Make a self catering cottage or holiday rental in Gelderland, Netherlands your home away from home

Gelderland is in the east central Netherlands, south of Overijssel. The capital city is Arnhem with a history going back over 1500 years. Much of the area is given over to forests and Natural Park reserves making it ideal for quiet walks and bicycle rides around the delightful area. The Gelderland region has some fine old castles and palaces around this largely agricultural region and many museums to enjoy.

Things to Do in Gelderland

The nature reserves of the Gelderland provide a wonderful area for walking along the scenic terrain. Cycling and roller blading are also popular activities in the Netherlands. The Kroller-Muller Museum Park has hundreds of white bicycles which can be used to get around this peaceful natural reserve where cars are largely banned. It provides visitors with the opportunity to spot the birds and wildlife in the area from the tiny bicycle lanes which run through forested areas, sand dunes, marshes and lakes. As with most places in the Netherlands, sampling the local cheeses is a real pleasure, especially the mature Edam and Gouda cheeses.

Places to Visit Around Gelderland

One of the oldest centres close to your Gelderland holiday home is Nijmegen, once a Roman military camp and now a large city. Visitors may enjoy the Museum of African Culture and more topically, the National Bicycle Museum along with Velorama which has more than 250 veteran cycles on display. For art lovers, the collection of Modern Art at the Kroller-Muller Museum is a must-see in Otterlo. Arnhem was largely destroyed in World War II and the restoration of some of its monuments continues. The rich heritage of the area can be seen in the many palaces and castles including the Palace van Loo in Apeldoorn, the Huis Bergh Castle and the Bronkhorst. Amsterdam is also within easy reach on a day trip from Gelderland where canal boat trips, museums, churches, flower markets and old houses can all be enjoyed.

Absolutely fantastic

5 of 5
After returning from our trip to Amsterdam I have only positive things to say about Het Gein! It is right on the outskirts of the city and the views are over fields of sheep and cows, the property is even better than the website and pictures show! It is approx a 20 min walk from Gein metro station. You will want for nothing at het gein as everything you could think of is provided from a full array of cutlery and condiments to dishwasher tablets and also washing powder for the machine, Stephanie popped round on the first night to check everything was ok and was easily contactable to sort out any problems which we had, we will definitely be returning. An absolutely fantastic property in an amazing setting

Fabulous property, perfect holiday...

5 of 5
We have just had a wonderful week at the Aqua Drome - possibly our best ever family holiday!! The owners were extremely easy to deal with and the property itself is beautiful - very spacious, well appointed and comfortable. There was everything we needed, and more - we absolutely loved it. We had been in Amsterdam the previous week so it was a welcome change of scene to be in the countryside. We spent a couple of days just relaxing and exploring, swimming in the river from the deck and boating from the Aqua Drome's own beach. We cycled to Den Bosch for a day, spent a day kayaking at nearby Biesbosch and another at the Efteling theme park. On the only rainy day three of us took a trip to one of the many nearby interesting museums (at Overloon) and the other three caught a train to Amsterdam - there was something for everyone. We had fabulous weather which was a bonus, and we easily could have stayed for another week. Thank you again to Adri and Nelly, I hope we will be able to visit again soon!
