Moeke Mooren can be found in the Land of Maas and Waal region, directly by the Meuse river. The Gelderse Rivierenland has long been a forgotten part of the Netherlands. Not too long ago, nobody knew how beautiful the dikes meander through the beautiful landscape, how impressively the blue skies are silhouetted above the tranquil villages. Villages, in which workers earned their living for decades at the brickworks and life quietly chewed away. Thanks in part to Boudewijn de Groot and his biggest hit, the rest of the Netherlands discovered what had been hidden for years: the Land of Maas and Waal.

To explore this beautiful area, various hiking, cycling and sailing routes are offered. Ask for it at the reception of Moeke Mooren. We are also a short distance from the cozy Tiel municipality. If you are in the neighborhood of so much water, it is natural that you also want to look around by boat for a while. Hotel Moeke Mooren offers you this opportunity. Go aboard the luxury passenger ship the Sluizer and hear from the captain about the area where you sail. The cruise offers various beautiful trips on the Maas and the Waal rivers.


We are aware of the influence of our business activities on the environment and society and want to act in such a way that the natural environment will also remain available for future generations. We do this by continually integrating sustainability into our business processes, services and products.

To achieve this, we make conscious choices and find a balance between people, planet and results. This is a continual process, hence we are constantly looking for feasible steps to shape this social responsibility in our company. To achieve this, we implement the following measures:

■ We actively keep abreast of CSR developments within our profession and make an active contribution to transfer of our knowledge to employees and others who want to learn the trade.

■ We inform our guests, employees and suppliers about how we conduct corporate social responsibility.

■ We make transparent agreements with the parties involved about the quality of our product and how we monitor it.

■ In addition to the financial impact, we also determine the social and environmental impact of our product and limit any negative impact as much as possible.

■ We voluntarily contribute to social goals through donations and sponsoring and / or volunteer work.

■ We try to inform and facilitate our guests and customers how it’s possible for them to reduce their environmental impact.

■ We continuously work on reducing the environmental impact and increasing the sustainability of our company. By actively seeking to reduce waste flows and our consumption of gas, water, electricity and fossil fuels.
