  • I come here for years and have 10 a 11 times a year. In each year there is tide what to see, even in winter. The arboretum is well maintained and it's been a few times extended. You come here also to rest. Furthermore, there are enough banks to rest. After the walk, you can still find some food or drink in the cafeteria and there is still a small garden centre. I'm not going to mention the types of plants that there are, but I want to there notes that a large collection of Hamamelissen and Rhodo's.

  • Unique plants garden with thousands of different species of plants and trees and a lot of romantic resting points along the way. After the rhododendrons are now (June) the roses in full bloom: a treat for our eyes and sense of smell. During the summer months get the arboretum garden there is an extra dimension in the various works of art that are exhibited there. Highly recommended for a family outing (admittedly a fee) in a wonderful nature. Free handicap people who use a wheelchair.

  • Nice big and lots of grass walkways. Good parking. Small pavement in concrete. Grass walkways are ok to do with a buggy. Not easy for steps or bikes. Also option to but plants. Small cafeteria with small selection of snacks. Lots of space to sit and cheap. Good sanitation facilities
  • We visit these huge, beautiful gardens on a regular basis.
  • A beautiful garden, very calm and peaceful when you get away from the road and railway. Lots of birds, and the occasional rabbit. The information is only in Dutch, but the plant names are in Latin, so not really a problem for non-Dutch speakers.
  • Very nice botanique garden. Specialisme in trees and bushes.
  • Wonderful garden to get list in (figuratively and effectively)
