Katwijk

Characteristic coastal village in the bulb area

What is the first thing that comes to mind when you think of Katwijk? Probably fishing, while once this was the main source of income for the residents of Katwijk. The town still retains the characteristic atmosphere of days gone by, but these days Katwijk has a lot more to offer!

Katwijk aan Zee is a cheerful seaside resort with a population of over 60.000 people and numerous facilities for its residents, as well as the many tourists who visit Katwijk every year. In the attractive, modern village centre, you will find well-known national chain stores as well as small local shops. This makes Katwijk worth visiting all year round! The centre of Katwijk is only five minutes away from Camping De Zuidduinen.

There are plenty of things you can do in Katwijk: from walks in the dunes to sport events, from fireworks to Search and Rescue events. During summer there is a nice tourist market in the centre of Katwijk each Tuesday. On the second Saturday of August you can enjoy the passing of the flower parade of Rijnsburg. Take a look in the Katwijk Museum, with its beautiful collection from painters who have ever been in Katwijk. You can still feel history here. Entrance tickets for this museum are for sale in the reception of De Zuidduinen. 

But it is not only Katwijk aan Zee itself that makes a visit to Camping De Zuidduinen worthwhile. Katwijk is centrally situated, which makes that the large cities of Holland are easy accessible. Also Keukenhof is only 15 kilometres away from De Zuidduinen. You will not get bored during your holiday here!
