National Parcs in the Netherlands

The twenty Dutch National Parks form a colourful mosaic of nature areas, characterised by their exceptional landscapes and rare plants and animal species. Landowners, site managers and other stakeholders ensure that the special characteristics of these areas remain intact and the most exquisite nature sites are preserved. In National Parks nature can be experienced at close hand, for recreation, obtaining information or education and research.

You are welcome to visit the National Parks and enjoy the peace and space that they offer. Each season has its own special charm. You will be surprised by the large diversity of nature to be found in the parks, and between the different parks themselves.

There are other fabulous nature parks that you can visit in a very different part of the Kingdom of the Netherlands – in the Dutch Antilles and Aruba.
