What is there to do in and around Ommen?
Paping Hotel & Spa is located 600 meters from the charming center of Ommen, where you settle in a surprising part of Overijssel - Het Vechtdal. Surrounded by greenery and bathed in history, Paping Hotel & Spa is right in the heart of this natural, almost un-Dutch region.
The ideal base for a versatile weekend away. Explore the area by sloop, cycle past picturesque villages such as Vilsteren and Dalfsen, estates and castles or take a nice 'detour' through the woods and heathland. Our spa hotel is within walking distance of the NS train station, which means that the Hanseatic cities of Kampen, Zwolle and Dalfsen are also easily accessible and these cities are more than worth a visit.
The spa hotel is located at the entrance of the beautiful Laerbossen. Centuries-old oaks lead the way to 'our' estate Het Laer. This beautiful national monument has been watching over the huge red beeches of the estate for hundreds of years, or vice versa?
Pieterpad – Stages Hardenberg-Ommen-Hellendoorn
Pieterpad walkers are also at the right place at Paping Hotel & Spa. The routes of the Hardenberg-Ommen-Hellendoorn stages run directly past our wellness hotel. Come to us for a cup of coffee, a delicious lunch or dinner. Do you want more relaxation after an active day or plan a walking weekend away? Then book a wellness overnight stay and make use of our extensive sauna and beauty center with, among other things, an indoor swimming pool, a hot whirlpool and a Finnish outdoor sauna.
Sail on the Overijsselse Vecht – rent a boat at hotel De Zon
Walked a part of the Pieterpad, relax in our wellness and explore the area from the water? Then rent a boat at our sister Hotel de Zon on the river Vecht. Go out on the water by boat and take a well-filled picnic basket with you. Ask our reception for the possibilities.
Castle Eerde near our wellness hotel
In the category what to do in Ommen: inside view. Not only impressive from the outside, surrounded by stately avenues and a beautiful castle garden with flower mosaic and orchard, you can also feel the grandeur of yesteryear inside. The real showpieces are the floating staircase in the hall - the only one in the Netherlands -, the impressive handmade tapestries and the marble floors.
