De Hoge Veluwe National Park operates a subsidy-independent operation. The vast majority of our income has been lost as a result of Covid-19. In order to continue to meet our payment obligations in the coming months and to continue to carry out the most necessary management, the Park has had to take drastic measures to reduce costs and where possible minimize or avoid them. Measures 1 and 4 below are an example of this.
The vast majority of visitors respond positively and understandingly to our measures and to the limited opening. They also behave in an exemplary manner and observe the safety rules of the authorities. We would like to thank them for that. The Park will remain open to you as long as it is financially feasible and permitted by the government.
We have a clear message for visitors who complain about the adjusted opening hours and not reimbursing 50% of the costs of a Annual Pass by means of letters, emails and messages on social media and among our employees. Those who cannot resist entrusting our employees with this will no longer have access to the Park or be removed from the Park.
