Nunspeet ( pronunciation (help·info)) is a municipality and town in the central Netherlands. It has been an agricultural site since prehistoric times. It contains a number of villages, namely Hulshorst, Elspeet, and Vierhouten. Nunspeet has a vivid historical foundation, called Nuwenspete. In 1973 Nunspeet became its own separate municipality after having been part of Ermelo before.
Nunspeet is a popular tourist area because it is surrounded by woods, holiday resorts, and the town center located around the main market square.
Nunspeet is situated on the shore of the Veluwemeer (Veluwe lake) which makes it popular for water leisure. There is also a small lake called "de Zandenplas" which is a popular holiday resort.
Other tourist attractions include the weekly market and the town festival, De nacht van Nunspeet (Nunspeet Night) and the Eibertjesmarkt (Eibertjes market), as well as an annual sporting event called "de Keiler".
