the group, recalls the fifth restaurant which was picked by the founder for one symbolic guilder and which included a small zoo. The Van Der Valk group’s first establishment in Belgium was built in 1958 with the opening in Brasschaat of the first 20-room motel on the
occasion of the World Exhibition.
