The most beautiful part of Holland (you’ve possibly never heard of)

The Veluwe region is probably the most unexpected of Dutch landscapes. For a country that’s mostly famous for pretty chocolate box cities, sand dunes and canals, the Veluwe is a much more wild landscape of lush forests, dramatic heaths and even quite a few hills.

It’s home to red deer and Highland cattle, pretty Hanseatic towns, Michelin starred restaurants and a variety of outdoor activities. It’s also regarded by the Dutch as the area of finest scenic beauty in the country.

All of this is just a 60-minute drive from Schiphol Airport, meaning you could just as easily organise an entire event here as plan an excursion from Amsterdam or The Hague.

At the heart of it all is the Apollo Hotel Veluwe de Beyaerd which sports a variety of flexible meeting spaces as well as its own onsite activity centre and private grounds, making it ideal for team building events and corporate away days.

The hotel has 91 bedrooms, and it can be easily privatised for exclusive events.
