Bed and Breakfast de Stadsboerderij Harderwijk is also a fine base for the visitors of the many large events in the surrounds, events like Lowlands or the international Hanzedagen in Kampen (2017). And also for visitors for Dolfinarium or theme park Walibi world in Biddinghuizen.
This also counts for hikers. Two stages from the Westerborkpad (from Putten to Nunspeet) start and end at the railway station in Harderwijk.
Paths like het Zuiderzeepad are perfectly reachable by public transport (also on Sunday’s). The same counts for multiple Clog paths (klompenpaden). Visitors who like to ride the bicycle, will know that the Zuiderzee route, or a tour around the IJsselmeer, won’t be far.
The history of our Stadsboerderij goes back for over one hundred years from now. Just like the characteristic farmhouses in the neighborhood that was called Het Nachthok (night hutch). The wheelbarrow farmers brought their cows and sheep there after sunset to stay the night. That’s why it’s called Het Nachthok. The neighborhood still breathes the atmosphere of those historical days.
Animals were Also kept on the fields of the B&B itself. The sizeable, old “barn” was a former cattle barn. Two apartments were formed and redecorated after a big renovation. We called the both apartments Tarwe (wheat) and Rogge (rye), which suit the past excellent. You are able to find an extended explanation about Het Nachthok in one of our apartments. A few hundred meters from the apartments you can find the bus and train station, that makes us easy to reach by public transport. Beneath you can see some of the things you can visit in our beautiful Harderwijk.
