Ermelo is close to a diverse collection of Veluwe’s attractions. Two sights that should be on every visitor’s to-do list is the wonderful Dolphinarium Harderwijk and the iconic Walibi Holland. And if your schedule allows, be sure to visit Aviodrome and Elburg Vischmarkt.
Do make the effort to see some of the nearby museums and galleries, which help make this region the special place it is. Spend part of the day browsing the exhibits at Gemeentemuseum in Elburg, Mondriaanhuis in Amersfoort and Batavia Werf in Lelystad.
If the sun is shining, follow the lead of the locals who know the area best and head outside to the local natural destinations. Hit the trail and enjoy the well-used ecological parks for which this area is well known, like the Hoge Veluwe National Park in Arnhem.
Find the perfect accessory, grab a bite to eat or just window shop at nearby fashion hotspots like Batavia Stad in Lelystad.
Spend an evening high in the stands of New Galgenwaard Stadium, Utrecht, cheering on the Football Club Utrecht. On match days follow the procession of red and white, to the stadium, then after the final whistle blows, join local soccer lovers in the nearby pubs for a few post-game beers.
When you’re ready to relax after a long day exploring the charming streets of Ermelo, check in to one of the area’s numerous accommodation options. The Hotel de Paasberg, Ede, the Hilton Royal Parc Soestduinen and the Mercure Hotel Amersfoort Centre are just some of the best places to find a warm welcome and a good night’s rest.
