Welcome to Hoge Veluwe National Park

Hoge Veluwe National Park

For exercise fiends unsatisfied with simply walking around Amsterdam's historic city centre, a trip out to the Hoge Veluwe National Park is a fantastic way to enjoy the Netherlands' (somewhat limited) great outdoors. The Hoge Veluwe National Park covers an area of 55 square kilometres (5,400 hectares) and has an interesting topography, featuring woodland, heathland, peat bogs and even sand dunes. The park is home to a high concentration of fauna, including red deer, roe deer, wild boar and mouflon (a kind of wild sheep), and provides ample walking and cycling opportunities to visitors - there's even a fleet of 1,700 white bicycles which are free to rent. Also housed within the park is the St. Hubertus Hunting Lodge, a beautiful building designed by Hendrik Petrus Berlage; and the Kroller-Muller Museum, which contains artwork by such luminaries as Van Gogh, Picasso and Mondrian. An ideal way to get some exercise and take in a bit of culture in one fun excursion, a trip to the Hoge Veluwe National Park is highly recommended for visitors to Amsterdam.
