Who are we?
De Houtzagerij is a unique and fairly new restaurant, located at Resort De Wije Werelt in Otterlo. The building, built in 2014, is constructed entirely out of natural materials, for example, the wood was supplied by the neighboring Planken Wambuis.

De Houtzagerij consists of a family restaurant, as well as an indoor playground. We focus on guests that are on holiday, and guests from the area, and have nice party facilities for families, children, and companies. Next door, we have a great space for business meetings. We want to be trendsetters with De Houtzagerij and Resort De Wije Werelt, and we reflect this in our unique and natural rental accommodations.

Resort De Wije Werelt will soon be carrying out further development of the resort. This means that new recreational homes will be developed, and the resort itself will be upgraded. This includes De Houtzagerij. The restaurant will be further developed and professionalized, to improve our ability to handle busy times in the future.
