Hoge Veluwe National Park
De Hoge Veluwe National Park has changed dramatically over the centuries. In the Middle Ages, the area consisted of large shifting sand complexes. At the end of the 19th century, many trees were planted to give this sand a little more hold. Some areas were subsequently deforested again, but in other places the trees remained. This is how the varied landscape of today was created.
