    See the text below taken from their website. This is really easy going, just take a white bike to a location in the park, visit that location and cycle away on an other bike, because of the fact that your bike is already in use by another person! The white bicylcle is clearly one of the most well-known features of the Park. As a visitor you are...

  • The only one in the whole Park!

    This is the only possibility to visit a restaurant in the park. So I won't adives you to go here, because of the fact it isn't cheap, it isn't of high standard it's just the only possibility to eat something. My advice: Take your own food and drinks and have a picknick and remember to take your garbage with you and dump it at the wright place!

    Simple food, variating from lunches to complete dishes. Icecream, tea and coffe as well as beer and beverages can be enjoyed on a terrace or inside. Great stop to sit back and relax. "Koperen kop" means "Cuprum mug" (as in drinking cup) or "head" This is actually the only restaurant within the fences of the national park Hoge Veluwe.

Nationaal Park De Hoge Veluwe Nightlife

    by Pavlik_NL Written May 13, 2004

    The national park Hoge Veluwe organises often very early in the morning "ochtend wandelingen" (daybreak walks). You have to be present at 5:00 or 6:00 and a tourguide will show you the spots where the animals appear. Deer, wild bore, fazants, rabbits and hares will be seen. Occasionally and with a lot of luck also foxes and badgers. Ask for the program that is available in the visitor centre.

    Dress Code: Jungle-outfit would be nice - haha. Good walkingshoes are recommended.

    Deer is one of the rough wild living in the park

  • Overview map of the national park

    Want to know where you are and where to go to? Well, on several places there are maps that can help you out. On it are walking routes as well as biking paths. The car roads are also visible, but who needs them ... you have been clever enough to leave the car outside the park where it belongs or entered by bus on a tour.

Nationaal Park De Hoge Veluwe Local Customs

  • White bicycles

    I think the idea of free white bicycles stems from an idea that started in Amsterdam in the 1960s - the bikes are available in a variety of sizes at the Visitor Centre and they are to be used to cycle through the national park - you can choose routes yourself or there are recommended routes. If you are unused to a bicycle as I was choose just to go...

    In the Visitors' Centre you can find information on the park.

    Unique Suggestions: When you come to visit the park, you have the option of paying an entry fee for your car or parking your car at the entrance and cycling.

    Also you can use your own bicycles or you can take one of the bikes that are provided free by the park.

    You do not have to sign for the bikes, you just find one that fits and take it wherever you want in the park.

    Fun Alternatives: But if you are already doing a tour by bike!!

    Take care of yours... they disapeard quick

  • The three unity in the middle of nature

    Along the road from Schaarsbergen to the Kroller-Muller museum one will pass a strange sculpture along the road. It is a three unity and looks quite mysterious on the hill where one finds behind the remainders of the museum as it was planned to be built at first.
