Speulderbos is a forest located in the northwest of the Veluwe, east of Putten in the municipalities of Putten (Sprielderbos) and Ermelo (Speulderbos). The size of the area is approximately 3,300 hectares. About 300 hectares of the Speulder Forest, especially near the hamlet Drie, consist of trees that seem to be dancing because of their strange shapes. Thus, Speulderbos is commonly referred to as the "forest of the dancing trees."
The forests in this area can be classified as the winter oak beech forests and oak birch forests. The old tree forests contain a lot of dead wood, which causes a thick growth of mushrooms and mosses. A large part of the forest is dark and dominated by the beech, hence there is little biodiversity here. Visit this forest for an awe-inspiring experience.
