The Netherlands in a Nutshell

As the green heart of the Netherlands, the Veluwe features typical Dutch landscapes ranging from wetland to woodland to inland sand dunes. It centres on the country’s most popular national park, Hoge Veluwe - a haven for wildlife including birds, deer and wild boar.

As well as offering cycling, horseriding and walking, the 5,400-hectare park houses the excellent Kröller-Müller Museum featuring the world’s 2nd largest Van Gogh collection, and an eclectic sculpture garden. Other Hoge Veluwe museums include the Jachthuis Sint Hubertus, a Kröller family residence designed by Berlage, the architect behind Amsterdam’s Beurs.

Some of the closest Veluwe B&Bs are in Arnhem, well-known for its role in World War II. This green city on the Rhine proudly remembers its past, but also looks to the future with its state-of-the-art GelreDome events venue. To the west is the university town of Wageningen with its beautiful botanical gardens, while neighbouring Ede is situated by a lush forest.

In the north of Veluwe is Harderwijk, a pretty lakefront town with a popular dolphinarium. Monkeys and apes can roam free in Apenheul zoo in Apeldoorn, a city that also boasts a children’s amusement park and the stately palace and landscaped gardens of Het Loo Palace, a former royal residence. It also offers some of the Veluwe hotels with swimming pools on Booking.com.
