Owner of Savelberg
My Route du Bonheur… in the Netherlands

Henk Savelberg has the distinction of having won a Michelin star in four different restaurants across the Netherlands. He has been running his eponymous restaurant in Voorburg since 1999.

I come from a mining family from the Dutch province of Limburg. It was after completing my military service in the navy that I discovered the restaurant business, in France and the Netherlands. Today I live in The Hague, just a few kilometres from my restaurant. This allows me to enjoy the city, the North Sea and the countryside too. This closeness to nature is something that nearly all people in the Netherlands enjoy in their everyday lives, making the most of every moment to walk or cycle along the canals, the polders or the backstreets of the towns, which even today call to mind the Golden Age.

My Route du Bonheur
Stage 1 : 1 day, 1 night

Château St. Gerlach

Maastricht's country estate
Château St. Gerlach
A monastery was built on the burial site of the soldier-turned-hermit Gerlach (Gerlachus van Houtem) to which pilgrims came to gather at the Saint’s tomb. In the centuries that followed, the estate was home to an exclusive convent for noblewomen. Finally in 1997, the property was converted into a luxury hotel. The spacious rooms built on the former smallholding now look onto the Baroque gardens. Today, an arboretum of fruit trees, a rose garden, swimming pool, spa, bistro and restaurant form one of the most prestigious settings in the country.

Henri-Chapelle American Cemetery and Memorial

As a history buff, I have always been very interested in the battles that took place in this region during the 20th century. In Henri-Chapelle you’ll find a powerful cemetery where almost 8 000 American soldiers are laid to rest (of 17 600 deaths that occurred here).

On the route...

Relais & Chateaux Da Vinci, Maasbracht

A recent addition to Relais & Châteaux, this establishment has established itself as one of the best restaurants in the Netherlands. With Margo Reuten in charge of cuisine, and Petro Kools, the wine, it harmoniously mixes modernity and inventiveness. The owners have created a locale that naturally blends design and taste.

Kasteel Engelenburg

The splendour and delights of a castle in a forest
Kasteel Engelenburg
Owned by Johan and Carin Agricola, this very beautiful nineteenth century castle – the first stones of which were laid in the sixteenth century – has, over the years, played host to the Prince of Orange and numerous famous figures. The 250-hectare grounds include a private forest and a lovely golf course (nine holes / par 72). In the evening, dinner is served in a splendid nineteenth century conservatory, after which you can choose from the 300 Scottish single malts on the menu.

Paintings by Van Gogh, Kröller-Müller Museum

This museum, opened in 1938, is home to the world’s second largest collection of paintings by Vincent Van Gogh. The Potato Eaters, the portrait of Paul-Eugène Milliet and the Flowering Orchards hang alongside masterpieces by Seurat, Picasso, Gauguin and Ensor. Located in the heart of the De Hoge Veluwe national park, the museum also boasts splendid gardens, adorned with sculptures by Rodin, Dubuffet and Jan Fabre.

On the route...

The dolmens of Drenthe

With some of them weighing up to forty tonnes, these dolmens are believed to have been brought here over 5000 years ago. The fifty or so megaliths form incredible tombs, whose origins are still unknown to us. To understand how they were moved here and find out about the tribes who are believed to have brought these Hunebedden deep into the forest, visit the Hunebedden Infocentrum National Museum, located in the neighbouring town of Borger.

Landgoed Hotel Het Roode Koper

The woods of Veluwe envelop our villa with their charm
Landgoed Hotel Het Roode Koper
This is my kind of place, far away from everything. Come to this 3000 hectare estate in the heart of the magnificent Veluwe forest to walk, cycle or ride horses. In this unspoilt environment you might come across a family of squirrels or deer. Today it is a haven of peace where visitors come to relax and get away from it all, in the heart of the Netherlands.

Koningsdag, King’s Day

In 2013, Queen Beatrix abdicated in favour of her son Willem-Alexander. With his coronation, the date of the national holiday has changed to 27 April, the young king’s birthday. Come and join in the mass celebrations that take place on the streets and canals of Amsterdam. The entire city is decked out in orange and there is a very warm and friendly atmosphere. Boat trips, picnics, beer and laughter are on the menu until late into the night.

Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam

This museum, one of the most beautiful in the world, is a must see. After almost ten years of renovations, the Rijksmuseum opened its doors once again in spring 2013. It is a pleasure to rediscover the masterpieces of the Golden Age of Dutch painting in this bright and modern setting. There are twenty four rooms and 1.5 kilometres of galleries to explore, each more beautiful than the last, where you will find Rembrandt’s The Night Watch, Vermeer’s The Milkmaid as well as magnificent portraits by Frans Hals.

Restaurant De Librije

A culinary great escape
Restaurant De Librije
Located in a sixteenth century former convent which was converted into a prison in the eighteenth century. This is one of the few hotels on this trip located in the centre of a town. Above all, it also boasts one of the finest restaurants in the country. Since 2008, Jonnie Boer has been offering brilliant and modern cuisine, while his wife Thérèse, a renowned sommelier, chooses the wines to complement his creations.

Relais & Chateaux De Lindenhof Restaurant met Suites

Exceptional hospitality in an idyllic Dutch setting
Relais & Chateaux De Lindenhof Restaurant met Suites
I have been friends with Martin Kruithof for more than twenty years. Along with his wife Marja, this Grand Chef welcomes you like a member of the family. His dishes are at once ingenious and elegant, and the wine cellar is certainly one of the country’s best. On fine days you can eat on the terrace, overlooking magnificent landscaped gardens, lulled by birdsong and the sound of the canals.

A bicycle ride

Some clichés are hard to resist, especially two-wheeled ones. As the advertisement says, Holland is biking and biking is Holland. In our country, there are 18 million bicycles for 16 million inhabitants. Everywhere and all the time, we ride our bikes. The terrain is flat, with almost no hills, and some 29,000 kilometres of cycle paths allow you to travel through a wide variety of landscapes. Whenever I can, I climb on my bike and go for a ride.
