Welcome to De Zalm, 
Hotel, Restaurant & Café since 1870

De Zalm is a charming hotel which has been run for five generations by the same family. It is situated on Herentals' main marketplace, the Grote Markt, just opposite the Medieval Clothmaker's Hall.

Behind the classic face is the bustle of a well-kept, authentic "brown café" offering a wide range of Belgian beers.


De Zalm has 24 contemporary guest rooms, equipped with a shower, bath, telephone and excellent WiFi.



Behind the classic facade, right opposite the Medieval Lakenhal, it is bustling with life in a stylish, authentic brown café.

With us you can gastronomically enjoy honest Flemish and French cuisine and a carefully selected wine list. During the summer months you can dine in our green courtyard.

A story you must have tasted

The history of De Zalm goes back to 1515. Brewery and inn “De Salm” was located a few meters from the current hotel, on the corner of the “Grote Markt” and the “Zandstraat”…
