Book your stay

Water, water, water!

The Maasplassen form the largest continuous water sports area in the Netherlands. It is especially lovely here in the summer. Rent a sloop or paddle bike from the MRT Harbor and explore the surroundings. Try your hand (and foot) on the SUP board or E-Foil. You can even attempt to master the SUP Bike! Naturally, you can also just go swimming in De Grote Hegge. Simply take a beach towel with you to the MRT Beach and enjoy a day filled with water and sun.

Wish to come on by with your own boat? That’s possible too! If you’re a park guest, you can dock your boat at the marina and spend the night in one of our luxury villas, apartments, or hotel rooms.


Inside Pool

You can’t say summer without saying swimming, and at Parc Maasresidence Thorn there are ample swimming opportunities. The MRT Pool consists of no less than three pools: the kiddie pool, the main pool, and the whirlpool!

No swimming pool can truly call itself a pool without a long slide. Whiz on downwards and catch your breath on the comfortable sunbeds after.


Your very Own Beach

A beach? So far from the sea?! Of course! The unique private beach of Parc Maasresidence Thorn beckons all park guests to come on by for an afternoon of swimming, sunning, playing sports, and beach games!

At the MRT Beach, you can also try out the SUP Boards, the E-Foils, and the SUP Bikes. Let the riveting fun begin!


The Summer Holidays in Limburg with Children

The summer also has a lot to offer to our younger guests. Our loveable park mascot, Happy Benny, and his animation team will be present during the holidays, with all kinds of fun games, workshops, treasure hunts, and more!

At the MRT Promenade, you will find the Kids Club. Here, children can also be entertained by a whole array of activities, including a mini disco!


The Villa that Suits you Best

Everybody celebrates their summer in their own way. That’s why Parc Maasresidence Thorn has villas that cater to all kinds of holiday needs. Are you someone who just can’t get enough of the water? Then book a Premium Water villa adjacent to De Grote Hegge with a private sauna. Are you an outdoorsy epicurean? Then book our Premium Outdoor villa with an extra-large garden and a ceramic BBQ. Do you want your kids to enjoy the summer just as much as you do? Then book a Kids Special villa with children’s rooms and direct access to a fenced-in playground.


A Stay with a Stunning View

As dusk slowly falls, the blue bridge, the villas, and the old green trees cast long shadows across De Grote Hegge in the setting sun. At that point, nothing beats a cold white wine and a balcony overlooking nature’s spectacle.

The apartments and hotel rooms of Parc Maasresidence Thorn offer an amazing stay directly adjacent to the Maasplassen. Immerse yourself in the stylish comfort of these brand-new accommodations.


Humphrey’s Thorn: Prepared for Anything!

Humphrey’s Thorn has a little bit of everything for everyone during the summer holidays. Do you need to cool down? Enjoy a cold beer on the terrace with a stunning view across the Maasplassen. Just came back from a long bike trek? Treat yourself to a tasty ice cream from Humphrey's Thorn. Wish to enjoy an easy, tasty dinner on your own terrace? Then order some delicious sushi!

Humphrey’s Thorn also has an extensive breakfast buffet with fresh bread rolls, delightful toppings, a selection of juices, muesli, and more.


Cycling and Walking in Limburg

The Maasplassen lakes provide the perfect location for a relaxing holiday. But if you would like to explore some more, we have a wide range of rental options at our reception - you can rent bikes, mountain bikes, or even e-choppers! There is also the option to take your own bike along with you on your journey.

Wish to take a trip with your children during the summer holidays in Limburg? Rent a few bikes (with children’s seat) and head over to Fun Beach Panheel!

Whichever way you choose to travel, the Maasplassen are a wonderful place to discover by foot or on two wheels.


A Day Filled with Shopping

Are you in desperate need of some retail therapy coming summer? Find your ideal summer dress or new MRT Beach outfit at one of the numerous great shopping cities surrounding the park. Check out the unique local shops of Maastricht, the Designer Outlet in Roermond, the Weerterland Premium Outlet in Weert, or you can even try the beating retail heart of Düsseldorf.


More than Enough to Experience

For every hobbyist, culture enthusiast, musical fanatic, and gastronomical adventurist, something unique can be found in the area. For example, you can lend an ear to André Rieu on the Vrijthof between the 4th and 21st of July or attend the Solar Weekend in Roermond between the 1st and 4th of August. Naturally, the fields near Heerlen will go absolutely wild from the the 21st till the 23rd of June with the 2024 edition of Pinkpop!

Coming summer, there will also be several markets and festivals. Visit the International History Festival in Panningen or the yearly summer market.
