In 1930, De Witte Bergen, named after the opposite white sand hills, was opened. The tea house quickly became a popular inn for cyclists and walkers. Before, during or after the bike ride, they already came to enjoy a snack.

Bowling alley

Due to its popularity, the tea house, called De Witte Bergen, then flourished as a café-restaurant with bowling alleys. These bowling alleys made way for hotel rooms in the 1960s. This made it an even more attractive place for both business and leisure guests. De Witte Bergen underwent the most radical metamorphosis in the 1960s, when the bowling alleys were replaced by hotel rooms. This increased the appeal to both business and leisure guests.

Meetings, parties and dine

Nowadays, Van der Valk Hotel and Restaurant De Witte Bergen is a modern catering establishment. During the day, the 35 multifunctional rooms were mainly used for meetings, conferences and trade fairs. In the evenings they formed the backdrop for celebrations and parties. The restaurant, which has retained its cozy intimate atmosphere, is busy seven days a week from early morning until late at night. The number of hotel rooms has grown to 140, each of them spacious rooms and suites equipped with every possible luxury.

Unique location

The location is unique and central in the country, easily accessible, equipped with ample parking facilities, but fortunately still adjacent to an extensive nature reserve.
The special thing about the location is that it borders on an extensive nature reserve, called Het Gooi. Het Gooi runs from the northern end of the Gooimeer to the provincial border at Hollansche Rading, fifteen kilometers to the south. The Goois nature reserve is formed by approximately 40 nature areas in the outlying areas of the municipalities of Bussum, Blaricum, Hilversum, Huizen, Laren and Naarden. This rural area is largely managed as a nature reserve.
