A sunny spring day, a gentle breeze, horses grazing in lush fields, a cuckoo in the woods, the rattle of machine guns and the soft clump of a mortar. This is one of the Netherlands’ oldest and largest national parks, the Hoge (high) Veluwe. It also contains the greatest private art collection of the early 20th century.

In the early part of the 20th century the fabulously wealthy Helene Kroller-Muller and husband Anton assembled the world’s greatest private collection of art, including over two hundred works by Vincent van Gogh. They are now displayed in the Kroller-Muller Museum in the central Netherlands near Arnhem, surrounded by the Hoge Veluwe National Park, formerly the family’s private nature reserve.
The magnificent sculpture garden is a highlight.
