From Buitenplaats De Mechelerhof, you can undertake various sporting excursions. Swimming, mountain biking, cycling or walking for example. But there is even more to do, such as swimming in an outdoor swimming pool or skiing in an indoor ski hall.
Enjoying a swim
When the weather is hot, you want to cool off! Or if the weather is less clement, a day at an indoor swimming pool is also great fun. We have listed a number of swimming pools in the area for you:
- Gulpen: Mosaqua
Near our holiday park you will find Mosaqua subtropical swimming paradise. (Free) tickets available at the reception Mechelerhof.

Indoor pool (27.5 x 12.5 metres), built in 1911 in Art Nouveau style, still in its original state.
Cycling and hiking
Also for cycling and walking, Buitenplaats De Mechelerhof is the place to be. In fact, we love cycling and walking so much, that we have created several facilities for them at our Buitenplaats. The hills of South Limburg are perfect for an intensive bike ride or a relaxing walk. See our cycling and hiking page for more information about routes, for example.
On the slopes for skiing
You can also hit the slopes in South Limburg. No, not on one of the hills that the region knows. But in SnowWorld, in Landgraaf. Tie under the thin skis, grab the snowboard and brave the snow. Ideal for a day out during your holiday in Limburg.
