Hunting Lodge Saint Hubert - Otterlo

N 52.1215055 / E 5.832816

Hunthouse Sint Hubertus is located in the former country estate, nowadays National Park, De Hoge Veluwe. At the beginning of the 20th century, the Rotterdam couple Helene Muller and businessman Anthony Georg Kroller buy land on the Veluwe and combine it into a new country estate of over 6800 hectares. In the northern part, a new country estate is created, with accompanying garden layout, as a hunting lodge and country house. Berlage is the architect. Before completion, he withdraws after friction with the clients and the Belgian architect Henry Clemens van de Velde takes over.

The legend of St. Hubert has had a name and form defining influence. Saint Hubert (655-727) was the last bishop of Maastricht and the first of Liège. He converted to Christianity after he wanted to shoot a deer while hunting. When he almost caught it, a luminous cross appeared between the deer's antlers and a voice sounded, telling Hubertus to go to bishop Lambert of Maastricht. The hunting lodge in Otterlo has the shape of a deer's antlers and a cross is depicted on the tower.

PLEASE NOTE: Access to the hunting lodge is only possible through the entrance of Park de Hoge Veluwe.
