Despite what you might think, you will not be able to see so many animals as expected because they tend to hide and keep distant from people, of course; but nevertheless, it's really worthy to come here and take a trip with one of the lovely white bikes freely available at each entrance. The ticket is approx. 8 euros pp.,... More

I was afforded a unique opportunity to visit what's called the Green Gem of the Netherlands (De Hoge VeLuwe) with my daughter. You should know there are three opportunities to enter the park but we only knew about one and walked the just under 7 miles from the entry to the art museum and gardens including the second largest collection...

For us, the highlight of Hoge Veluwe is the free bicycles. There are over 40km of bike paths within this stunning national park. No matter how many herds of tourist arrive, there are always plenty of bikes available for free use! We recommend taking a backpack full of picnic goodies ;) TIP: if you are staying in the area for... More

Pick up bicycles at the entrance to the park and cycle all day. Lovely big park - was empty but given the number of available bicycles I imagine it gets busy in summer. All bicycles have child seats - superb if you travel with young children. Slightly older children have smaller bicycles. Very nice day out.

A truly beautiful natural landscape. Purchase a park map, take one of the free white bicycles and enjoy the ride. Visit the free museum, stop at the café or take a picnic lunch and coffee with you. Many places with park benches or picnic tables overlooking lakes or forests. The warmer months are better for wildlife spotting.

Do it! The park supplies free bikes to use to cycle through the park. The fresh air and landscape were refreshing. The visitor centre has a free museum which is educational; targeted to young children but interesting for all.

Nature really is amazing in this place! You can use free bicycles if you pay entrance. You can also buy a map at the entrance.

A beautiful national park with an unique scenery. Every season is perfect as it is so divers. I also love the white bikes which you can use for free. Just take one and ride. The museums located in the park are worth a visit too. Entrance fee is quite expensive though. Especially when you can visit the Veluwezoom and Posbank... More

It is a very beautiful natural park with options of observation of animals. We saw deer from pretty small distance. They give you a bicycle for free, the way is about 17 km. There is different landscape, you will go across woods, dunes and meadows. This is the most beautiful place I have ever been to in Holland. Entrance to... More
