Enjoy all year round.
The beautifully situated Recreatiepark De Wielen is an excellent base from which to discover the inspiring Kop van Noord-Holland. With nice seaside resorts such as Sint Maartenszee and Petten within cycling distance, you will find cosiness and relaxation, without the real hustle and bustle of the beach! Discover the Schoorl Dunes.
More than 60 kilometres of footpath take you to the six highest dunes, the oldest woods and the shifting dunes.
All seasons is to enjoy the special environment in and around our park. Even in winter!

Come to our recreation park near the beach in the Kop van Noord-Holland

Come to the beach, walk through the dunes, cycle over the historical dikes or stroll through the cosy town of Schagen. Of course that is lovely in the summer, but what about the bulb fields in the spring, the rough sea and nice breeze in the autumn? But also with Christmas and New Year's Eve it is pleasant to stay. It is all year round enjoyment.

The sunniest region in our country

The northern part of North Holland scores best! Apart from the top of North Holland, Texel, Terschelling, Vlieland and the mainland west of the Lauwersmeer score well. Zeeland also stands out. It is striking how a few kilometres inland the number of sunshine hours immediately decreases. An interesting fact is that June is sunnier than July almost everywhere in the country.

You can cycle to the coast in 20 minutes and also through one of the oldest polders!
Or discover the Westfriese Omringdijk and other surprising cycling routes.

Come play golf for a long weekend or midweek in the Kop van Noord-Holland area. There are beautiful links and polder courses.

Our park has a large open-air swimming pool, but you can enjoy a nice warm indoor swim all year round in pool de Wiel less than 3 km from the park.


Here is peace and quiet and you can enjoy cycling and walking.

But also the cosiness of Schoorl, Callantsoog, Schagen or Alkmaar is nearby. A lovely day trip to Amsterdam or Texel is also one of the possibilities. And of course sun, sea and beach nearby!

We are open for four seasons and there is always something to do!
