For most people, it’s the time of the year that they like to cocoon at home. But others pack their bags and book a city trip around the holidays. We share 8x cities in the Netherlands to spend your winter break in the best hotels. Looking for some me-time, or a romantic getaway with your partner? Whatever your reason is, the Specials of Inntel Hotels offer everything for an unforgettable holiday.

Amsterdam lights up on darker days

From the beginning of December till the end of January, the Amsterdam Light Festival is the place to be on dark winter days. During these days you can take extraordinary walks along or boat trips on the canals. The light artworks can be admired along several walking routes throughout the city. The Amsterdam Light Festival Special with a boat trip and overnight stay can be booked at Inntel Hotels Amsterdam Landmark or Inntel Hotels Amsterdam Centre.

Magical, colourful Zaandam

Spend your winter holidays at the Zaanse Schans, a ‘world heritage site’ of the Netherlands. During the winter months, it’s extraordinary to stroll around town. Imagine colourful houses with decorative lights and hot chocolate in idyllic villages. Expand the experience? Enjoy a full-course dinner in Inntel Hotels Amsterdam Zaandam with the Christmas Special.

Cheers! Have a toast in ‘Eindhoven, the city of lights’

Enjoy art, design and bubbles in Inntel Hotels Art Eindhoven. Not only are art expositions on display throughout the year, but also the industrial history of the city can be felt and seen anywhere. Sleep in an Art Spa Room with an iconic round whirlpool. With the Bubbles & Bath Special, you’ll be awaited with a bottle of bubbles when arriving in your room. Let the holidays begin!

Get a breath of fresh air, dine and relax on the beach of Scheveningen

Scheveningen is a place for the ‘active city tripper’, who likes to take a walk after eating for three, to prevent any excess pounds. Walk from the hotel to a winter lodge for a cosy drink by the sea, and then dine extensively in Bar Brasserie Willem I with the Happy Days Special in Inntel Hotels Den Haag Marina Beach.

Surrounded by water in Rotterdam

Go sightseeing along the skyline of Rotterdam by water taxi or visit various restaurants and bars in the ports. This large city is full of undiscovered places to escape to. The place to enjoy a world-class festive dinner with a view of the water. Spend the night at the 5-star Mainport by Inntel Hotels with the Dine & Devine Special. Or opt-in for a panoramic view of the skyline with the Rotterdam Highlights Special at Inntel Hotels Rotterdam Centre. That’s a winter holiday in the Netherlands like no other!

Retail therapy for (Christmas) gifts in Utrecht

For the best shopping experience, you should visit Hoog Catharijne, the biggest (indoor) shopping mall in Utrecht. With bags full of festive gifts for family and friends, Inntel Hotels Utrecht Centre is always just a 5-minute walk. Check-in to your room and get ready for a refreshing dip in the infinity pool. After a night in an ultra-comfortable DOUXE bed and an extensive breakfast with bubbles, this “therapy session” is complete.

After a long day in the bustling city it’s time to relax. Is your dose of Christmas spirit fully stocked? With the In Room Dining Special you’ll enjoy a 3-course dinner in your room.
