Special temporary campsite for the Tour de France 2015 in Utrecht

If you are looking for a campsite during the start of the Tour de France in Utrecht? Then this is the place to be! Camper cars, tents and caravans are all welcome. This “pop-up” campsite is located at a recreation area called “Down Under”. Very close to the city centre and loads of activities to do. 

The site is ideally located with respect to the course of both the first and the second stage. Via the “cycling bridge” you are able to go to town by bike in less than 10 minutes. The best spots along the route of the first and the second stage are only a stone’s throw away. In addition, the site is very easily accessible from the various highways and access roads around Utrecht during “le Grand Depart”.

All facilities, like toilets and showers, are provided. For both motorhomes and tents, we have spacious places.

The campsite will be open from July 1st till July 6th. During these days there are numerous activities in and around the city. Cultural activities such as festivals, sporting events such as the touring version of the Tour de France and of course the highlight: the Tour de France itself! The presentation of the tour participants on July 2, the first stage on July 4 and the start of the second stage on July 5 in the center of Utrecht.
