Hotel Drenthe | Experience beautiful Drenthe!
Vincent van Gogh once said of Drenthe:
'Drenthe is so beautiful so much it captures me all over and satisfies me absolutely, that I, I could not be here forever, I would rather have not seen it, it is indescribably beautiful'.
Go on an adventure!
Wildlands Adventure Zoo Emmen is a worldly adventure in Drenthe! Discover the Jungola, Serenga and Nortica. Our hotel in the heart of Drenthe is close to the zoo.
There are various ways to discover the mysterious, green world and watch the special animals! You can go on an adventure high in the sky, through towers, and over rope bridges! Who knows, you might even meet a gibbon on your way! Go on an expedition in the Jungola, because it is full of surprises!
If you imagine yourself in Serenga, go on an adventure through nature and culture! Visit the huge savannah on a Serenga Safari to see giraffes, rhinos, and many more creatures! Here, you can get really close to the animals! You can look deep into the eyes of a five-meter-long giraffe! Do you dare to pet it? You won't forget this anytime soon!
Nortica is another world with rugged rocks and cold coasts! Brrr... See animals here that have perfectly adapted to life under and above water! For example, you can see fur seals and sea lions swimming deftly through the water here! You'll also find penguins here!
Do you dare?
After the adventure, unwind at our hotel in one of our Luxury Theme Rooms with a bubble bath! Or dive into your own private sauna in a room with a private sauna and terrace. Do you really want to stay in the atmosphere of Wildlands? We have a Luxury Theme Suite with the Wildlands theme!
Museum village Orvelte
Orvelte, you may have heard of it. A lively monument village where people still live and work just like in the old days! Here, history comes back to life. Take a trip back in time and see the museum village with your own eyes!
People still live here in beautiful Saxon thatched farmhouses and other special buildings. You can see them not only from the outside, but also from the inside! A number of farms gladly open their doors for you.
The museum village still mostly serves as a central setting for special events and theme days, folklore groups, special markets and for theatre performances. That's just a handful of what there is to experience!
Take your time and be surprised by what Orvelte has to offer.
For the cyclists among us, we offer a wonderful ANWB-signposted cycling route that passes this special museum village.
