Café Helleketel

De Helleketel stands out proudly on the wooded slopes of Helleketelbos. Winter hikers and cyclists find it the perfect place to stop and warm up over a tasty Picon made in-house. The popular ‘boerestuten’ (farmhouse platters) or a generous ‘Breughel’ platter cater for the needs of the stomach.

Summer tourists have been enjoying views of the hop fields from the delightful outdoor seating since 1895, when this traditional pub first opened its doors. In 2024, it’s still a popular place for relaxing and soaking up the good life. Settle down to a background of records from the iconic antique jukebox, while Lena pours out another Helleketel beer or Zatte Bie and serves it up with a smile. And once you’ve got a pint in, it’s time to try out one of the traditional games.

Trips by covered wagon can be arranged on request.
