Outdoor activities

Discover the Veluwe

From the hotel, the children walk straight into the woods to run, play and discover. With our children's bikes, you can enjoy the Veluwe together by bicycle. Very popular with our guests is the Kids Land Rover for a tough ride on the public forest trails! Animal lovers will also have a great time; take a ride together in our horse tram or carriage ride and enjoy the beautiful surroundings. 

The facilities at our family hotel in the Veluwe region make the stay a pleasure for all guests. We recently opened The Q Lounge with a private cinema for 5 and a private karaoke bar with luminous dance floor. Drinks and snacks from our shop and free popcorn make it a real party for the kids. Our wellness garden has an indoor and outdoor pool; perfect enjoyment for the whole family!

There is plenty to do in the surroundings of our family hotel. Apeldoorn is home to the Julianatoren amusement park with more than 60 attractions; amazing for the kids. Go out to National Park De Hoge Veluwe and discover nature on white bikes. Or combine your stay at our family hotel with an escape to the climbing forest in Apeldoorn. There is plenty of inspiration around our hotel!
