The story of the 2.000 Allied airborne troops that landed in 1944 on Ginkel Heath is known to many. The history of Operation Pegasus, Fliegerhorst Deelen and the role of the world famous art museum Kröller Müller in World War 2 are less known. Another interesting feature is the military architecture. With 10 buildings the former garrison terrain in Ede shows over 100 years of Dutch military architecture, illustrating the development of the Dutch army.
In 1944, aircraft dropped more than 2,000 parachutists over Ginkel Heath. During the Airborne Landings and Commemoration on 21 September, we remember the brave warriors who fought for our freedom.More information
Kröller-Müller air-raid shelter temporarily open
In honour of the 75th commemoration, Helene Kröller-Müller's air-raid shelter will be available to visit from 19 September through 29 October. This is where the works of art in the Kröller-Müller Museum collection were stored to protect them from the war. This is a unique opportunity, as this air-raid shelter has never been open to the public.More information
