Hoge Veluwe National Park

( No user reviews )

High Veluwe (Dutch: Hoge Veluwe) is in Gelderland, Netherlands.


One of the largest national parks in the Netherlands, it is situated to the north of and most easily accessible from the city of Arnhem.



The land is flat but has subtle variations in small areas and sand dunes in the desert patches.

Flora and fauna

The park is mostly covered by pristine vegetation, most of which consists of various conifers, shrub and grassland with a large variation of flowers

Getting there

You can get into the park at several entrances from the direction of Arnhem (ingang Schaarsbergen) on the N311, from Otterlo or Hoenderlo on the N304 or N310 or from Delen.

Traveling around

Cars are allowed in the park on the few main roads, but most paths can only be used by bicycles and on foot anyway. Walking is an option if you only want to cover a small part of the park as it is not allowed to camp in the area. There is a nature camping next to the park.


Besides the exciting landscape, visitors are advised to visit the collections of paintings and sculptures of the famous Kröller-Müller Museum, and the St. Hubert Hunting Lodge (Jachthuis St. Hubertus) in the northern part of the park.
