Hoge Veluwe National Park in Netherlands

Updated: April 2, 2020 | By | More

Nationaal Park De Hoge Veluwe, or The Hoge Veluwe National Park in English, is situated in the province of Gelderland near the cities of Ede, Arnhem and Apeldoorn. It is approximately 55km2 in area, consisting of woodland, heathland, peat bogs and drift sand and it is the largest actively managed conservation area in private hands in the Netherlands. The Veluwe area contains the largest terminal moraine in the Netherlands.

Most of the landscape of the park and the Veluwe was created during the last Ice Age. The alternating sand dune areas and heathlands may have been caused by human utilization of the surrounding lands. The park forms one of the largest continuous nature reserves in the Netherlands.

The Hoge Veluwe National Park enjoys a wide variety of plants and animals and provides habitats to extremely rare Red List species. Together with the Kröller-Müller Museum, the Sculpture Garden and Country-residence/Museum Jachthuis Sint Hubertus, the Park forms a unique and (inter)nationally renowned combination of nature, art and architecture.
