On Sunday 2nd June, I plan to make a day trip to the Hoge Veluwe National Park, near Arnhem, and it's always to share these travel experiences with others - could others would be interested in joining me that day?
Some info on the park can be found here (http://www.hogeveluwe.nl/en/14):
"De Hoge Veluwe National Park is the largest actively managed conservation area in private hands in the Netherlands. The Park covers 5,400 hectares of woodland, heathland, peat bogs and drift sand. It enjoys a wide variety of plants and animals and provides habitats to extremely rare Red List species. Together with the Country-residence/Museum Jachthuis Sint Hubertus, Visitor Centre/Museonder, Kröller-Müller Museum and the Sculpture Garden the Park forms a unique and (inter)nationally renowned combination of nature, art and architecture."
UPDATE: We might meet at Amsterdam Centraal Station, in front of Starbucks at 10am. I will come prepared with a RED UMBRELLA and MEETUP SIGN - I don't think we will be difficult to miss!
Train from Amsterdam Centraal (platform 5) to Arnhem: 10:23 -> 11:29
Full day return train fares are E30.60 but, if a few of us have train discount cards, we might share discounted rates among us.
UPDATE: The simplest way of getting train tickets would be to get the 17.50 euro day pass from your local HEMA BEFORE coming to the train stations (thanks Claire for pointing this out!).
From Arnhem station, we can get the no. 9 bus to Schaarsbergen (Koningsweg stop).
For those who might prefer to drive there, we might meet you at the Schaarsbergen entrance at 12:00.
Basic entry into the park is E8.40 per adult (10% discount for groups of at least 20), E16.80 per adult including entry Kröller-Müller Museum.
Basic entry includes free use of the white bicycles to explore the park - which we can do until 22.00hrs :)
Hope to have a great day out - everyone is welcome!
UPDATE: Finally, if there is a drastic change in the weather, I will cancel this event and announce it at ~0830hrs on Sunday. Hope you will understand and be aware.
