Outings for the whole family
Schoorl is a coastal town belonging to the municipality of Bergen, but until 2001 it was an independent municipality. The oldest writings in which ‘Scoronlo’ was already mentioned at this location date from the 10th century. The municipality of Schoorl consisted of the hamlets: Schoorl, Camperduin, Bregtdorp, Aagtdorp, Hargen, Buitenduin, Schoorldam and Catrijp. The red/yellow striped flag with the shield and the 8 merlets reflect this well.
In the 19th century, Schoorl already became a village where tourists liked to come, often in houses at the back of a yard, but at the beginning of the 20th century more and more campsites were added. In the 1980s there were about 30-35 campsites between Bergen and Camperduin, nowadays that is only a handful.
You can discover Duindorp Schoorl by bike or on foot.
The Schoorl dunes and forests are teeming with safe cycling and walking paths. You can take the whole family on the many junction routes and the cycling routes that have been set out here. The cycle paths go through woods, dunes, along the sea and through the polder. Along the way you will find heatherfields, sand play pits with picnic benches where children can play in nature.
The various hiking trails are well signposted and differ between 5 and 25 km in length.
