Autumn 2022: even warmer, more colorful and cozier!

21 September 2022

It is officially autumn ! Time for colorful forests, autumn holidays, dried flowers for decoration, dark days and falling leaves. It is a season where one is disappointed and the other is steeled with happiness that it has finally come. October and the months that follow are therefore dominated by walks in the rain and games by the fireplace. Don't fall asleep.. 😴 Make this fall the coziest yet with our tips!

  • Have a tidy 'autumn ready' house

An extra mat by the door for wet boots, scented candles (and preferably new ones every weekend) and a bunch of dried flowers to replace the yellow sunflowers. If you're not looking forward to fall, at least make sure you pick up some fun fall items while shopping. A day of re-decorating at home quickly makes it easier to accept that the rainy days are coming. Prepare yourself well!


  • Go outside and find nature

Nature is undoubtedly at its best in autumn. Whether you go hiking, cycling or sailing. The forests and parks are filled with falling leaves, red mushrooms and chestnuts. It's in the little things.. Dress well, fill your thermos with coffee or tea and discover the most beautiful places in the Netherlands in autumn.


  • City hopping during the autumn holidays

"Shall we meet again?" "Fancy, where shall we go?". Visit the shopping streets of Utrecht or the canals of Amsterdam and take your best friend or mother with you because it has been so long. The autumn break is also a perfect opportunity to change the rhythm for a few days! Something different than walks in the autumnal nature. Sit down in a coffee bar or lunchroom and enjoy the rain tapping against the window in good company.

  • Put together your most creative decoration

With things from the forest! You put the most beautiful decorations together yourself. A nice autumn wreath, colorful deco for the coffee table or creative wall decoration is easy to make yourself. A few autumn leaves, acorns, chestnuts, pine cones and maybe a lick of paint will get you far. And let's be honest, anyone can do it!


  • Collect all board games! Who wins?

The fanatics among us are always in the mood for a game of 30 seconds, The Colonists of Catan, Mens Erger Je Niet or Cluedo. Besides a fireplace in rainy weather, it's a lot more fun to go through all the board games in one evening. Plan a cozy game night with family or friends and experience for yourself how warm autumn can feel.


  • Enjoy.. it's allowed now!

Game meats, cinnamon-flavoured apple pies, pumpkins and stews; autumn has plenty to offer. Go experimenting in the kitchen! And if good food doesn't make you feel warm, try a glass of mulled wine or chai latte to warm up with. From mid-October you can also enjoy delicious autumn specials in our restaurants. Will we see you then?


  • A successful day ends in a good bed

At the end of a pleasant day, all you need is a good night's sleep. And you can rely on that at Bastion Hotels!

By the way, have you noticed that you sleep better since the fall has started? In the cold months, your body has a lower body temperature, which means you sleep more deeply. With a room temperature between 20 and 22 degrees, you sleep at your best. Of course you wake up in a good mood and you don't have to do anything for it!



Even on a cold autumn day, we are ready for you with a wonderfully warm bed. View all 33 Bastion Hotels and book cheaply.
