Moreover, cities such as Maastricht, Aachen, Liegé or Tongeren are within small driving reach.




Hiking tours: the area is particularly suitable for beautiful walks such as the “Krijtlandpad” which leads through various villages and a varied environment. We are happy to tell you about the various hiking routes.


Bicycle tours: did you know you’ll be in Maastricht within an hour? There are plenty of cycling routes available for both the sporty cyclist (mountain bike routes) and the relaxed cyclist (e-bike). Want to rent an e-bike? Please contact us, we will make sure that the e-bikes are ready for you upon arrival! Of course you can also bring your own bikes. You can place them free of charge in our covered and enclosed bike shed.


Cross-country skiing or skiing: in “de hoge vennen” (Belgium) you can always hike, but in winter this area changes into a busy and cozy cross-country skiing and skiing area! Fancy skiing or cross-country skiing but not in hundreds of kilometers of driving? From Hotel De Plank you will be there within an hour!


Car trips: the “Mergelland” route is mostly driven by car, passing through picturesque villages with centuries-old white half-timbered houses. Beautiful views, monasteries, castles and of course a wide choice of restaurants and cafes along the way. Feel free to ask.


City trips: Hotel De Plank is not only close to famous Limburg attractions such as Slenaken or Maastricht. Cities such as Aachen (Aachen), Liège (Liège) and Tongeren are a short distance away. But Aubel is also worth a visit with the Abbey of Val Dieu, known for its beers and cheeses!
