Lookout tower on the veluwe


There is a lot to see and experience in the Veluwe, Gelderland. For example, there are a number of lookout towers to be found, including one in Putten.

On 18 October 2018 I visited the “Forest Tower” with my family, as the lookout tower on Landgoed Schovenhorst is called.
At least, I stood there and looked at it, while husband and son defy the stairs.

Special

What I find so special about this tower is that the platform at the top is overgrown. There are trees. That's how it's like you're on the ground floor.

Accessibility

In the area the tower is well signposted by brown signs with white letters.
Parking is possible in a parking lot on the right side of the road. Buy tickets at the Brasserie.
On foot via Landgoed Schovenhorst (along beautiful, separate trees) you cross the road. A short path leads to the forest tower.
