The province of Gerlderland is a place of contrasts in the sense that you'll find here some vast green areas, forests, parks, as well as many castles and palaces like Palace van Loo in Apeldoorn, Huis Bergh, in s’Heerenberg, Oldenaller and many others. So it's up to ou to tailor your holiday in Gelderland just the way you want, but definitely don't miss the Kröller-Müller Museum in Otterlo. Why? Well, firstly it's easily accessible from a holiday home in Gelderland, and it's famous and beautiful not only because of the collection of modern art with works by famous artists like Van Gogh and Mondrian, but also because of its unique sculpture garden and park.
