School holidays in the Netherlands

Compilled for one of my client, CampingNavigator, below is the official listing for the Netherlands divided into regions. Please note that all schools have an extra week’s holiday which they plan themselves. In a number of Western union locations schools, the May spring holiday lasts 2 weeks in connection with the Ascension Day weekend. Other schools plan this extra week around Whitsun.

A perfect opportunity to let your guests take advantage of attractive rates during the low season.
