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,  

due to the new decision on the Corona situation by the Dutch government, we are unfortunately forced extend the closure of our hotel up to the 25th of January 2022.

We had all been looking forward to an enjoyable Christmas season and are very sorry that now all of us will have to make new plans for Christmas and New Year's Eve. But a wonderful carefree summer in our hotel park with plenty of guests was a foretaste of what to expect once we have left Corona behind us. At this point also a heartfelt thank you for your loyalty!  

Should there be any news in the meantime, effecting the opening of our hotel, we will keep you informed.  

We wish you a peaceful and quiet Advent season, Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.  

See you soon and above all: stay healthy!   
Yours Henning & Helga Claassen and the whole team of Parkhotel de Wiemsel.
