Should I visit the Kröller-Müller museum during our Dutch cycling tour?
A visit to the museum is an experience. A journey of discovery that already starts at the entrance of De Hoge Veluwe National Park. On foot or on a free white bicycle, visitors can roam freely in nature, to arrive at this beautiful treasure room in the Netherlands. The unique combination of art, nature and architecture guarantees a special experience. An experience that stimulates all senses. The museum is a paradise for experienced art lovers and uninhibited newcomers. With more than 350,000 visitors a year, the Kröller-Müller Museum is one of the most visited museums in the Netherlands.
With nearly 90 paintings and more than 180 drawings, the museum owns the second largest Van Gogh collection in the world. In addition, the collection contains masterpieces by modern masters such as Claude Monet, Georges Seurat, Pablo Picasso and Piet Mondriaan.
The museum is the life's work of Helene Kröller-Müller. Between 1907 and 1922, together with her husband Anton Kröller, she purchased nearly 11,500 works of art, with which her collection can be counted among the largest private collections of the twentieth century.
The museum is surrounded by one of the largest sculpture gardens in Europe. A 25-hectare outdoor room in which modern sculpture finds a natural destination. Scattered through the garden are more than 160 sculptures by image-determining artists, from Auguste Rodin to Henry Moore, from Jean Dubuffet to Joep van Lieshout.
At Holland Bike Tours we have several tours that cover this park such as; the Water and Woods tour, the Market Garden tour and the National Park Discovery. However, want to include this park in another tour? We can customize any route and include this beautiful area.
