National Park Veluwezoom
The view from the Posbank
If you’re visiting the Veluwezoom, you have to climb the Posbank. The Posbank is a 90 metre high hill offering an unparalleled view of the reserve. In clear weather, you can see as far as 20 kilometres.
Historic country houses and monumental farms
The southern side of the Veluwezoom offers beautiful estates with grand country houses and monumental farms. The estates of Beekhuizen, Heuven and Rhereroord are historical country houses, complete with parks.
Red deer mating season
There are two wildlife observation posts on the Veluwezoom, allowing you to observe the local wildlife without disturbing the animals. September and October are red deer mating season, during which time male red deer attempt to impress females by roaring (‘burlen’ in Dutch). It’s a spectacle that you don’t want to miss if you’re visiting the Veluwezoom, so be sure to consult the Veluwezoom Visitors’ Centre (Bezoekerscentrum Veluwezoom) for walking paths and guided hikes.
