Hoge Veluwe National Park
The natural beauty found at the Hoge Veluwe National Park is truly awe-inspiring. Different Veluwe landscapes, dating back to the ice age, constantly alternate one another. During your trip through the Park, you’ll pass deciduous, coniferous and mixed forests, as well as heathlands (wet and dry), grasslands and sand drifts. (SOURCE: www.hogeveluwe.nl)
Apeldoorn Art Nouveau Walk
Because of its rich history, the Apeldoorn city centre is also an exceptional place. Did you know, for example, that the city centre has lots of Art Nouveau facades and features? This art movement was extremely popular during the period between 1890 and 1914. (SOURCE: www.apeldoorn-binnenstad.nl)
Het Loo Palace
At the heart of the Netherlands and on the outskirts of Apeldoorn is the Het Loo Palace. This former Royal Palace has been open to the public since 1984, having first gone through a thorough renovation process. The furnishings in the rooms and hallways give us an idea of how the House of Orange lived and worked over the course of 300 years. The baroque gardens have been laid symmetrically in 17th century style and are unique in the Netherlands. Throughout the aforementioned 300 years, the palace had many residents and underwent numerous changes.
Orpheus Theatre in Apeldoorn is one of the five largest theatres in the Netherlands. It presents a variety of performances, ranging from cabaret to classical music and from plays to theatre concerts. The theatre has 3 performance halls and a capacity of between 242 and 1300.
Apenheul Primate Park
At Apenheul, you’ll find a forest filled with free-roaming monkeys. Here, more than half of the primates roam freely through the natural environment along with human visitors.
This zoo is located in natural Veluwe surroundings on the outskirts of Apeldoorn.
