Measures against the Coronavirus

Measures against the Coronavirus per March 3, 2021


De Hoge Veluwe National Park operates a subsidy-independent operation. The vast majority of our income has been lost as a result of the Corona crisis. In order to continue to meet our payment obligations in the coming months and to continue to carry out essential management while preserving employment as much as possible, the Park has had to take drastic measures by reducing investment and other expenditure and minimizing or avoiding costs where possible.

During the Corona crisis, our motto will be: space, safety and enjoyment. The Park offers visitors more than enough space to observe the Corona parameters, the Park offers visitors a safe environment in which to recreate on the basis of a strict Corona protocol and the Park tries to allow visitors to enjoy the nature, art and architecture.

The vast majority of visitors behave exemplary and observe the Corona rules. 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.

Those who want to support the Park financially during this difficult time can find information about this on our website
