The synonym of Dwingeloo is nature.

Nowhere in the Netherlands you will find so many acres of nature. You will find no less than two national parks within 1000 metres of our location, namely the National Park Dwingelderveld and the Drents Frisian Forest. In the Dwingelderveld you will find the Holtingerveld, the largest wet heathland in Europe, with the increasingly rare juniper bushes. The area offers unique flora and fauna, two photogenic sheep herds and a large visitors centre.

Our guests practice cycling, hiking, mountain biking and jogging directly from the hotel on numerous paved and unpaved trails in the surrounding nature. The hotel offers bicycle storage, charging and next to the hotel you will find a bike rental shop.
