Combine the best of both worlds: the cosiness of the city with the romance of the beach! In the past, the fishing village of Katwijk aan Zee and the more agricultural Katwijk aan den Rijn were different places. Today they form the municipality of Katwijk, together with Rijnsburg, Katwijk-Noord and Valkenburg. However, the close-knit fishing community is still very tangible in Katwijk aan Zee. Katwijk has a wealth of monuments and attractions, including churches, the Spinoza House, numerous museums and of course the dune landscape. The annual New Year's Dive also takes place in Katwijk. You start at Herberg Welgelegen in Valkenburg, a beautiful old villa on the Oude Rijn. It is the old town hall of Valkenburg, but now you can spend the night there, so you can see even more of the area the next day, by bike or on foot.

Herberg Welgelegen is a beautiful and rustic old villa on the Oude Rijn that has been completely renovated from a dream to better care. We believe in a lean, small-scale and entrepreneurial organization that is supported by the local community and aided by volunteers. Because our commercial activities generate income, we have to rely less and less on the wallet of the government or the clients. Finding and connecting each other as our guiding principle. Herberg Welgelegen, the former town hall of Valkenburg, has a rich history. The building was built in 1895 as a residence for the director of one of the tile factories that could be found along the Oude Rijn. Until the 1920s, Welgelegen functioned as the mayor's residence. After that, several families lived in the house.
