Inspiration Tours

In our view, hospitality is something that you need to experience, do and undergo yourself. You need to taste it, smell it and feel it. It needs to awaken all your senses. This is why we arrange Hospitality Inspiration tours. These are short trips that allow participants to experience hospitality for themselves and to draw inspiration from entrepreneurs who have made hospitality an aspect of every part of their organisation, right down to the last detail. By listening to and learning from these entrepreneurs, you find out how you can develop hospitality and apply it to your own organisation.

The Hospitality Inspiration tours serve as a source of knowledge and inspiration. They are also an excellent idea for a team-building day. Tours are always customised to your needs and oriented towards the wishes and background of the participants.

Inspiration South-Limburg

Come and experience our own Teaching Hotel Château Bethlehem, run by first-year students at the Hotel Management School Maastricht. Even just sleeping in one of the unique rooms designed by both well-known and budding designers will provide an inspiring experience. The hotel’s restaurant is also very much worth a visit. The Teaching Hotel also has a number of conference rooms in which workshops can be held on hospitality or other subjects. Download the Boosts booklet [A1] [A1] for examples of workshops.

The Teaching Hotel can also be used as a base for inspiration tours held in South Limburg, the southernmost region of the Netherlands. From this base, visits can be made to the unique and innovative Kruisheren Hotel, Hotel Château St Gerlach and Château Neercanne, all owned by school alumnus and hospitality expert Camille Oostwegel, or to the innovative and organic Gulpener brewery. There are also plenty of other inspiring locations to visit in South Limburg. We put together the programme for each tour just for you.

Inspiration on the West Frisian island of Texel

Our Texel Inspiration tours offer you the chance to experience this island in the Wadden Sea in its purest form. You can enjoy its nature, its peace and quiet, the sea, the beaches, and also its culinary triumphs. Smell the sea air, comb the beach and explore the dunes, accompanied by people who live on the island. This tour is ideal for inspiration days, team building, strategic meetings or coaching sessions.

During the tour, you can opt to take part in a variety of activities, such as oyster gathering, shrimp fishing, painting or cheese-making. You can draw inspiration from hospitable entrepreneurs on the island during visits to a cheese maker, brewery or gin distillery, to give some examples. There is so much to experience on this beautiful and unique island. Our Hospitality Consultancy can also arrange for specific half-day sessions to cover particular subjects, taking the form of workshops, training courses or coaching sessions. Download the Boosts booklet for examples.
