Jachtslot St. Hubertus
The St. Hubertus hunt lodge is the former residence of the Kröller-Müller family. This impressive hunt lodge was designed in 1914 by H.P. Berlage. Mr. Kröller was an avid hunter. The hunt lodge is based on the legend of St. Hubertus, the patron saint of hunters. Legend has it that Hubertus (665), a lawless and frivolous hunter, encountered a deer during one of his many hunting parties, wearing a shining cross in its antlers.
He was so impressed that he reverted to Christianity, and then made it to Bishop. Not only the stained-glass windows in the hall visualise this legend. The two wings of the building and the large tower symbolise the antlers and the shining cross of the deer.
Numerous species, from the giant gorilla to the smallest monkey in the world, each live in their own spacious wooded areas. A large number of monkeys even climbs and clambers freely among the visitors.
