For an exceptional back to basics countryside experience you should go to the village of De Heen, on the border of North Brabant and Zeeland. Just the trip to your overnight accommodation makes it a place you won’t readily forget. The sustainable camping rafts are tucked away among the reeds of the Steenbergsche Vliet and can only be reached by canoe. Get in and pedal thorough the silent countryside to your shelter. The rafts are provided with camping equipment so be sure to take some tasty food and drinks to enjoy at sunset. When you wake up the next morning, you can enjoy the views of the smooth water and numerous water birds.

3. Sleep at high altitude in a harbour crane

  • Bossche Kraan, Tramkade
  • Stel bij de beschilderde silo's op de Tramkade in 's-Hertogenbosch.

When you think of a harbour crane, a romantic night away may not be the first thing that comes to mind. But you would be mistaken! The ‘Bossche Kraan (crane) is right by the water on the Tramkade, located on the outskirts of the historic city centre of 's-Hertogenbosch. It is a luxury two-person hotel room at 15 metres altitude. The room has charming furnishings and is equipped with all modern conveniences. The thing that makes an overnight stay here even more spectacular is that the crane rotates! So, you can choose the view you would like to see! Sunset with a view of the impressive St John’s Cathedral is always a success!

4. Spend the night in an historic aeroplane

  • B&B Friendship, slapen in een vliegtuig

Sleeping in an aeroplane may not sound like the most romantic ide, but you will find out that it is in Brabant, and that’s without even taking a night flight. In Hoogerheide, located amid De Brabantse Wal Nature Reserve between Rotterdam and Antwerp, there is a Fokker F27 ‘Friendship’ from 1961. It has been transformed into a luxury suite for heavenly nights. The beautifully renovated 25-metre-long Fokker exudes the atmosphere of the 1960s but is equipped with all modern comforts.
