Questions about car touring in the Netherlands

Jump to last reply

After lots of research on train travel, we have decided to rent a car for part of our trip so we can see some countryside and not have to adhere to train schedules. There are two long driving days so I’d like some input on what I am working on. We have driven long distances on previous trips to Ireland and England so this hopefully should not be an issue.

We will pick the car up in Brussels, drive to Ghent then to Bruges for three nights. Any recommendations on car parks? We could stay at our B&B for 15 Euro a night, but that is a bit much.

On day 5 of the trip, we would drive from Bruges to Kinderdijk to see the windmills then to Delft then to Haarlem for two nights. On day 6, I would like to go to Hoorn then Enkhuizen for the Zuiderzee Museum then to Giethoorn via Houtribdijk before heading back to Haarlem. I would really like to make a stop at Zanvoort at some point to see the beach.

Will this be too rushed for what we want to see? Are there other places on the way that you would recommend over what I have proposed? Thank you in advance!
