by the wide range of attractions and facilities this picturesque town has to offer. Its location, very close to the German and Belgian borders, is an added and unique attraction for a football tour since teams can enjoy a truly ‘International’ Tour, even on the shortest of trips.
