We have been on holiday in Otterlo for a week and visited the national park De Hoge Veluwe in the Netherlands. The nature of De Hoge Veluwe National Park is overwhelming. Many different and varied landscapes, mixed forrests, moor and wet lands, grass plains and shifting sand landscapes. These landscapes are home to an unprecedented diversity of plant and animal species. From the rare fritillary butterfly to the imposing red deer, from the gentian blue to the small salsify. The Park has more than a hundred Red List species, such as the wheatear, the turning neck, the moor frog and the grass snake. During our visit to the park, we came face to face with Red Deer and Roe deer several times, but there were also wild boars and mouflons.
Here are some impressions:
