There are four handy departure points to start your visit to the Sallandse Heuvelrug: The Sallandse Heuvelrug Outdoor Centre, Information Barn/Erve de Pas, Canadian Cemetery Information Centre and Holterberg Nature Museum. The Sallandse Rug Outdoor Centre has a wealth of information about the natural surroundings, geology and (cultural) history of this unique area. The Dutch Forest Management Agency, IVN Nature education, the Centre for Nature and Environment Education, Hellendoorn Observatory and the Sallandse Heuvelrug National Park all have their home bases here. The Society for the Preservation of Nature and De Schurinkshoeve have created an amazing meeting place at Erve De Pas. Tavern De Pas is a great place for a delicious lunch made with local products.
The Canadian Cemetery Information Centre keeps the memory alive of the fallen with personal stories, anecdotes and photos - often donated by relatives. Discover how the Northeast of the Netherlands was liberated and find out more about the fallen soldiers and how the war cemetery was established. A visit to the information centre is free of charge and there is good access for disabled people. Holterberg Nature Museum is not just a museum about nature; it is also the information centre for the National Park and forms the southerly entrance to the area. The Holterberg and its nature museum are very well-known: enjoy nature, the tranquillity, the panoramic views and the animal world. Holterberg Nature Museum has become one of the leading nature museums in our country. The Daantje Das (Badger) play, learn and do forest has been improved, as well as the exciting treasure hunts in the museum.
