A little history
Martinus Van der Valk created a first coffee-restaurant in Vorschooten, The Netherlands, in the 1930s which was to become the beginning of the Van der Valk group. His children participated to the growth of the group and strongly developed it in the 80s and 90s with the takeover of HORECA establishments and new constructions.
Van der Valk Hotel Luxembourg-Arlon is the most recent of Van der Valk in Belgium. The hotel welcomes business customers, regional guests and also tourists.
