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

We visited on a cool and showery Saturday, which had the advantage of keeping the crowds down. We had no problem getting white bikes in good repair, and were pleased to see that my vertically challenged wife (5 feet even) was able to adjust hers to suit her height. There are enough paths to keep you riding all day if... More

The park was started by wealthy Anton en Helene Kröller-Müller some hundred years ago as private hunting grounds. It has an open structure with many parts closed as protection for animals in the area. There are three main entrances where you can pick up a free white bicycle to get around. The park has a limited number of paths for... More

While many of the other locations we visited in the Netherlands in summer were loaded with tourists, this attraction was truly a hidden gem mostly enjoyed by the locals. Only an hour ride from Amsterdam this beautiful park offered a variety of attractions. The free bikes allow you the opportunity to ride and enjoy the peaceful beauty of the park.... More
