Nature surviving worst circumstances
When walking the "zandverstuivingen" try to look down with a sharp curious eye and discover the incredable adaptions that nature has made to these rough circumstances. Temperatures on an average sunny day can vary 40 degrees Celsius easily. At night temperatires at groundlevel drop under zero (also in winter) and when the sun is high in the sky it blazes the temperature up again to around 30 to 40 degrees Celsius). Still, certain mosses and grasses can withstand this intense climat. But even they will have to surrender when the sands come and burry them.
Beautiful nature in and around "De Hoge Veluwe"
This highlight in Dutch "other" landscape is really a must for every nature lover. Added with a highlight for every art lover - the "Kröller-Muller" museum, this place is magnificent. Here it is the largest Van Gogh-collection can be admired, among many other great artworks. The statue garden surroudning the building is yet another rather interesting thing. The park can be entered at Otterlo, as well as Hoenderlo and Arnhem.
Landscape from the top of the "Zanding"
"Zandverstuivingen", places where the sands blown by the wind rule the landscape, are amazing. The dunes swallow whole trees - slowly, but steadily - and the nature on and surrounding them is of an unbelievable adapted kind. Thereby the sands are THE beloved playground for children, so families with them find here an ideal holiday-spot. Anyway, campings are always inviting families in with some extra attractions and activities.
