The Park and its White Bicycles
The park covers 5,500 hectares of woodland, heath, grasslands and shifting sands, and is the natural habitat for deer, moeflon and wild boar. On foot or on one of the free White Bicycles, you are free to roam around in nature, to naturally arrive at the museum, the finest treasure-house the Netherlands has to its name. The free White Bicycles (1,800 in total) are stationed at the three entrances to the park, at the visitors’ centre and at the museum.
In the visitors’ centre you can learn more about the nature, landscape, animals, culture and history of The Hoge Veluwe. Nature films are shown in the auditorium, and in the Museonder you get a surprising look at everything that lives and has lived under the earth surface! Admission to this, the world’s first underground museum is included in the admission ticket for the park. The park shop offers a wide range of items and you can purchase thematic walks and bicycle tours from the reception desk.
Jachthuis Sint Hubertus
Jachthuis Sint Hubertus is the former country house of Mr and Mrs Kröller-Müller. This ‘total artwork’ by architect H.P. Berlage is one of the Netherlands’ most important monuments. The Jachthuis is only accessible with a guided tour (€ 4 p.p., € 2 p.p. for children from 6 to 12 years-old). Tickets can be booked online, but are also available at the entrances to the park, the visitors’ centre and the tea house at the Jachthuis.
Activities and events
A variety of activities take place in the park all year round, such as safaris and walks led by the forester, lectures, Horse Day and regional markets with specialities of the Veluwe. There is also plenty to do for children: puppet shows, theatre, exciting workshops during special nature and science weeks, and much more.
