De Dellen is a special estate, with its own history. There are many red deer here. Nearby is an observation post on a hill: a good location to observe bellowing deer.

The Dellen
From your starting point you first walk to the De Dellen estate. The area is characterized by forest and heathland, which are crossed by picturesque avenues. Many red deer live here, maybe one will cross your path! Until 1800, the area still consisted mainly of heathland, after which it was reclaimed as an estate by a general of the Batavian republic. Farmlands were laid out on the heathland and became forested. In 1851 it became the property of meteorologist Buys Ballot.

roaring deer
You continue walking through the woods. It is wonderfully quiet here in the Veluwe! Enjoy the view from the observation tower on the Holle Berg on the edge of the heath. In the rutting season, from mid-September to mid-October, this is a good place to spot bellowing deer. Pull laced? Don't worry, before you know it you'll be back at Pannenkoekenrestaurant De Ossenstal, where you can eat a tasty snack.
