New! Martin's Rentmeesterij @ Bilzen
The hotel − created in the Commandery’s 13th-century estate agent’s house − will be augmented by a contemporary wing that plays on the contrasts between the strength of the past and the purity of more recent developments.
With its 69 guest rooms and 3 junior suites (in the historical part), salons, AKKO restaurant and pleasant terrace, bar and meeting and banquet facilities, it will lend itself particularly well to holidays, business events, receptions and wedding dinners. The hotel will also have a wellness area with pool and will look out onto a pleasant courtyard and extensive wooded gardens.
Things to see and do from Bilzen
Martin's Rentmeesterij is a tourist attraction in its own right. The Commandery of Alden Biesen was built between the 13th and the 18th centuries by the Teutonic Knights − a German Hospitaller brotherhood, which later became a military order. The site has since been beautifully restored and converted into a cultural, tourist and conference centre. It was listed in 2000. The Castle and its various infrastructures are all accessible from Martin's Rentmeesterij, via a pleasant walk through the estate's gardens.
The region around the site is also bursting with activities. First of all, for nature lovers, with its natural parks, orchards and bike paths that invite discovery on two wheels. The town of Bilzen also delights shoppers (Maasmechelen Village is nearby) and lovers of fine food, culture and history.
Martin's Rentmeesterij is just 10 minutes from Maastricht, and less than 30 minutes from Liège, Tongeren and Hasselt. It is also very easy to reach from Cologne, Bonn, Dusseldorf and Eindhoven (1.5 hours by car).
