In 1930, the establishment known as De Witte Bergen, named after the nearby white sand hills, was inaugurated. Originally conceived as a tea house, it swiftly gained popularity among cyclists and pedestrians who frequented the inn to savor snacks before, during, or after their journeys.

Evolution into a Hotel

Owing to its widespread appeal, the tea house, De Witte Bergen, evolved into a café-restaurant with accompanying bowling alleys. However, in the 1960s, the bowling alleys were replaced by hotel rooms, marking a significant transformation. This transition enhanced its allure for both business and leisure patrons, solidifying its reputation as a multifaceted hospitality venue.

Meetings, Celebrations, and Dining

Today, Van der Valk Hotel and Restaurant De Witte Bergen stands as a contemporary catering establishment. The 21 multifunctional rooms primarily serve as venues for meetings, conferences, and trade fairs during the day, transforming into settings for celebrations and parties in the evenings. The restaurant, maintaining its cozy and intimate ambiance, remains bustling seven days a week, catering from early morning until late at night. The accommodation now boasts 162 spacious rooms and suites, each equipped with luxurious amenities.

Unique Central Location

Positioned centrally in the country, easily accessible, and featuring ample parking facilities, the hotel remains closely connected to an expansive nature reserve. Its distinctiveness lies in its proximity to the extensive Het Gooi nature reserve, stretching from the northern tip of Gooimeer to the provincial border at Hollandsche Rading, covering fifteen kilometers to the south. Comprising around 40 nature areas within the municipalities of Bussum, Blaricum, Hilversum, Huizen, Laren, and Naarden, this rural expanse is carefully managed as a nature reserve.
