Hoge Veluwe National Park Reviews & Ratings
A wonderful piece of Dutch nature. Great visitors centre, very educational museum and wonderful art gallery (with a breath-taking extended garden that you can walk through and see at pieces). There are bikes that are free to use in the park and makes it great for a day's visit. The only problem I have with this is that it's a "national" Park, but still costs to get into it...
Such a beautiful and peaceful place. We used the provided bikes and cycled through a small part of the park. We arrived pretty late in the day, so we were alone for most of our visit. We did see a lot of deer and the weather was perfect.
This park has a bit of everything. You tour the park on a bike (available for free at all the entrances, or you can bring your own), through forests, fields, swamps, even sand dunes. The art museum in the center of the park has a good collection of Van Gogh, Mondrian, quite a few impressionists... but it's not too big. The downside - on a nice weekend day, the park can be quite crowded.
I never thought that there are such dry places in the Netherlands. For me it doesn't worth! It is good for cycling though. But to see animals, you can find animals everywhere in NL. Never believe that you will see animals like the photos of this park!
Nice place to do a picnic with family and friends. Lots of cycling and walking tracks. Perfect place when the weather is good
