Who are we

Our story

Eating & drinking, sleeping, parties, meetings... you've come to the right place at De Beerze! We ensure that our guests feel at home with us. Let's stick to Brabant conviviality and village geniality! We are located in a former town hall - the first female mayor of the Netherlands held sway there! – and you notice that. We combine authentic elements with modern applications, which gives De Beerze a contemporary character.

Whether you just come for a drink at the bar or whether you opt for a hotel stay with all the trimmings; we ensure that you can enjoy De Beerze at its best. You are very welcome to come and experience it for yourself!

Team De Beerze


  • 1879


    A beautiful mansion is being built at Doornboomstraat 22. Initially it served as a home, then the building served as a shop. There is, among other things, a butcher's shop and grocery store. Later it will be used as a town hall.

  • 1945


    During the Second World War, people in hiding found shelter in the building. As a reminder, the town hall will receive a memorial plaque after the war. This is still present on the facade.

  • 1956


    The first female mayor of the Netherlands, Truus Smulders-Beliën, moves into the town hall. She is loved in the village and is given the honorary title 'our madam' by the residents.

  • 1973


    Eetcafé De Zwaan will start at Hoogdijk 32 in Middelbeers. It will become a household name in Middelbeers and the surrounding area for decades. De Zwaan is especially popular with cyclists and walkers. Associations also like to make use of De Zwaan's hospitality.

  • 2020


    The former town hall has been restored to its former glory and will be used as a catering facility. After a thorough renovation, Grand Café and Boutique Hotel De Beerze will open in 2020! Café De Zwaan ceases to exist.

Sustainable enjoyment

Although our building is more than 140 years old, it is completely future-proof. It even meets the strict energy standards imposed on new-build homes. And that is quite special for a building with this history. We do not use gas and all rooms are optimally insulated, both in terms of sound and climate control. This is how you can enjoy yourself at De Beerze sustainable enjoyment!
