Hoge Veluwe, National park – The Netherlands

with No Comments

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.
