Masterful enjoyment in the culinary village of Vierhouten

Vierhouten owes the honorary title ‘The culinary pearl of the Veluwe’ to the hospitable hotels, restaurants and of course  the Wild Days . The name Vierhouten probably refers to the four woods that surround the village: the Vierhouterbos, the Vreebos, the Elspeterbos and the Gortelsebos. Here you will find gnarled trees, shifting sand, moors, quiet fens and open spaces. Red deer, roe deer, wild boar, mouflon, badgers and hawks can cross your path here.

You can visit the amphitheater on Paasheuvel. The terrace and the open-air theater were built in 1937 to a design by garden architect G. Bleeker. The natural shape of the terrain was taken as a starting point for this. The seats are arranged in a semicircle, stepped in twelve rows around a raised egg-shaped stage. The theater is on the National Monuments List.
