Ede, located in the southwest fringe of the Veluwe area of Netherlands is well-known for its scenic meadows, heathlands and dense forests that are just a 5-minute stroll from the city centre. Visitors arriving from all over the world by the many cheap flights to Ede that is just 89 km away from Amsterdam also visit Wageningen, a neighbouring town that is historically important for being the place where Germany officially surrendered, thereby bringing an end to World War II.
Ede is noted for its extensive green stretches, woods, heaths and several agricultural farms, and, most importantly, its all-pervasive peace and quietude. The Hoge Veluwe National Park is a star attraction of the city, being the biggest privately managed conservation area in the country. Extending over 5,400 hectares of woods, heaths, peat bogs and sand dunes, the park has a wide variety of flora and fauna, even providing habitats to some of the rare and endangered species included in the Red List. The Country-residence/Museum Jachthuis with its unique antler-like architecture, the Kröller-Müller Museum with its large collection of paintings by Dutch masters, and the Sculpture Garden provide additional and engrossing hours of engagement. The Museonder, situated in the Visitor Centre, is the world’s first underground museum and offers an incredible understanding of what lies below the Earth’s surface. The lovely Berlage-designed Saint Hubertus hunting lodge that is within the park grounds should not be missed on any count.
Summertime tourists find Ede overflowing with a multitude of events that include open-air theater performances, bustling evening markets, art exhibitions and musical events of which the Heideweek is the most famous.
