Review: Hof van Saksen, We Love this Place!

Thanks to the Prata family who left us this review of their week at Hof van Saksen in October:

“We spent one week at the Hof van Saksen, together with our 8 and 4,5 year olds, after having it recommended by Little Clogs Holidays. What a great choice for the mid-term break!

Living in Germany, close to the Netherlands border, we have had already seen quite many parks, including Efteling and Beekse Bergen, which we absolutely love!

We are in general very big fans of holidays spent with children in the Netherlands. Hof van Saksen has topped everything we had experienced so far!

This place is not only about entertaining the kids – with a great blend of activities from archaeology, technology, climbing, arts, mini-golf, a wonderful indoor playground and the fabulous waterslides – but also pampering (tired) parents with nice cuisine and wellness offers.

This place is suitable for parents with newborns, as well as families with teenagers, there is something for everyone! We had some colourful October days with quality time for the entire family and we felt there extremely welcome and pampered!

We will definitely go back to explore more the surroundings, there is plenty of activities in the nearby, which we did not manage to check out as we liked so much what we had found within the resort.

Thank you, Little Clogs, for the great recommendation! We further recommend it to anyone without any reservation!”


The Prata family drove from Germany to Hof van Saksen but this resort is very doable without a car too as you can get a train directly from Amsterdam airport to Assen which takes 1h50 and then it’s just 15 minutes in a taxi to Hof van Saksen. There is everything you could need there and you can hire bikes to get out and about too.
