Barneveld, Netherlands


Barneveld (Low Saxon: Barreveld) is a village in the Dutch province of Gelderland and also the capital of the municipality of Barneveld of the same name, known in the middle of the Netherlands for its poultry breeding and trade and as a strongly Protestant community.

In 2020 the village had 34,800 inhabitants, who are called Barnevelders. The Barneveldse Beek flows through the south of Barneveld.


Getting here

By train
Barneveld has three stations on the railway line Amersfoort - Ede-Wageningen, a line nicknamed the chicken line, Barneveld Centrum, Barneveld Noord and Barneveld Zuid. From 2007, a light rail train from Connexxion started running between Barneveld Noord and Amersfoort, 4 times an hour. Trains to Amersfoort and Ede run every half hour from Barneveld Centrum. At Barneveld Noord station there is a P+R from highway A1. From there, a train runs to Amersfoort every 15 minutes.

By bus
A number of long bus services run through the municipality. However, a number of villages cannot be reached by bus. Wittenberg bus station is located in the middle of the buses. Bus lines 102, 105 and 107 will be located here. Bus 102 runs between Amersfoort and Apeldoorn every half hour, every hour in the evenings and weekends. The bus passes through Terschuur. Bus 107 runs every hour from Putten to Ede, every half hour on weekdays during the day. The 107 passes through Stroe. Bus 205 runs every hour between Barneveld and Harderwijk. This bus passes through Voorthuizen and Veenhuizerveld. Appel, Kootwijk and Hoog Buurlo cannot be reached by bus.

By car
North of Barneveld is the A1 and to the west the A30. A transferium was taken into use at Barneveld Noord station in April 2006. Through this free parking facility, the province of Gelderland and the municipality of Barneveld want to encourage motorists to continue their journey to Randstad by train. You will have to use the slow train between Barneveld Noord and Amersfoort. This local train has only limited capacity and so far offers insufficient capacity for a favorable alternative.

On foot
The European walking route E11, locally also called Marskramerpad, runs through a number of villages and hamlets in the municipality of Barneveld. The E11 runs from The Hague to the east, currently to the Poland/Lithuania border. The route can be found on the internet, comes from Achterveld and runs through a varied landscape via Terschuur, Appel, Veenhuizerveld to Stroe. From Stroe, the route enters the Veluwe and runs via heide, Kootwijk, the Kootwijkerzand sand drift and Hoog Buurlo to Hoenderloo. The route passes the former broadcasting station Radio Kootwijk a few kilometers away. For detailed information, please visit the website of Wandelnet.

The name Barneveld may be an old name or a corruption of the name Bronveld. Another possible origin of the name is Amber Field. Another possible explanation: the word "barn" meant "to burn". In the past, (arable) land was often reclaimed by burning down a piece of forest. Barneveld is located in/near the former Nederwoud. The name indicates it: a forest area. In that region there are still many field names with "fire", which indicates reclamation by burning. Barneveld could therefore also have been created on a field created by burning (barning).



Barneveld has existed as a church village since 1333. It is thought that the place already existed in the 12th century because a text from 1174 mentions a Wolfram van Barneveld. The place fulfills a market function in the Gelderse Vallei, but has never been elevated to a city. In the 17th and 18th century Barneveld was an important junction in the network of Hessenwegen. The name Barneveld may be an old name or a corruption of the name Bronveld. Another possible origin of the name is Amber field. Another possible explanation: the word "barnen" meant "burning". In the past, (building) land was often cleared by burning down a piece of forest. Barneveld is located in / near the former Nederwoud. The name indicates it: a forest area. In that region many field names still occur with "fire", which indicates extraction by burning. Barneveld could therefore also have arisen on a field created by burning (barns).

Barneveld has also become famous for the account of the Kabeljauw rider leader Jan van Schaffelaar, who jumped from the tower besieged by Hoeken on 16 July 1482. A statue of him has stood on Torenplein since 1903. Huize De Schaffelaar and the adjacent Schaffelaarse bos, east of the village, are named after him. Since June 2009, the theater (Schaffelaartheater) in Barneveld has also been named after Jan van Schaffelaar.

After the Reformation, the Protestant Barnevelders expelled the last Catholic priest from their village, and he then settled in Achterveld, just across the border from the province of Utrecht, making this village a Catholic enclave in an otherwise Protestant region (Amersfoort and the Veluwe). From Achterveld the priest could still reach his parishioners in Barneveld on foot.



Barneveld was located on the Grebbelinie and therefore suffered greatly from the violence of war at the beginning and the end of World War II. The population was evacuated by the German attack in May 1940, as was the livestock. Most people had to go to Lunteren.

Thanks to the initiative of Secretary-General Frederiks (Interior) (Frederiks plan), at the end of 1942, two places to stay in the municipality of Barneveld became available for the reception of approximately 700 Jewish Dutch nationals, who would be safeguarded from their "merits for Dutch society". deportation. This concerned castle "De Schaffelaar" and house "De Biezen". The German occupier did not keep this promise either. At the end of September 1943, the Jews from Barneveld had to go to Camp Westerbork and from there to Theresienstadt. There, dozens of them died. Some of the others were released in February 1945 during an exchange and transferred to Switzerland. In 1987, a monument by artist Ralph Prins was placed at the driveway of De Schaffelaar, in memory of the internment of the "Barneveld group". On April 16, 1945, the Canadians liberated the village.



The municipality of Barneveld is largely located in the central part of the Gelderse Vallei. In the east and northeast are the sandy soils of the Veluwe with forests, heaths and near Kootwijk the Kootwijkerzand. The municipality is intersected from east to west by the Barneveldse Beek.



The municipality of Barneveld is located in the so-called Bible belt. By national standards, the municipality has many inhabitants with a religious reformed belief. In the municipal elections of 2022, the SGP became the largest party (10 seats). Together with other Christian parties, the ChristenUnie (5 seats) and the CDA (4 seats), they have a majority in the city council.



Instead, a growing majority of the population is Orthodox Protestant. The Hervormde Gemeente is the largest church in the Netherlands. However, the largest church is De Hoeksteen of the Reformed Congregation in the Netherlands with 2,550 seats.




The municipality is characterized by a high concentration of pig farms and poultry farms. The agricultural area consists mainly of grassland and relatively little arable land, except on the edge of the Veluwe and scattered here and there throughout the municipality.

The number of chickens in the municipality of Barneveld is the second largest of all Dutch municipalities, namely 3.2 million chickens, after the municipality of Ede with 3.6 million chickens (2020).

Due to the high concentration of (poultry) livestock, the municipality has a high manure surplus.



There are many campsites, especially in the transition zone between the Valley and the Veluwe, in particular between Voorthuizen and Garderen.



Barneveld has its own daily newspaper in the Barneveldse Krant. The Barneveldse Krant is published by Royal BDU Publishers in Barneveld. The first copy of the daily newspaper appeared on October 24, 1871 and the newspaper has had a stable circulation for many years. However, this newspaper was also hit by cutbacks and its circulation also fell slightly at the beginning of 2013.

Barneveld also has a local broadcaster, Radio Barneveld. Since October 5, 1996, this provides broadcasts for the entire municipality of Barneveld. This station can be received 24 hours a day on 93.5 MHz in the ether, Radio Barneveld on cable can be received on 93.1 MHz.

Since November 2006, the free door-to-door newspaper Barneveld NU from publisher Wegener has been renamed the once-a-week Barneveld Today in order to form a competitor for the Barneveldse Krant. Gradually, the publication frequency was reduced to three times a week (summer 2009) to eventually return to the level of Barneveld NU (summer 2010) with one publication per week on Thursday. According to the editors of the newspaper, people would rather read news on the internet 24/7 and that is the reason for the decline in publication frequency.

The office of the Nederlands Dagblad was also located in Barneveld for many years. This is a daily newspaper that is distributed throughout the Netherlands. The newspaper mainly has subscribers with a Christian background. Since 2017, that newspaper has been based in Amersfoort.
