Things to do for a weekend on the Veluwe


I love the Veluwe because of the beautiful nature of forests, shifting sand plains and heathlands. The Veluwe stretches in the Netherlands between the cities Apeldoorn, Arnhem, Wageningen, Ede and Harderwijk. I live in Nijmegen and so I regularly find a day to spend there and sometimes I book a hotel and I also make it a wonderful weekend away. I enjoy walking, cycling, enjoying the fresh air and enjoying nature in the Veluwe. The Veluwe is different in every season and will never get bored. What are nice things to do on the Veluwe?

I like to share my 5 favorite things to do during a weekend on the Veluwe.
