(Het Nationale Park De Hoge Veluwe is een gebied van 5500 hectare op de Veluwe, het grootste laagland natuurterrein in noordwest Europa. De Veluwe ligt in de provincie Gelderland. Het park is grotendeels gelegen in de gemeente Ede. Op 26 april 1935 opent het Nationaal Park De Hoge Veluwe voor het eerst zijn poorten voor de bezoekers. Daarvoor was het uitgestrekte natuurgebied eigendom van het echtpaar Kröller-Müller. Zij lieten door de architect Berlage het jachtslot St. Hubertus bouwen en inrichten als buitenhuis. De kunstcollectie van het echtpaar Kröller-Müller vormde de basis voor het in het park gelegen Kröller-Müller Museum. Het museum bevat schilderijen, met name van Vincent van Gogh, Pablo Picasso, Fernand Leger en Piet Mondriaan. De beeldentuin van het museum is een van de grootste van Europa en bevat werken van onder andere Auguste Rodin, Henry Moore, Richard Serra en Claes Oldenburg.)
