Favorite thing: This is a picture of the park Berg-en-Bos. It is a park with a forest and a lake. The most interesting part of it is the wild park of Apenheul, an incredible area where different species of apes, monkeys and other kinds of animal roam free among the visitors. A great experience (I have gone there many times and I enjoy it more and more).
One park the monkeys are free and they invite you into their world!

Fondest memory: Seeing these animals sitting on other visitors head :)
go to the Caterplein when the weather is good. There are a lot of nice bars and cafe's where you can sit all day long and stare at the people who walk by.
Fondest memory: The hoofdstraat in the centre of Apeldoorn is a real must-see for its many shops and nice places to go.
Favorite thing: In front of the train station there is this art monument. Due to the fact that there is a new train/busstation area, this monument was made. It is called 'De kus' (the kiss).
Favorite thing: At every train station in the Netherlands you will find a parking spot for bikes. On working days these parking spots are sooo crowded with bikes!!
Favorite thing: Here and there you will see benches. You can sit here and rest. Or enjoy the sun. Most likely you will see older people sitting on these benches, enjoying the streetscenery/talking to each other/sun.
Everywhere in the city centre you will find these (local) sign posts.
They indicate the most important buildings, tourist sights and parking garages and help you to get around in Apeldoorn.
