Since 1924, Huis Wylerberg proudly adorns the lateral moraine along the border between the Dutch city of Nijmegen en the city of Kleve in Germany. However, the history of the house goes back much further. The story that led to the house’s construction finds its origins already in the 19th century, and the first World War has also played an important role in its eventual creation. The German Marie Schuster-Hiby had the house built and was also the first occupant. After her death in 1949, her daughter moved into the building, after which she sold it to the Dutch state in the 1960s. Huis Wylerberg has since then been property of the Forestry Commission (Staatsbosbeheer) and is currently being used by various nature conservation organisations.
