Why is Hoorn so romantic?

Domestic city trip full of romance in the historic city of Hoorn

Do you also want to go out wonderfully romantic as a couple, but do you also lack inspiration? No problem! We have put together some nice inspiration especially for you. Surprise your loved one with a wonderful overnight stay at Van der Valk Hotel Hoorn and go out and about!

Are you not yet familiar with the city of Hoorn and would you like to know what to see and do? Then read on quickly.

Hoorn is located on the beautiful Markermeer, the Markermeer is named after the former island of Marken which is located in the southwest of the lake, but the peninsula is now connected to the hinterland. You can walk and enjoy the beautiful view. Along the walking paths you will find opportunities to take a break or to continue your walk through the historic city center and discover all its hidden gems.

Would you rather choose to explore the city on an (electric) bicycle or perhaps something more exciting on an e-scooter? Which can! We offer the possibility to rent a bicycle or e-scooter at the reception. To complete your outing, we offer delicious lunch-to-go packages that you can easily take with you and enjoy on the go. Are you heading out to the city? Then you should definitely not miss the sunset in the harbor. Grab a nice hot chocolate to-go and enjoy this breathtaking and romantic view. Would you rather do an active and sporty activity? Fortunately, you can still exercise outside in Hoorn! Next to the hotel is a professional tennis court that you can use as a guest of Hotel Hoorn. If you do not have the right things with you, you can rent them at the reception. Aren't you such a tennis fan? Then there is a beautiful indoor skating rink, the Westfries, at 800 meters, where you and your loved one can enjoy a sporty afternoon on the irons. It is wise to make a reservation for the ice rink.

Once back to our beautiful hotel, you can enjoy a delicious dinner together. Hopefully this will be possible again in our atmospheric restaurant after 9 February. Not having to cook for an evening and having this done by the kitchen brigade of Van der Valk Hotel Hoorn. Afterwards you can choose to watch a good Netflix movie in your hotel room or to step into a heated bubble bath (if your hotel room has a bubble bath). Did you get hungry in the evening? Order our richly filled snack board and enjoy a relaxing evening in one of our luxurious hotel rooms. Come to Van der Valk Hotel Hoorn and experience all there is to do in our beautiful historic city of Hoorn.
