The Dutch government has given a green light to the Netherlands welcoming tourists from Belgium and Germany

Martin Cnossen of Merk Fryslân thinks that this slight loosening of regulations will mean that a sustainable number of Dutch, German, and Belgian residents will find their way to Friesland for a break. As reported by the Omrop Fryslân.
“We find that German people are loyal visitors”, he said, “who know that it isn’t too busy here in Friesland. I expect that lots will dare to return to visit us.” Cnossen also expects more Dutch people in Friesland this summer, with lots of people now having to cancel foreign travel plans.
In order to support the summer season, Cnossen has just one wish: that toilet blocks at both camp grounds and marinas can open as soon as possible. Under the current regulations, these sanitary blocks must remain shut until July 1.
According to Cnossens, Friesland is an ideal holiday destination during social distancing, because it doesn’t suffer from mass tourism. With the Dutch government’s tourism green light, Merk Fryslân is stepping up its online marketing to potential tourists, says Cnossens.
