Hotel Restaurant Bitter en Zoet (Bitter and Sweet) is located in the middle of the beautiful Drenthe countryside. This hotel is housed in the stunningly renovated former hospital complex of Veenhuizen. The complex was originally built to provide care and rehabilitation for orphans, the poor, and vagrants from the big cities. It was later turned into a penal colony. You can learn all about the turbulent history of this complex at the nearby _Gevangenismuseum_ (Prison Museum).
