History of St. Hubertus
St. Hubertus is owned by the Kröller-Müller couple, who are famous for the museum of the same name. Renowned Dutch architect Hendrik Petrus Berlage designed the residence. But did you know the country house resembles a deer? Berlage was inspired by the legend of saint Hubertus, who is the patron of the hunt. To honor this saint he designed the castle into the shape of a deer head. If you are looking at pictures of the country residence, you might not be able to make out a deer head. But if you look at the schematics of the house’s design, you’ll see it!
Not only did Berlage design the structure, but he also created all off the surroundings! Check out the bridge, the gardens and the complete interior design to see his complete work. The grounds feel very cohesive in their design; no wonder St. Hubertus country residence is one of the most well known country houses in the Netherlands!
