Be surprised by the energy @Papendal
Seeing is believing
We know Papendal is unique in its sort. Its uniqueness is not merely reflected in the forest surroundings, our short distance from the city centre of Arnhem or the fact that the area is rich in culture. But that uniqueness can be found in the energy here @Papendal. You can feel it upon arrival, beyond words. You want to stay here. This is where you can relax, escape from your daily routine and recharge your battery. Staying in the heart of Dutch sporting excellence makes it even more unique. Of course you don’t need to be an (elite)athlete to benefit from all that Hotel Papendal has to offer. Experience Papendal for yourself, together with your friends, relatives or family. We guarantee you will be full of positive energy when you look back on a wonderful and relaxed stay.
Always in motion
Staying active doesn’t require any effort @Papendal. The area of Papendal is worth exploring. All within a radius of 7 kilometres! Enjoy nature at the Posbank or explore De Hoge Veluwe National Park on one of the free-to-use white bicycles. The city of Arnhem is rich in history, many traces of which can still be seen today. Therefore, cultural activities are always within reach. An example is the Airborne Museum. Shopping in the capital of the province of Gelderland is an absolute must; visit the nice boutique shops in the seven streets or go to the fashion quarter of Arnhem. There is plenty to do with the family as well. We can recommend Burger’sZoo or the Open Air Museum. There is much to do @Papendal. With the app 60M2Rio, an interactive game developed in the run-up to the Olympics in Rio, you will get to know the grounds of Papendal in an athletic way. Golfers among us can hit a ball at golf club “the Edese” and if you would rather play recreational golf, then try Pitch & Putt.
