Vacation in a holiday home at Lake Yssel

Lake Yssel, also known as Ijsselmeer, is an artificial freshwater lake in central Netherlands. Holiday-makers can spend an entire day here soaking up the sun while sailing a yacht or simply lazing around at their holiday rentals. Finding the perfect holiday apartment near the lake shore is easy as there are plenty of holiday houses to choose from.

Discover charming locations

Day-trippers can ride bicycles along the quaint paths to explore picturesque locations. The bike trail on top of the Afsluitdijk dam, which formed Lake Ijssel, offers impressive views. It is well-marked, and detailed maps are available at tourist offices. The dam lies between the North Holland and Friesland provinces. Holiday-makers can also stay near the lake by renting holiday homes or holiday apartments in these regions.

Many species of water birds can be spotted here, especially the great cormorant. Visitors can also set up camp on one of the region's campsites. While most are open only during spring, some operate all year round. There are plenty of holiday apartments and houses available through all 12 months.

Spend time leisurely

There are several museums near the lake, including the Van Gogh Museum and the Rijksmuseum. Holiday-makers can rent a holiday home nearby to add a cultural dimension to their vacation.

A vacation in a holiday home offers an array of opportunities for activities. Travellers can rent a yacht from one of the many yacht clubs at Lake Yssel to unwind, enquiries for which can be made at their holiday houses. During winter, ice skating on the frozen Lake Yssel is a popular activity. In summer, the sight of the melting ice is splendid. Guests can also fish at the lake.

Book holiday rentals well in advance to experience the best of Lake Yssel.
