The landscapes in the area that is now called “National Park the Hoge Veluwe” were shaped in the course of thousands of years. At the beginning of the 20th century a couple Anton Kröller and Helene Müller bought several pieces of land and released deer, wild pigs and other animals to create a private hunting area. When they ran out of money the Dutch State came up with a construction to buy it.They received the art collection of Mrs Müller and build a Museum on the property: the Kröller Müller museum. When I was visiting the Park I could still hear shooting, these days because of exercises within a military complex of the Dutch army that is situated there. The animals seemed to be used to it.
