The municipality of Ede has over 106.430 inhabitants. It is a rapidly developing residential and business area, rich in greenery, with continually expanding economic activity. Provisions in the field of education, culture and health are keeping apace with this. Does this surprise you?
Perhaps because you only know Ede as a holiday area, famous for its woods, heathland, drifting sands and the Hoge Veluwe National Park where the Museonder (Subterranean Museum) and the Kröller-Müller Museum are located. All that is true, but Ede is so much more…

The municipality of Ede has several museums, including the word-famous Kröller-Müller Museum and the Dutch Tile Museum in Otterlo, which houses a unique collection of tiles and tile tableaux, and the Museum of Sight and Sound in Bennekom.

The Kröller-Müller Museum, beautifully situated in the heart of the Hoge Veluwe National Park located near Otterlo , contains around 300 works by Vincent van Gogh and the works of many Dutch impressionists. The museum is surrounded by a sculpture garden, more than 11-hectares large. Not far from the museum, you will find the beautiful Saint Hubertus hunting lodge, designed by Berlage. A futher exceptional feature of the National Park is the 'Museonder': the first subterranean museum in the world. A number of prominent galleries are located in the municipality of Ede, such as Simonis & Buunk.
