Charming village in the midst of nature

Now, don't let the pictures fool you as I have been making then on an early morning in winter, when rain was coming down continuously. In summertime this is one of the best places to stay if you are going for a vacation on the "Veluwe". "On", because the Veluwe is a range of hills that are covered with forests. Garderen counts no more then a few hundred souls, but in summertime it is added with a few thousand tourists. The choose one of the various camp grounds around Garderen or a hotel, pension, B&B or bungalow.

A village where farmhouses rule

Garderen used to be a shepperds colony, which still can be seen to many of the large farmhouses that are spread from the centre of the village 'til far around. Near some of them, still a sheep's stable is to be found: a typical low construction with often a straw roof. Now-a-days the farmhouses in the centre often have a touristic role to play. Shops (not seldomly for antiques or decorative stuff) have taken the place of the farmer and his sheeps.
