Soesterberg Airbase

Discover the secret!

In 2009, a large part of Soesterberg transferred to the province of Utrecht. With the departure of the Airforce, the opportunity arose for building both an ecological and a recreational bridge between the northern and southern half of the "Heuvelrug". Commissioned by the concerned parties HOSPER created the master plan for the transformation of the landscape. The secret of Soesterberg is the large open space in a sea of trees and buildings. The preservation and making tangible of this quality has been the central motif for the design.

Meanwhile, the gates are open, the excess pavement has been removed and the former airbase has been opened to the public. In addition, at the foot of the Soesterberg, the keystone of the plan - the new National Military Museum (NMM) - has opened its doors.
