St. Hubertas Hunting Lodge212 veces vistaThe hunting lodge of St. Hubertas was in De Hoge Veluwe National Park. It is also the largest National park in the Netherlands. They also have the Kroller-Muller Museum which has the largest collection of Van Gogh paintings...even more than the Van Gogh museum in Amsterdam. We unfortunately didn't realize this until later and thus just rode by it. The dutch really know how to enjoy a National Park...they have bikes at all of the entrances. Nobody drives through the national park...imagine that!
