Welcome to The Dames van de Jonge

The Dames van de Jonge Hotel-Restaurant is situated on the edge of the waterway-rich village of Giethoorn. A family business where you will feel at home whenever you are in Giethoorn. From our mini marina, you can go boating in a whisper boat, water bus or launch across the canals and lakes of Giethoorn and surrounding areas.

Explore the natural areas of the Weerribben-Wieden National Park on a rented bike, or put on your walking boots and step out with a nice route map from the Giethoorn Tourist Office at the hotel.

Besides staying at the Dames you can also just come for coffee or tea, have a nice drink on the terrace by the water or in the garden room, and we serve special dinners, lunches and afternoon teas. If you would like to organise a meeting or a get-to-gether at the Dames we are always in for a party.
