ABOUT US

You will find our boutique hotel in the center of Alphen in the former headmaster’s house from 1895.

The building initially served as a residence for the headmaster of the primary school of what was then still called Aarlanderveen. Until in 1918 Aarlanderveen merged with Oudshoorn and Alphen and thus the municipality of Alphen aan den Rijn was created. More than a hundred years and various destinations further, we, Niels and Laura Aben, have transformed the building with much love and attention into a modern inn with a luxurious twist, in which we have brought back the old warm atmosphere of yesteryear. The Stadsherberg is intended as a meeting place where everyone, young and old, is welcome to eat, drink and spend the night. Alone or with each other. We offer you a home feeling with the hospitality and personal attention of an old inn and the luxury and comfort of a modern boutique hotel.

In Alphen it is a concept; “One more round”. Take a nice walk around the Zegerplas or in the forest where grazing Galloway cows have their home. Prefer a little more action? You can surf or sail. The water ski slope and climbing park are there for the real daredevils. In Park Zegersloot, nature and recreation go hand in hand. The best events in Alphen aan den Rijn:

Alphen is the ideal place for a holiday in the Green Heart; a versatile Dutch landscape full of walking and cycling paths and many sailing routes. You can walk endlessly in the Green Heart. Discover the unique Molenviergang route, for example, or climb over bridges and fences on the farmland paths. The famous Roman Limespad even passes our hotel. Would you rather go out by bike? For example, explore the newly created Bentwoud Nature Reserve, the largest forest area in the Randstad with over 80 kilometers of cycling and walking paths. Many special birds, butterflies and plants can be found there. The Green Heart has more water than Friesland. A canoe or whisper boat on the Nieuwkoopse Plassen is highly recommended. Sail on the Kaag, sail the Tulip Route in a rented dinghy or join the guide on a cruise along the nurseries in Boskoop. Whether you are walking, cycling or exploring the water, you will experience peace and space in the Green Heart.

If you say Gouda, you say cheese …… and stroopwafels.
Gouda the “must go city” for foodies. The historic city center of Gouda is compact with many small medieval streets along the canals. Reachable by car or train within half an hour. Gouda is more than worth a visit Rotterdam, which some call the New York of the Netherlands. Port city. Architect. Innovative.
