Summer in Naaldwijk

Summer time means that Naaldwijk is harder to get to and from because of all of the extra traffic trying to find an alternative way to the beaches. But in the summertime Naaldwijk does his best to be interesting for a visit to.

You can visit the yearly sailing corso (sorry no pictures) and the party week in the city center.
