Dwingelo - Nature is everywhere

Nowhere in the Netherlands you will find so many acres of nature. There are no less than two national parks within 1000 metres of our hotel, namely the National Park Dwingelderveld and the Drents Frisian Forest. In the Holtingerveld – part of the Dwingelderveld - you will find the largest wet heathland of Europe, with the increasingly rare juniper bushes. The unique flora and fauna and two photogenic sheep herds will surely surprise you. We also recommend to visit the large visitors centre.

Our guests go for a bike ride or a hike. There are several paved and unpaved trails for mountain biking and jogging directly from the hotel in the surrounding nature. We have plenty of bicycle storage, you can charge your electrical bike and next to the hotel you will find a bike rental shop.
