The front desk of EuroParcs Resort De Utrechtse can be found at Laan van Laag Kanje 1 in the village of Maarn. You can talk to our staff not only for checking in and out, but also with regard to other questions about outings in the region, opening hours of our facilities, and so on.
Beautiful trips lie at the proverbial doorstep. Splash around with the whole family at the Bosbad Henschotermeer forest lake, at walking distance from EuroParcs Resort De Utrechtse Heuvelrug. In the immediate vicinity of the resort, hikers and cyclists can also challenge themselves by tackling steep hills like the Zonheuvel, the Maarnse Berg, the Sint-Helenaheuvel or the Doornse Kaap. Another eye-catcher is the artificial island built from glacially-deposited rocks in the Zanderij Maarn lake: a sand excavation lying west of the Maarnse Berg. The island, named “Zwerfsteneneiland” (Wandering Rock Island) for the unusual rocks it was built with, can be visited with a guide.
Another ingredient that makes the already very versatile surroundings of EuroParcs Resort De Utrechtse Heuvelrug more appealing is the lake Wander Rock Island was built in. Just take a few steps outside the holiday park, and you’ll find yourself in the middle of nature, coming face to face with deer, badgers or birds of prey just minutes from the resort.
The village of Maarn itself is also an eye-catcher, as the last surviving garden town in the Netherlands. In former times, these were working-class houses for employees of the NS (the Dutch Railway Company), characterised by small living spaces and very large gardens. The idea was that employees would be able to supplement their wages by growing their own produce.
Our receptionists can give you many more tips about beautiful hiking and cycling tours in the natural surroundings, and they can also recommend tours to do by car to visit the many interesting places, small and large, in the vicinity of holiday park De Utrechtse Heuvelrug.
