Fresh with certified regional products from the Veluwe

Nothing beats the taste of fresh and pure products. Therefore, Van der Valk Apeldoorn lovingly grows the vegetables and herbs in its own vegetable garden. For this, the hotel has even received the Dutch quality label ‘Erkend Veluws Streekproduct’ (certified regional product from the Veluwe). The organization behind this quality label has set itself the goal of preserving the development of regional products from the Veluwe area. Wouldn’t it be wonderful to walk around in our beautiful backyard after your lunch in Apeldoorn? It will give you the opportunity to see all of the products that we use for our dishes.

Having a weekend brunch

Whether you’re on holiday in the Netherlands or visiting Apeldoorn for business, you can have some extra enjoyment on Sundays. Have a nice lie in and don’t set the alarm for a change. It’s all possible at Van der Valk Hotel Apeldoorn. We give you the chance to enjoy one of our luxury hotel rooms a bit longer than usual.

Since the extensive brunch buffet doesn’t start until noon, you’ll have plenty of time to sleep in. Kick off the buffet in a bubbly way with a glass of prosecco or in a healthy fashion with a glass of freshly squeezed fruit juice. You can enjoy the all-you-can-eat brunch buffet with a business contact, your partner or the entire family. Are you bringing along your children? De Cantharel also offers lots of fun to its youngest guests. Children cannot only enjoy a special children’s buffet, but also a play area.
