Garderen... vakantiebestemming op de Veluwe
Garderen, surrounded by woods, shifting sands and heath, was once a farming village is now a popular holiday destination! The 14th century tower of the Dutch Reformed Church and the 19th-century flour mill 'De Hoop' towering high above the village and were used as beacons for fishermen in the Zuiderzee.
Garderen is a lovely place for an active and relaxing holiday. On the Veluwe you will find large, contiguous natural areas and forests as Speulderbos and Kootwijkerzand, a sand plain where it seems like you’re in the desert! Look for red deer, running around in the nature reserves. Maybe you will see Hubert, the famous red deer!
The Veluwe is the second largest nature reserve in the Netherlands.
Garderen is located near Apeldoorn, of course, famous for Het Loo Palace. You will also find family attractions like Juliana and Apeheul. In the city you will also find the Great Church, also known as Queen’s Church (founded in 1892 by Queen Emma).
