Nunspeet (About this sound pronunciation ) 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.[1] In 1973 Nunspeet became its own separate municipality after having been part of Ermelo before.
