Visiting Het Loo and the Kroller-Muller Museum

by WallarooJill

We have booked a river trip from Amsterdam to Buderpest next year. We would like to arrive 2 or 3 days prior to departure from Amsterdam and visit the Kroller-Muller Museum and Het Loo. Once in Apeldoorn both destinations seem achievable by bike. My question how to we get from Amsterdam to Apeldoorn? I'm not keen on the idear of hiring a car. Is there a bus or train connection and if so where would they depart from?

There are 1 to 2 direct trains each hour from Amsterdam Centraal to Apeldoorn.

Walking from the Apeldoorn Station to the Loo castle takes 45 minutes.; see the trip I made with member Imaniac at:

At the Apeldoorn station you can rent bicycles, but you could take a bus to the Kroller-Muller Museum and get a bicycle there at no cost to use for the day in the park. The bus station is next to the Apeldoorn train station.

To be able to make the choice that PJ gives you, you may want to know the following:

There was a recent discussion about the free bicycles at Park Hoge Veluwe (where the KMM is situated) at

Bicycle rent at the Apeldoorn train station:
- you need to ID yourself (it may be handy to have a few photocopies of your passport so that you can leave one behind, instead of your passport if they ask it)
- There's a € 25 per bike deposit which you get back when returning the bicycle(s)
- reservations in advance not possible
- opening hours Mon-Sat: 9-22 hrs, Sun 10-22 hrs
- for all other information, write to or Tel +3155-5225184

Travel Tips for Apeldoorn

The royal palace "Het Loo" is a must in NL

by Pavlik_NL

Visit the royal palace Het Loo. Here former kings and queens lived in there modest 'Versailles of The Netherlands'. Especially the gardens are beautiful with their synchrone pathstructure, the wonderful fountains and plants and flowers. By the way, 'Het Loo' actually means 'The Water', something that had to be transported from a place few kilometres away. Strawl across the gardens and enjoy the sun on the patio, while listening to sound of falling water in the fountain-ponds.

Apeldoorns Kanaal - Channel

by a5floor

There is a channel called ´Apeldoorns Kanaal`. It is a long channel. You fill find it all the way in Dieren (another city). If you want you can cycle or drive in a car all along this channel. You can make a lot of nice pictures during this ride.

Partnership with Burlington, Ontario, Canada

by a5floor

There are a couple of cities in the Netherlands that have a partnership with other cities abroad. Apeldoorn has a partnership with the city Burlington, Ontario, Canada.

Initialy it was started between the Canadian veteran soldiers (from WW2) and the people from the city of Apeldoorn for the yearly liberation day on 5 May. On this day the veterans were walking a route to celebrate the freedom for the Dutch people in 1945. The Dutch people are cheering them to thanks them.
Nowadays it is more an official partnership between these 2 cities. There are exchanges between the 2 cities.

When you are entering the city Apeldoorn by car, you will see these signs saying 'In vriendschap verbonden met' (in friendship connected with).

Football Fever

by johngayton

I was quite fortunate to be visiting the Netherlands during the 2010 Football World Cup finals and there seemed to be a permanent party atmosphere everywhere I went, even on days when the Dutch weren't actually playing.

It wasn't just Apeldoorn, it was the country in general enjoying the event and whilst partisan it was also a celebration of the game. There were no nationalist flags just the simple orange of the team's strip and of course the black and white footballs to adorn the town's streets, centre and suburb alike.

Always good to see.


by vtveen

The biggest party in Apeldoorn, when we are celebrating our Queen’s birthday. Always on April 30, except when this is on a Sunday, then the celebrations we will be the Saturday before.

Queensday means:
- a lot of Red, White and Blue and Orange street decorations;
- a fair on the market square;
- brass bands playing;
- street musicians;
- shops with special ‘orange’ offers;
- jumble sale in the streets;
- fireworks in the evening.

But most of all thousands and thousands of people in the town centre celebrating our Queen’s birthday, walking, sitting on side walk cafe’s, drinking an ‘orange bitter’ and having fun.

Be aware not all tourist attractions and shops will be open at normal times.
Public transport schedules may be different from normal.
