The Veluwe is a mainly forested region north of Arnhem, in the province of Gelderland in the Netherlands. Most of it is on higher ground - the highest point is about 110 m, a noteworthy elevation for such a flat country. The Veluwe is the best-known 'natural' region in the highly urbanised Netherlands and is a popular destination for Dutch tourists making day trips.
