Hotel story

Hotel story

The desire to travel and the enthusiasm for art led Henning J. Claassen and his wife Helga to Ootmarsum a few years ago. Their favorite hotel "De Wiemsel" unfortunately went bankrupt in 2014. The enthusiasm for the place was so great, that they decided to buy the hotel, renovate it and reopen It in 2015… The beginning of an interesting story.

Dear guests,  

in view of the renewed official order of the Dutch government our hotel will have to remain closed until march 20th, 2021.

Of course, during this period we will continue to be available at any time for questions and bookings by phone (+31 (0)541-79 10 10) and e-mail ( and will be happy to advise you. We are aware that your travel plans will be significantly restricted until further notice. Existing bookings concerning the closure period will be rebooked or cancelled at your request without any problems. The same applies in case of an extension of the closure period, about which we will inform you in time.  

But there is already a special highlight waiting for you: Our all new Spa & Wellness with 3 different saunas, the "Ice Bucket Challenge" and the large panoramic rest area for adults for even more relaxation and feel-good moments in our hotel.

We look forward to seeing you again and from the bottom of our hearts “stay well”! 
Henning & Helga Claassen and the entire team of Parkhotel de Wiemsel.
