Location information for Apeldoorn

Introduction

Apeldoorn is the largest city in the Veluwe region, a forest area in the province of Gelderland. Apeldoorn itself also has a lot of green, especially in the - nomen est omen - Park area (Parkenbuurt), to the north of the city centre. In that area there are beautiful villas and stately houses. In recent years, the city centre has been renovated extensively, giving it a modern look. Critics argue that the city centre is boring.
In 1684, Steward Willem III bought huis Het Loo and turned it into a palace. The palace is situated on the north-western side of Apeldoorn.

Population

The municipality of Apeldoorn has 155,000 inhabitants. It is a fairly large municipality that also includes several towns and villages in the area. It was only in the last hundred years that Apeldoon developed into one of the major cities in the Netherlands. That development continues today, because thanks to the construction of new suburbs, the city will be able to keep growing, and in years to come reach a population of some 170,000.

In the 1960's, several government services were moved to Apeldoorn (among others the IRS), and the large insurance company Centraal Beheer also has its main office in Apeldoorn. In addition, there are a few transport companies, and Apeldoorn tries to attract innovative companies in the ICT sector.
The city is building a large Omnisport centre, which will consist of an athletics and cycling hall, a top sports hall and additional facilities. When is it ready (in 2008), it will be the only accommodation in the country that will meet international standards for athletics and indoor cycling.
Apeldoorn works together economically with two other cities (Deventer and Zutphen) in the co-called 'City triangle'.
