De Hoge Veluwe National Park

The green heart of the Netherlands

The scenic beauty of De Hoge Veluwe National Park is overwhelming. The distinctive, ancient landscapes of the Veluwe provide constant variety throughout the 5,400 hectares of the park. You will encounter deciduous, coniferous and mixed forests during your journey through the park, but also heathlands, grassy plains and stunning dune landscapes.

The diverse landscapes are home to an unprecedented diversity of plants and animals, ranging from rare forest mother-of-pearl butterflies to imposing red deer, from Alcon Blues to little black salsify. The Park also has uniquely rich birdlife: some 100 species of summer birds can be found there. But don’t miss the ‘big four’ either as you make your way through the Park: red deer, wild boar, mouflon and roe deer. And watch out for other mammals such as the fox, badger and pine marten, too.

The Kröller-Müller Museum, in its magnificent setting in De Hoge Veluwe National Park, houses the second-largest Van Gogh collection in the world. The Kröller-Müller Museum is Vincent van Gogh’s second home. The museum represents Helene Kröller-Müller’s life’s work. She and her husband Anton Kröller bought almost 11,500 art works, but Van Gogh was her personal favourite. His work forms the heart of the collection.

The Kröller-Müller Museum has one of the largest sculpture gardens in Europe. Over 160 sculptures by influential artists such as Auguste Rodin, Henry Moore, Jean Dubuffet and Joep van Lieshout are positioned around the 25-hectare garden in a natural setting. The sculpture garden is open all year round and each season adds its own atmosphere. Enjoy the sculptures, the architecture and the natural beauty!
