General

  • Family-friendly site 10 minutes' walk from the village of Meppen
  • 1,400km of cycling trails in the Drenthe region; hire bikes on site
  • Pool, restaurant, playgrounds, tennis court and free wifi

Across the world, it’s widely accepted that green means go. Not so much here in the Drenthe region, where the gorgeous greenery is likely to encourage you stay a while.

And if you do (wisely) select to spend a stretch of time at Camping De Bronzen Emmer, you can fill many days happily pottering about in the surrounding countryside and visiting historic and family fun attractions. Hiking and horse riding are both nearby but the best approach is to do as the locals do and bring or hire bikes to take to the 1,400 kilometres of cycle paths that crisscross Drenthe’s heathland, dunes, marshes and forests. If you’ve not got the time or energy for the whole lot, the site’s friendly staff can offer advice on a suitably bite-sized chunk to whet your appetite with.

Active antics don’t stop at the gates though, as the site itself has plenty to keep you busy, including a tennis court, a volleyball court, a pétanque court and a lovely warm indoor swimming pool with a kids’ pool. In high season, there are also heaps of activities for the nippers to choose from – sports tournaments and the highly handy campfire building among them. Outside of organised fun there’s also plenty of space for them to run around and play games, with a natural pond for splashing about in should they need a bit of a cooldown.

The town of Aalden is a 10-minute cycle ride from the site if you’d like to venture out for restaurants and a supermarket, or you could choose to stay put and eat at the site’s own restaurant (also open during the day for impromptu snacks, coffees, ice creams and the like).

Useful features for parental folks around here include baby bathrooms and a good spread of playgrounds including one right next to the pitches, allowing playtime to continue while the grownups keep an eye on proceedings from afar (perhaps while lighting the barbie or relaxing with a well-earned cool drink).

Local attractions

Start your local wanderings by taking the 10-minute walk up to the nearest village, Meppen, a cute little place that’s famed for its traditional thatched farmhouses and tall oak trees. Or, if you’re here in the school holidays, you can sign up for riding lessons and guided tours into the local forests and nature reserves, directly from the site. Bike hire is also available if you’ve not brought your own.

With kids in tow, there are several great family-friendly days out nearby. 20 minutes’ drive away in Emmem is Wildlands Adventure Zoo, where you can explore four different themed areas to see all kinds of beasts including crocodiles, hippos and polar bears among others. Fairytale fans should head to Kabouterland in Exloo, 25 minutes away, to spend the day searching the magic forest for trolls, gnomes and other fantastic folks that call this place home. For more adrenaline-fuelled excitement, the huge Slagharen theme park is only about a half-hour drive from here, and has enough rides and shows to keep you all giddy for hours on end.

The popularity of this area isn’t some sort of recent fad – it’s been inhabited since the Bronze Age (hence the site’s name). If you’d like to learn a little about local history, you’d be best to head to the Hunebedcentrum archaeological museum, half an hour’s drive from the site. More recent history is on display at the former Westerbork concentration camp, a 20-minute drive from the site. Anne Frank and many other Jews were sent to other camps (including Auschwitz) from here, and it’s now a sobering monument to those people.
