In the middle of the protected Utrechtse Heuvelrug area, and surrounded by a centuries-old landscape dotted with castles and estates, lies De Hofstede.
Escape the hustle and bustle of the big cities, less than eleven kilometres from the city of Utrecht. You will be deceived, will imagine yourself in another world, when you have exclusive access to Hofstede De Nieuwe Donck, a beautiful 1923 farm.
Conduct your meetings for up to 20 people in absolute peace and anonymity, in a unique location that has been restored with authentic details and respect for the landscape. The warm, stylish interior combines well with art, and is well-integrated with the state-of-the-art-meeting equipment, all designed with a fine eye for the smallest detail.
The warm personal welcome in the homely, relaxed ambiance will be a lasting reminder of a successful meeting. Tranquillity and room for thought create social cohesiveness, and contribute positive contribution to the success of your meeting. A stroll through the adjacent Moersbergen forest is a great meeting break, and will have an inspiring effect on body and mind.
Sustainability to the max
Hofstede aims to contribute to the preservation of the flora and fauna that surround it. Meetings are organised in such a way that they do not impact negatively on or interfere with the surrounding nature. Hofstede sets great store by preserving the peace and quiet.
The venue also puts great effort into reducing pollution and energy and water consumption. During cold months, additional heating is provided by burning the wood obtained from maintenance activities in the surrounding area. The food & beverages offered are fresh and, therefore, healthy products, mainly produced in the immediate region.
This care for the environment extends to the recommendation to use public transport. Hofstede arranges free transportation to and from the nearby train station.
Get away from the influences you encounter in daily life, and find peace and inspiration in the tranquillity of a traditional Dutch farm. This is what this little gem just outside Utrecht offers your attendees.
