Did you know that an extensive forest area used to be called a Hartelt or Hartert? In 1381, a certain Jan van Hees left the entire forest area around Vaeshartelt to Servaes van Mulcken. Since then, the area has been called “Hartelt of (Ser)Vaes” or Vaeshartelt. The coat of arms of Vaeshartelt, a shield with red and white stripes with the falcon on top, dates from the same period as the name was created. The falcon is a symbol of power and strength. Vaeshartelt’s current logo is also a falcon, although it is a bit more abstract.
Vaeshartelt is more than just a building. We are surrounded by a beautiful park where there is plenty to do. In the park you can find a large English landscaped garden, a vineyard, the Star Forest, a lot of fruit trees and shrubs, a bee pavilion and much more. A relaxing walk is therefore always within reach.
Do you have a break during your meeting or event and do you feel like a change of scenery? We have walking routes of various distances through our park available at the reception. Perfect for a bit of moving around and returning relaxed. The three coffee corners on the meeting floor are also great places to relax and chat while enjoying a cup of Blanche Dael coffee or tea and a biscuit.
At Vaeshartelt, in addition to organized breakfasts, lunches or dinners, it is also possible to
