Swimming pool & Wellness garden

Just imagine: a sunny winter afternoon or a sultry summer evening when you enjoy the starry sky or the setting sun in a beautiful garden... The wellness garden of Van der Valk Hotel Apeldoorn - De Cantharel is a soothing, green oasis. From the hotel you walk on a cobblestone path directly to this private garden and you suddenly find yourself in a mini-spa with a swimming pool, effervescent benches, relaxation areas, sauna houses and open-air showers. You can swim straight to the indoor pool via the outdoor pool. Also in the indoor part you will find showers and comfortable sunbeds.

Don't like swimming or saunas? No problem! Just relaxing and reading a book is just as beneficial. In the wellness you will experience the Veluwe and the hotel in a new way.
