Since 1945, Hotel de Wereld has been known as the place where the capitulation of Germany became a fact. Hotel de Wereld was favored by Canadian General Foulkes as a negotiating spot because of its location at the time, the absence of civilians due to evacuation and the metaphorical nature of the name of ‘De Wereld’ (“The World”).

On May 5, 1945, Foulkes met the German Colonel General Blaskowitz in the current “Grote Capitulatiezaal” to negotiate the surrender, including Prince Bernhard as Commander of the Interior Forces. The Germans were willing to surrender and with that the Hotel de Wereld Wageningen became a monument of peace and freedom in 1945.

You can also visit De Casteelse Poort, museum of the city of Wageningen, including the exhibition “The Peace of Wageningen 1945” and “The history of Wageningen”.
