However, there is a lack of informative material and product publicity to meet these demands. Besides the Dutch tourist summer holiday concept, it is a tourist profile that shows considerable interest in active cultural and historical routes. Featured content, such as camping, cycling, and maps with activities, especially UNESCO cultural Heritage List details, are requested. “
