Hotel de Wereld in Wageningen has played a major role in the history of the Netherlands; it’s where the
Germans negotiated their capitulation in 1945. For this reason a visit to this hotel feels like a journey through an important chapter of Dutch history. However, the history of the hotel dates right back to 1669, when the inn ‘De Wearelt’ became a as a stopping-place for travellers, horses and stage coaches, and, later, steam trams.
The spacious rooms have specially designed inte- riors in combination with modern art. For dinner you can visit Brasserie Le Monde.
Hotel de Wereld is a great base for walking or cycling tours through beautiful nature parks such as the Veluwe and the Betuwe, or for dis- covering the beautiful town of Wageningen. The nearby city of Arnhem offers plenty of cultural highlights and shopping opportunities.
*Arrival on Friday, Saturday and holidays €250 for 2
The name Le Monde refers to the French newspaper that was founded in 1944 at the behest of General Charles de Gaulle, after the German army was ousted from Paris during the Second World War. The first edition appeared on 19 December 1944. Of course, Le Monde is also French for ‘the world’, which is the name of the hotel, De Wereld, so the choice of name for the new brasserie is hardly a coincidence. Brasserie Le Monde serves authentic and traditional dishes with French cuisine as its inspiration, mainly using seasonal ingredients from the immediate area, and wherever possible organic. Honest food with great flavour!
The restaurant is opened from Monday to Sunday.
A spacious terrace, sheltered by mature chestnut trees, faces the street. Weather permitting, lunch and dinner are served here at Brasserie Le Monde.
From Hotel De Wereld you can explore the region’s nature, culture and art hot spots. The natural beauty of the Veluwe and the Betuwe are well within reach.
