The Secrets of Wool and the Cotton Path

Excitement & relaxation. Sport & Play. Culture & Nature. Digital & Old School... The municipality of Geldrop-Mierlo has been weaving it all together for years. Which isn't crazy. Together they have a rich history which seamlessly complements the other. In the last century, Mierlo provided the supply of wool for the weaving industry. Geldrop weaved the white 'gold' and transformed it into beautiful fabrics. A fruitful collaboration that grew into a flourishing textile industry, from which the fruits are still being reaped. Discover this colourful municipality for yourself.

Immerse yourself for 24 hours with the entire family in the rich textile history of this cosy Brabant municipality. 


Worked up an appetite? Dive into the gardens of Geldrop Castle. The atmospheric brasserie "Kasteelhoeve" - near the petting zoo - serves a delicious lunch on the garden terrace. Once the belly is filled, the doors of the castle are open for a guided tour. Travel back in time, when life looked very different. How? Discover it for yourself with an enthusiastic guide. And for those who have not yet stimulated the senses enough, there is a sensory garden. Next to the castle, you can go there for an exciting walk, where body and mind are sharpened. Crazy feeling ...

Now we're already out, how about an afternoon on safari? In Dierenrijk, you will go on a continental trip and you'll meet many animal species of all colours and sizes. From big game to small meerkats. Would you rather be the monkey yourself? Unleash the beast in the unique HUP hotel. The most sporty hotel in the Netherlands challenges you. Go wild on the indoor mini-golf course, trampolines, bowling alley, football field or in the monkey town. And when the 'tank' is dry, you can relax in the sauna, the swimming pool or in the attractively decorated lobby with a refreshing drink. Note: you will run out of time to discover everything. A nice alternative to the HUP Hotel is Bospark 't Wolfsven. A wonderful holiday park in the middle of the forest. And as you are used to from Roompot Holiday Parks, there is plenty to do here for the whole family. Whatever it will be: have fun!
