Once built as a radiostation to communicate internationally (mainly used for phone calls to Dutch East Indies). The building was completed in 1923 and designed by Julius Luthmann with sculptures of Hendrik van den Eijnde. The architect got his inspiration from the Sphinx (we can see a similar composition in head and shoulders). The Art Deco building is designed in a mix of styles: Amsterdamse School with Berlin influences. It is located in the Veluwe, a national park in The Netherlands. The radio station is surrounded by heather and wildlife. Combine a visit with a day to the Kröller-Müller Museum (modern art) or cycling in the national park Hoge Veluwe. And if you are unlucky enough to not see any deer, hog or roe in the park, you still have a chance to spot a frog in the pond next to the building.
Address: Radioweg 1, Radio Kootwijk, The Netherlands
