‘Do not go to the Posbank or the Kootwijkerzand’, expect busy weather in nature


“Our website contains thousands of walks, there are plenty of quiet places”, according to Natuurmonumenten. Staatsbosbeheer has also made a long list of ‘unknown regions’.

Five feet away

The whole of the Netherlands has autumn holidays. Now that not many other excursions are possible due to the corona virus, a walk in the woods is expected to be even more popular.

“But the one and a half meters distance also applies in the forest. Wearing a mouth mask is mandatory, for example, at a covered location such as a watchtower. Group formation is prohibited. And do not leave any waste such as toilet paper and tissues behind.”

Health check

De Hoge Veluwe has calculated that there is space with sufficient distance for at least 127,000 hikers and cyclists in the extensive nature reserve. “It is not necessary to book in advance for a visit to the park. We do a health check at the gate and there is a registration requirement. There are really quiet areas in the park,” said a spokesman.

Natuurmonumenten deploys supervisors in the busiest places. Municipalities and safety regions are also keeping a close eye on the crowds. Roads and parking lots can be temporarily closed and day trippers who really don’t follow the rules risk a fine.
