Netherlands Accessible Travel Guides & Websites

Here are some helpful resources for planning an accessible trip to the Netherlands.

Books

Wheelchair accessible romantic B&B’s in Holland by Eelke Kelderman. It’s in dutch but is a great resource for finding lovely accessible accommodation in the Netherlands. I reckon with all the photos and the help of google translate or a dutch dictionary you can understand what each accommodation has to offer.  B&B’s in Holland by Eelke Kelderman  The website is www.eelkedroomt.nl also in dutch but if your computer has a translation function you’ll be able to access it.

Rick Steve’s book Easy Access Europe (this guide has access info for parts of the Netherlands, Germany, Belgium, France and the UK). It was helpful for getting a general idea of the accessibility situation in the Netherlands.  The book covers Amsterdam and Haarlem only, the section on Amsterdam would have come in useful for choosing which areas and attractions I might have visited.  I didn’t actually make it to the beautiful city.

Websites
