A great time in the heart of Twente

Hampshire Hotel - City Hengelo is easy to reach by car and train. Ideal for a weekend away in the heart of Twente. Certainly if you really fancy a shop till you drop. In Hengelo itself there are surprisingly attractive and original shops, which are included in the special shopping walk route (highly recommended!). But there’s also perfect shopping in various cities just over the German border.

You can cycle to your heart’s content in the Twente countryside. Pump up the tyres to cycle over undulating roads, through ancient forests, along meadows, fens and streams. There are all kinds of great cycle routes in the area surrounding Hampshire Hotel - City Hengelo, and many great places to walk, too, including Twickel castle with its 4,000-hectare estate, past historic gardens and various museums. And after a long day outdoors you will certainly have earned a delicious glass of wine or beer at the bar of Star Café Diner.

Along paths and lanes!

The hotel is in a perfect location: in the heart of Hengelo, next to the theatre and close to the station. Hengelo is also the destination for a weekend of cycling and walking in the Twente countryside. Immediately outside the city you’ll find expansive forests, beautiful nature areas and pretty villages. So set off along paths and lanes!

The Klompenmuseum ’t Skopke in Enter is totally “Twents” with its hundreds of different clogs. More interested in technology? The Twents Techniekmuseum HEIM shows the history and the future of (Twentse) industry. The Historisch Museum is fascinating. It’s situated in an aristocrat’s home that’s over a hundred years old.

The Rabotheater has extremely diverse performances on its programme, both from local amateurs and from national companies. It’s also ideal for a great film evening.

What’s going to happen on the stage at Metropool is always a surprise. It’s the place to discover rising talent and local music heroes.

Shopping lovers are well-served in the centre of Hengelo. With the special shopping walk route you’ll miss nothing.

There’s nostalgia in the forest between Hengelo and Enschede, where the family amusement park De Waarbeek is situated. You’ll find many rides from the past here that are still fascinating. Nothing is nicer for the children than playing endlessly in two large monkey cages. Set those monkeys free in the Bengeltjes Speeldorp.

Cycling and walking
Smart cyclists will take in a few castles along their route; Twickel castle on Landgoed Twickel for instance, most of which is open to the public. Tuindorp ’t Lansink, an idyllic residential area from the 1920s, is also nice.

“one night”

It was a very short stay, only one night. Arrived Hengelo by train at 23:30 and found the Hampshire Hotel easily, only four minutes walk from the station. The room was spacious and clean and very comfortable. Had a good breakfast in the morning, and left early for my train connection to Germany. The staff was very pleasant and helpful.

“Great value at an excellent location”

This was our second stay at the Hampshire Hotel - City Hengelo. We only spent one night this time, but the hotel was absolutely perfect for all our needs. The location of the hotel is perfect, since it is within a few minutes walking distance to the Hengelo train station, from where there are connections to several parts of Netherlands and Germany. There is even a car parking right across the road from the hotel and it is possible to pay for a 24hr parking at the hotel reception. This costs about €9. If you need to get to Enschede, the road is quite straight and the University of Twente (UT) is only about 10 mins by car also on a straight road. Of course, buses and trains take you to UT or Enschede from the nearby train station as well. If you find yourself in Hengelo on a Saturday with nothing to do, make sure to go to nearby Enschede for the wonderful market they have there on the weekend. The rooms are spacious and well equipped, the bed and pillows are comfortable and the bathrooms large with all amenities needed by most travellers. There is a breakfast offered by the hotel, but we did not use that facility on this trip. There is even a restaurant at the hotel, should you feel like eating here. But keep in mind that the restaurant is closed on the weekends, but the reception will gladly make a reservation for you in a nearby restaurant instead. All in all, this is a perfect place for a quick getaway to the Twente region. We will surely be back.
