Resting area during the winter months

The Oostvaardersbos and Kotterbos woods are resting areas for red deer, Heck cattle and Konik horses during the winter months. These areas have limited access for the general public during this period. The De Oostvaarders nature experience centre can be reached by car throughout the year and is open for walkers and cyclists. The path linking the nature experience centre and the cycle bridge at the Oostrand park remains open. If you have any questions regarding accessibility, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
