Beekbergen Things to Do

  • The station

    The station of Beekbergen first used to be an insignificant stopping place on the line between Apeldoorn and Dieren, though already in the beginning it was here that the "remises" (garages for overnight stay, as well as technical support) of the trains were built. Beekbergen always has been a small village in the shade of much larger Apeldoorn. The...

    The last 2 years there were gardens open for public. This year it was the same. In the weekend of 12 June 2010 there were 4 gardens (from private owners) open to the publice. The gardens are really beautifull. There is also art in the gardens. Also there was a bit of music (jazzband and accordion player).I really liked one in particular. It was a...

  • steam loc need their own equipment

    Look around at the Beekbergen station and find out the differences with modern stations. One will immediately jump in the eyes: the huge craneshaped taps that provide the steam loc's cettle with fresh water. Ilja is crazy about them when on TV, but here he was little afraid and definately didn;t want to stand right underneath (supposing that an...

  • and not even only engines ...

    The VSM also takes care of classic wagons, like some Pulitzer and Wagon-Lits cars. They keep things in shape and running, so in the season you and I can enjoy the splendour of the old days by taking a touristic drive around on the now-a-days touristic VSM-railroad.

  • Not only steam engines

    On the rails surrounding the station of Beekbergen are not only steam locomotives, but also other loc's that descend less far back in history, but still are quite interesting to watch. The collection shows actually a whole image of trains, from the first steam driven to modern electrified engines (though they run on diesel here as the line has...

  • The "Beekbergen" depot

    At the station terrain there are still the garages (remises) for the steamlocomotives and one should for sure take a look inside. Here a collection of some amazing beauties of the steam age are standing. Large black "steel" horses with shining or oily engines.

    by a5floor Updated Feb 10, 2013

    The restaurant Het Jachthuis is situated at a bungalow park. You can get various food: wild, a la carte dishes, snacks or a pizza.

    I had a coupon for a 3 course meal for 2 persons. As a starter there are 4 different soups, main course you can choose from wild, meat, fish & vegetarian and dessert was a surprise of the chef. I took tomato soup, the meat dish for main course and the dessert was ice cream with wipped cream. Allthough the meat was really good, it was too salted for me. But for other people it would have been allright.

    The coupon was € 29 for 2 persons. But normally it is € 30 for 1 person. Beverages are € 2.25.

    VSM is an organisation that is completely ran and financed by volunteers and sponsors. It is amazing that the hobby of these men and women guarantees the pleasure of tourists that travel by these magnificent trains and against such low tarifs (see VSM website).

Beekbergen Off The Beaten Path

    A real family activity

    by Pavlik_NL Written May 27, 2004

    The VSM in Beekbergen is actually mostly a Dutch holiday activity. Many of the families that are camping in the Veluwe-forests, also take a trip to Beekbergen and a ride on the steam train between Apeldoorn and Dieren. Foreigners often are Germans, of which we always also get quite a few on the Veluwe campgrounds. Others ... well, they are all very welcome and I hope to get positive reaction if you do. For families with children, this definately is a recommendation from me to do.
