Why Visit the Hoge Veluwe National Park

Located only 90 kilometers from Amsterdam, the Hoge Veluwe National Park is one of the largest national parks in the Netherlands. It provides an enjoyable place of recreation for visitors, while conserving the natural environment. The Hoge Veluwe Foundation aims to create unity between nature and culture by providing a space for visual arts and architecture and housing three museums.. Guests can wander the Hoge Veluwe and observe the magnificent wildlife in diverse landscapes.

Hoge Veluwe Museums

The three museums found in the Hoge Veluwe National Park are each unique and offer visitors a different cultural experience. The Museonder is an underground museum that gives an inside look at what has historically and still does take place beneath the Earth’s surface. The admission to this museum is included in the entrance fee for the Hoge Veluwe. The Kröller-Müller Museum houses a large collection of paintings by Vincent van Gogh and is also home to works by well-renowned artists such as George Seurat, Pablo Picasso, Fernand Leger, and Piet Mondrian. It is famous for its Sculpture Garden, which is one of the largest in Europe. The Kröller-Müller Museum is closed Mondays with the exception of public holidays. There are additional entrance fees for the museum and the Jachthuis Sint Hubertus. While exploring the Hoge Veluwe, visitors can also admire the beauty of Jachthuis Sint Hubertus’ unique architecture.

Outdoor Activities at the Hoge Veluwe

If looking for a day away from the hustle and bustle of the city, the Hoge Veluwe is the perfect place to spend some time soaking in the scenic landscape and enjoying the abundant wildlife found in the park. It is the perfect place for a walk or bike ride through nature. Guests don’t even have to bring their own bike, as the Hoge Veluwe offers free White Bikes for use to explore and enjoy the park. Independent walks, theme-based routes, long distance walks, and guided walks are available. No two routes are the same and the wide range of wildlife found in the Hoge Veluwe ensures every walk will be a unique experience.
