Deelense Veld

Deelense Veld is a very special part of De Hoge Veluwe National Park. In many places, hard iron banks prevent rainwater from sinking into the soil, creating a string of fens – a wet ‘savannah’ of purple moor-grass. In summer, Deelense Veld buzzes with dragonflies, chased by falcons. Snipes use the fens for their courtship rituals, and the area is also home to vipers and rare butterflies, such as the Alcon blue.
