National Park De Hoge Veluwe is one of the Netherlands' oldest and largest national parks. It consists of no less than 5,500 hectares of woodland, heathland, lakes and driftsand. Together with the Kroller-Muller Museum and the sculpture garden it offers a unique combination of nature, art and architecture.
The Hoge Veluwe is made up of
around 50% woodland and 50% open land. It is home to a rich and varied
world of plants and animals. The wildlife is amazing: red deer, moufflon,
roe deer and wild boar can suddenly jump out in front of you. At a
number of hides they can often be seen clearly, particularly early in
the morning or at sunset.
The Hoge Veluwe is a park where visitors can still find plenty of space and peace. Where you can walk undisturbed for hours, or cycle using one of the free white bicycle. It is home to many endangered plant and animal species. Have you ever come face to face with a red deer, moufflon or roe deer? It can happen at De Hoge Veluwe!
Alongside peace and space, there is also a lot to do in the Park. To protect the peacefulness, the activities are concentrated in the central area
of the park.
It is possible to combine
this tour with a visit to the Kröller-Müller Museum. The Kröller-Müller
Museum is world-famous for its large collection of paintings by Vincent
van Gogh: it features a magnificent selection of his work. The museum

Leger, Piet Mondriaan and many other leading artists.
