The Belvédère museum (Heerenveen-Oranjewoud) is located 22 kilometers from the hotel. The architecture of the building alone is worth a visit. This beautiful, elongated building with a view to the nature reserve behind it is very impressive and has also been awarded the BNA architecture prize.
Abstract and figurative nature experiences
Museum Belvédère is located on the edge of the wooded Oranjewoud. The collections focus on painting and artistic experiences of nature that are both abstract and figurative. The artists who exhibit their collections here often come from Friesland or the Northern Netherlands.
