Accommodation, breakfast and dinner
Peace and Quiet
Our beautiful and completely new lodges are located a stone's throw from the Hoge Veluwe National Park, 10 min drive from the city center of Arnhem and in close proximity to Burgers Zoo and the Open Air Museum. Whether you are looking for nature, art / culture or shopping and nightlife, Buitenplaats-Petersburg has something for everyone in its vicinity.
De Hoge Veluwe National Park is a world-famous nature park with more than 5,400 hectares of forest, heathland, grassy plains and sand drifts. In addition to the beautiful nature, the Park also owes its appeal to the nationally and internationally renowned Kröller-Müller, which is located in the middle of the Park. The Kröller-Müller manages the second largest collection of paintings by Vincent van Gogh and surprises every visitor with its unique sculpture garden.
The Open Air Museum
One hundred historical places to discover in the 44 hectare museum park. The activities in the museum and the craftsmen bring the historic buildings to life. The Canon of the Netherlands takes you through 50 windows along the most important events, people and objects that have contributed to the Netherlands where we live today.
Dive into 8 million liters of water, go on an adventure in the covered jungle and admire the vultures in our desert! Experience 45 hectares of animal park in Burgers' Zoo! Burgers' Zoo distinguishes itself from other animal parks through its eco-displays, which simulate large-scale natural habitats in which the visitor is part along with nature and animals.
Museum Air Base Deelen
The museum houses a rich collection from the history of Deelen Air Base. In the various rooms, attention is paid to the air war in the years 1940-1945. All items on display, such as photos, documentation and uniforms, are authentic. In addition, attention is also paid to the history around Schaarsbergen.
The Deelerwoud consists of forests and heaths in a rolling landscape. You can encounter red deer, fallow deer, Scottish Highlanders and wild boars here. It is much quieter here than at its two neighbours, De Hoge Veluwe National Park and Veluwezoom National Park.
National Park Veluwezoom
Veluwezoom National Park has more than 5,000 hectares and is part of the Veluwe, a large, contiguous nature reserve. Here you will find almost untouched nature with forests, heaths, sand drifts and estates. The relief is characteristic of Veluwezoom: nowhere else on the Veluwe you will find so many hills and such a beautiful view. On the Posbank you can look as far as Germany when the weather is nice.
The Airborne Museum is a museum in Oosterbeek about the Battle of Arnhem in September 1944 and was completely renovated at the beginning of 2020. Located in the former headquarters of the British troops during the battle, the museum has an extensive collection of weapons, clothing, equipment, interviews, photos and videos. In addition to the collection on display, the museum also contains the award-winning Airborne Experience. In this underground space, visitors themselves follow in the footsteps of a soldier.
The museum for (inter)national modern and contemporary art and design of the city of Arnhem. The collection includes 20th century realist art, contemporary jewelry and design, with special attention to non-Western art and work by women artists. The total collection includes more than 25,000 objects. Well-known names such as Klaas Gubbels, Pyke Koch, Jan Mankes and Fiona Tan are well represented. And young artists like Esiri Erheriene-Essi and Zanele Muholi.
Part of this estate is the Green Bedstead, a tunnel-shaped beech hedge over 300 meters long. The hedge was created in 1865. The ladies of the estate could take a stroll in the shade of the canopy so that the sun would not discolor their skin. In those days, fair skin was a sign of prosperity.
Doorwerth Castle is a sturdy, medieval castle. It shows how people used to live on an estate. Doorwerth Castle's rich history spans more than seven centuries. It knew rich, but also less fortunate times. Now it shows off again in its full 17th-century glory, complete with gatehouse, carriage house and stables. The kitchen garden is managed in such a way that it seems the landlord's kitchen still needs to be supplied with vegetables and flowers. That kitchen itself is also worth visiting. The knights' hall and other rooms in the east and north wings have been restored to medieval form as much as possible.
Between the high-lying Veluwe and the low-lying IJssel Valley lie Rosendael Castle and the famous park Rosendael with the Bedriegertjes, shell gallery, tea dome, ponds and fountains. Castle & park Rosendael, near Arnhem is open for viewing. Visit the castle on your own, with a guided tour or during one of the many activities.
Middachten Estate is one of the largest private estates in the Netherlands and has been family-owned for more than 800 years. The current owner, Count zu Ortenburg, is the 25th generation. Middachten is a complete estate with forests, farmland, farms and a fully furnished castle amidst beautiful gardens. Moreover, it is still in full operation. You are welcome to admire the gardens, tour the castle or wander through the woods.
What our guests say
It was really fantastic!!! What a beautiful Lodges so beautiful in the woods. Right on the Veluwe and a stone's throw from Arnhem. Very friendly reception and everything was thought of. Breakfast was very well taken care of. We will definitely come back again : )
Fine place close to Arnhem
Fine place to stay that we experienced very hospitable. The location is in a quiet and wooded area just outside Arnhem, even on a bike it is easy to do plusminus 30 min to the center. The lodges are minimalistic but stylish, the greenery outside attracts most of the attention which is nice and soothing. I would recommend this place to anyone looking for the tranquility or someone who still wants the possibility to be in Arnhem quickly.
Incredibly nice new accommodation, the cottages have been there since spring 2022. Very nice concept and very friendly and helpful staff. Beautiful location in the forest, it is quiet and you can hear the drops falling on the roof very atmospherically when it rains. Slept like a rose. Breakfast at home was tasteful. Absolutely recommended!
The arrival, the cordiality, the beautiful surroundings, the incredibly beautiful and comfortable lodge overlooking the forest. The people who have created this place with so much love and taste and run my so much pleasure. We felt very much at home and would love to come back again!
Top location to relax
Plus points: Ideal place to unwind. Very friendly and spontaneous reception. Breakfast very extensive and delicious. The room contains everything you need. Cars must be parked in front and not allowed to drive in the woods to the rooms. This makes it quiet all day. Transportation is provided to take your luggage from the car to the room. Minuses - Small tip is to provide an ashtray.
