About us: Boutique hotel De Durgerdam

Welcome to De Durgerdam: an enchanting 17th century boutique hotel located in the charming fishing village of Durgerdam, a place rich in history and beauty. And that… just 15 minutes from Amsterdam. Read more quickly about our unique story.

The fishing village of Durgerdam

At boutique hotel De Durgerdam we take you on an enchanting journey full of history and charm. Located in the picturesque village of Durgerdam, we offer an oasis of peace on the banks of the Ijmeer lake. It feels like you have left the busy city far behind you, while in reality the village is just a stone's throw away from the vibrant life of Amsterdam.

The Durgerdam is the perfect place for guests who want to escape the hustle and bustle of the city and are looking for a wonderful retreat between meadows and the coast, where maritime and rural heritage intersect. Hidden behind tall grasses and right next to the characteristic gabled clapboard houses of the traditional fishing village of Durgerdam, we invite you to enjoy the serene beauty of this unique location.

Boutique hotel De Durgerdam

The boutique hotel De Durgerdam is located on the Ijmeer and houses a 14 room hotel and restaurant in a historical building. Each room and public space has been carefully designed to create a perfect balance between comfort, luxury, and authenticity. The talented Amsterdam basde designers from the renowned design studio, Buro Belen, have drawn their inspiration from the rich history of the village and the beautiful colors of the natural environment. Every detail has been thought about - the decorative shells, the traditional Zuiderzee hand-painted carpentry, the hand-glazed tiles and the sensual fabrics.

The Rooms

The hotel has 14 bedrooms and suites from which you can enjoy breathtaking views of the glittering water of the Ijmeer or the charming streets of Durgerdam.

Our rooms have been lovingly designed and decorated, combining both modern and classic elements to create a warm and elegant ambiance, from the colors and textures to the artwork and decorations. Every detail has been thought through and every element contributes to the unique atmosphere and experience of the hotel.

In this way we strive to offer our guests a unique experience. Each room is equipped with a comfortable reading chair, a king-size Hypnos bed and a luxurious rain shower.

Restaurant De Mark

In addition to our hotel, we have our own restaurant De Mark: a culinary destination where passion for food and hospitality come together. The kitchen and the team are central to our mission to offer you an extraordinary dining experience.

Our talented team of chefs, led by Chef Koen Marees, is committed to preparing refined dishes with fresh, seasonal and local ingredients. We are proud that we can collaborate with renowned Amsterdam gourmets Richard van Oostenbrugge and Thomas Groot, known from the star-winning restaurants 212 and De Juwelier, to devise our gastronomic journey.

At Restaurant De Mark we strive to pamper your taste buds and offer you an unforgettable culinary experience in a homely setting. In the kitchen we attach great importance to creativity and innovation, and our menus reflect a harmonious mix of classic and contemporary dishes. The tastiest dishes are created with just a few simple ingredients. Combine the dishes with one of the carefully selected selection of wines from the wine cellar and your evening is complete. Whether you have a passion for gastronomy or simply want to enjoy a delicious meal with matching wines, we would like to welcome you to enjoy the flavors and pleasures of the kitchen and the world of wine with us.

Moreover, our restaurant offers an unforgettable experience on our attractive terrace with a breathtaking view of the Ijmeer. In summer it is the ideal place to enjoy the sunny days and the beautiful surroundings, while relaxing with a good book or a cool drink after a day of adventures in the city. And during the colder winter months, the Ijmeer turns into an ideal place for skating and enjoying nature in Durgerdam.
