[Ad] Welcome to Gelderland – the different Holland!

To collect great vacation memories it doesn’t always have to be the long-distance travels. Sometime a few hours of a car ride to our wonderful neighbours to Gelderland are enough. You don’t believe me? But you should.

When you think about Holland, what is the first thing coming to your mind? Amsterdam? North Sea coast? Den Haag? Correct. But meanhwile all of them are pretty famous and partly very overcrowded. A sheer inconspicuous region in Holland has a lot to offer as well and is in no way inferior to the already know parts of Holland. It was the first time for me too that I’ve been in Gelderland and spent time there. To be exact I was there with Sylvi’s Lifestyle around Arnhem and have some cool tips for you. 🙂

Night stop

Indeed Gelderland isn’t far away, still one or two night stops are really worth it. I can give you two tips where you could spend your night.

For those, who are more the classic type but still like it special, I can recommend the Hotel Modez (Elly Lamakerplantsoen 4 (Putstraat 1a), 6822 BZ Arnhem) in Arnhem. It’s very centrally located and is very modern and stylishly furnished. The characteristic: Every room has its own style and is quasi one of a kind. The hotel is directly affiliated with the Café Caspar. Tasty food, friendly staff and a wonderful atmosphere are waiting for you. 🙂

Who likes it more adventurous and more rustic should stop at the Campingplatz De Wije Werelt (Arnhemseweg 100-102, 6731BV Otterlo). Now you surely ask yourself, why I recommend a campground. But at De Wije Werelt you can’t just camp the classical way, but also can rent special bungalows – or like in our case a Glamping tent! Perfect for everyone who likes camping, but doesn’t want to refrain from luxury. An own bathroom in your tent, real beds, a small kitchen and even a fireplace! That’s my way of camping. 😉

To Do

Workshop at fashion atelier Giling

Klarendalseweg 370, 6822 GS ArnhemNikki Giling is a wonderful and very talented bag designer in Arnhem. She has a small, very beautiful atelier where she designs and crafts her wonderful leather bags. I’d have loved to take all of her bags with me. 🙂

Okay, this wasn’t possible, but as a compensation we had the chance to make our own small handbags, or more a clutch, together with Nikki. We could choose the leather and small individual extras ourselves, so that our bags a real unicums. 🙂 If you’re interested in such a workshop have a look on her website and contact her.

Stadsvilla & Park Sonsbeek

Tellegenlaan 3, 6814 BT Arnhem: If you want a nice place for your lunch or dinner visit the Stadsvilla Sonsbeek. So tasty food! But you have to be quick, because the mansion is very popular and the seats are, at least in the inside, very limited. 😉

Afterwards you can go on a walk through the park. Supposedly the most beautiful park in the Netherlands – that’s what the people of Arnhem say. 😉 But I can only agree. I rarely visited such a beautiful and big park. We also saw a beautiful wedding in the park. 🙂 The park doesn’t only offer nature and quiet, but also different cultural offers like different sculptures and during summer you can enjoy amazing OpenAir concerts here.

Kasteel Rosendael

Rosendael 1, 6891 DA Rozendaal: Who wants some more culture should drive 15 minutes outside of Arnhem to Rozendaal. Even the small village itself is just beautiful and has such a special atmosphere. You can perfectly take a break from everyday like on a walk here.

And don’t miss the Kasteel Rosendael, best with a little guide through the castle and the park.

Pfannekuchenhaus De Heikamp

Hengelose Road 2, 7261 LV Ruurlo: Yet again the pancake house got the title for making the best pancakes in Holland – and I can only agree. The pancakes are unbelievable tasty, and the flour made of own grain is one reason for it, I’m sure. You can really taste the quality and especially the love the employees put in their meals.

But you can’t only eat here, but also for example visit the climbing park Klimbos which is just around the corner or send your kids onto a discovery tour on the munchkin path.

I really can entrust you to visit Holland. Such neighbours are always great to visit.
