Apeldoorn is located in the east of the country. About an hour from Amsterdam.

Actually, everybody is talking about a city. But it is not a city. Apeldoorn does not have city rights. So, it is just a big village. These days everybody is talking of a city instead of a village.

It is a pretty large city. It has 156,000 inhabents. If you look in the list of biggest cities, Apeldoorn is in the top 15 from the whole country.

There are a view things you can find here in Apeldoorn. They are:

The palace Het Loo
This palace was made by the Royal Family a couple of centuries ago. Today it is a museum.

Monkey zoo Apenheul
Up here you can find about 25 different kind of monkeys. Some of them are walking around in the park and can jump on you!

Amusement park for kids Koningin Julianatoren
This amusement park is suitable for kids till age 10 or 12.

Shopping street
Every city has it's shopping street. Up here there is pretty much just one street, which is a bit of a bummer.

Volleybal club Dynamo
Visit a match of the men's team which are playing in the premier division.

Visit one of the many restaurant that are situated everywhere in this city.
