Middle of the Netherlands

Located in the centre of the Netherlands, Lunteren is just 2km from the Lunterse Boer. Lunteren is known for the Lindeboomsberg with its large boulder that is the centre of the Netherlands. Right between the four corners of the Netherlands. Those are Rottemmeroog, (NO), St Anna Ter Muiden (SW), Terschelling (NW) and the Drielandenpunt near Vaals (SE). If you draw a line from NO to SW and you do the same from NW to SE and then draw a perpendicular from the centre of both lines, Lunteren lies exactly where those two perpendiculars cross. On 1 April 1980, the boulder was ‘hijacked’ by students from the Agricultural College in Wageningen and brought to Wageningen’s Market Square. A few weeks later, the boulder was recaptured by a Scout group from Lunteren and brought back to Lunteren, where it was cast in concrete to prevent its recurrence. The stone later cracked, and it was replaced in 2002. Since 2017, the centrepiece has been transformed into an impressive monument by Landscape Architect Michael van Gessel and Eric Blok.

De Veluwe

The Lunterse Boer is located in the beautiful Veluwe, one of the most beautiful nature reserves in the Netherlands. More than worth exploring.

“Dusty sand, beautiful forests, vast heathlands, sheep herds and gently flowing streams…. That’s the Veluwe! But the Veluwe offers more! Top attractions, famous museums, historic towns, modern accommodation, culinary delights and plenty of opportunity to be active in the breathtakingly beautiful Veluwe countryside. The Veluwe stands for active, adventurous, relaxing and challenging. But also for tantalisingly delicious. And all that less than an hour’s drive from the Randstad. Come, discover and experience the Veluwe.”
