Dutch Open Air Museum in Arnhem (Excursion 1)

EXCURSION 1: Dutch Open Air Museum

The Dutch Open Air Museum in Arnhem captures the history of Dutch everyday lives. In authentic buildings, objects and true stories they take you on a journey through time. From two centuries ago to very recently. The people of the museum seem to have walked away from the past. Proud of their heritage, they inspire you with their stories and are curious about yours.

Authentic buildings from across the Netherlands
The Dutch Open Air Museum covers an area of around 44 hectares and is full of all kinds of authentic, unusual buildings. Each of these has its own fascinating history and an interesting story to tell. In the museum park you will find around 100 historic buildings, farmhouses and mills. Not only can these be viewed from the outside, but you can also step inside for a look around! This brings you closer to history and gives you the chance to experience the past again.

The Canon exhibition
Based around 50 windows to the past, the Canon of Dutch History leads you through the most important events, people and objects that have helped shape the Netherlands we live in today. Spectacular ‘film sets’, flowing one into another, tell stories from the Canon, spread across 10 successive periods of history. In the exhibition you will come face to face with historic figures from each era. You will get to know them and their world through games, animations and films. And, of course, through objects – evidence of their stories that has survived the passage of time. In the film room you can learn about the origins of the Netherlands and its population, climate and geography, while, in the final room, there is a wealth of information about the entire Canon to explore on an 18-metre-wide touchscreen.

Guided Tour
There is much to see and do in the Open Air Museum! It is almost impossible to see and experience everything. That is why the guided tour is a godsend. An inspired guide will take you back in time and tell stories that tie in with the highlights of the museum.

Hoge Veluwe National Park and Kröller-Müller Museum (Excursion 2)

 

EXCURSION 2: Hoge Veluwe National Park and Kröller-Müller Museum

 

At the beginning of the last century, in 1909, the wealthy couple Kröller-Müller bought a large piece of land in the Veluwe. The family, who lived in the west of the country, spent their holidays here. This former estate and private hunting ground is the current 'National Park De Hoge Veluwe'.

 

The Park

The park covers 5,500 hectares of woodland, heath, grasslands and shifting sands, and is the natural habitat for deer, moeflon and wild boar. On foot or on one of the free White Bicycles, you are free to roam around in nature. The free White Bicycles (1,800 in total) are stationed at the three entrances to the park, at the visitors’ centre and at the museum.

In the visitors’ centre you can learn more about the nature, landscape, animals, culture and history of The Hoge Veluwe. Nature films are shown in the auditorium, and in the Museonder you get a surprising look at everything that lives and has lived under the earth surface!

At the Kröller-Müller Museum, you will find the world’s finest Vincent van Gogh collection and enjoy masterpieces by modern masters such as Claude Monet, Georges Seurat, Pablo Picasso and Piet Mondriaan. The museum is  a treasure trove of De Stijl and futurism, and will surprise you with presentations of contemporary artists. Jachthuis Sint Hubertus is the former country house of Mr and Mrs Kröller-Müller. This ‘total artwork’ by architect H.P. Berlage is one of the Netherlands’ most important monuments. .

In the sculpture garden, you will stroll past works by Barbara Hepworth, Jean Dubuffet, Marta Pan and others.

This excursion consists of two visits to phenotyping related companies.

 

Ter Laak Orchids
Ter Laak Orchids was founded in 1954 and is currently being run by the brothers Eduard and Richard ter Laak. In the two nurseries in Wateringen, they grow around 6 million Phalaenopsis plants annually for garden centres, florists and retailers throughout Europe. At the moment at any rate; once the new Daylight Greenhouse is ready, they can produce 8 million plants per year on a total surface area of 17.5 ha.

Ter Laak Orchids wants to make a positive contribution to a sustainable world and minimise the environmental impact. They invest in sustainable solutions that help reduce energy consumption and CO2 emissions and stop wasting water. The most recent developments is the building of a energy-efficient Daylight Greenhouse and underground water storage. Ter Laak makes optimal use of the surface area by having a second cultivation layer, use LED lighting and grow as organically as possible.

During the excursion you will get a guided tour through the technical and production area, followed by a tour through the inspiration center.
