International recognition

Hotel De Wereld

Hotel De Wereld was already a listed building but now the Cultural Heritage Agency has designated it of 'international importance'.  This special status stresses the 'universal historical value' of the property, according to the agency, even though it is not of great architectural interest. In 1945 Prince Bernhard negotiated the capitulation of the Germans in Hotel de Wereld with the generals Foulkes, Reichelt and Blaskowitz.  Hotel De Wereld is owned by Wageningen UR and has been in use as a hotel and restaurant since 2004.
