Surrounding area

The Veluwe: one of the most beautiful nature reserves in Holland. Landgoed de Scheleberg is located in the middle of the woods of Lunteren, Gelderland, and is surrounded by diverse landscapes, from sand drifts to forests and heaths.

From the park, you can explore the unique surroundings by car, bicycle or on foot. There are various cycling and walking routes through nature and charming villages and towns such as Ede, Otterlo, Bennekom, Harskamp and Wekerom.

Besides the beautiful nature, there are also many cultural hotspots in the surrounding area. The Hoge Veluwe National Park, the Open Air Museum in Arnhem and the Kröller Müller Museum are certainly worth a visit during your stay at Landgoed de Scheleberg.

Area surrounding Landgoed De Scheleberg

Did you know that the Geographical Centre of the Netherlands is only 3 kilometres from the park? You can walk from Landgoed de Scheleberg to the Geographical Centre of the Netherlands, which is located on Lindeboomsberg in the woods of Lunteren, in under three quarters of an hour. 

On Oud-Lunterse Dag ("Old Lunteren Day"), the annual village fête on the last Saturday of August, you'll travel a hundred years back in time: the residents dress in "old Lunteren" costumes, there is a fair and a parade (the Reutemeteut) is held with decorated carts and tractors. 

Day trips

There are all kinds of things to do on the park itself and in Ede. For example, you could visit one of the nearby zoos, museums, amusement parks or indoor and outdoor play areas.
