Although our spare time is scarce, we are making more and more deliberate choices of how to spend it. This applies to the Dutch, but increasingly also to foreign tourists. On top of that, The Netherlands is an enormously popular holiday destination among the Dutch themselves and to more and more people from abroad. Also in this segment, it is always about the right places: nature around the corner, good accessibility for a day, a city trip or amusement park nearby and lively enough to discover the immediate vicinity.
Therefore, the growth of holiday recreation in The Netherlands is a sector in which GREEN Real Estate is active. With places where people can optimally combine luxury, comfort and moments of indulgence and where we can achieve an excellent return on investment. A good example is the hotel de Wageningsche Berg in Wageningen.
In one of the most beautiful places in Wageningen - east of the Grebbeberg and west of the Wageningsche Berg - GREEN has brought new life to the unique hotel De Wageningsche Berg, which has been very popular for one-and-a-half-century. With respect for the historic architecture and, above all, the vulnerability of nature, GREEN has completely redeveloped the hotel in 2014 and expanded it with 65 rooms. This high-quality 4-star, CO2 and energy-neutral hotel with an associated conference centre is directly connected to the Belmonte Arboretum botanical garden and the surrounding forest area. Vibrant cities such as Arnhem and Nijmegen are fantastically accessible, as are various nature reserves including the Betuwe, National Park Veluwezoom and the Hoge Veluwe. Hotel De Wageningsche Berg currently has 108 rooms, a restaurant with brasserie, a wellness and fitness centre, five large halls with a capacity of up to 900 guests and a terrace around the hotel.
