  • It is wonderful to be here,a very nice selection of trees and plants, you have a nice view when you walk the hamamelisroute.  more »
  • Actually it is here the whole year, but mainly from spring to early autumn. Wonderful to there-together-to roam around. The Arboretum features over 7000 plant species and there are trees of more than 150 years old. At the end can be something to drink or eat in the restaurant light and weather permitting, you can sit out on the terrace.

  • Nice, neat, colorful, delightful garden or park to stay. Fun spots, pond and especially special trees, plants, borders etc. Tasty drinks in the cafeteria and a really nice gift shop!

  • Heaven for gardeners, but also a wonderful place for anybody who loves flowers, plants, trees, landscaping or just a walk in a park. Great show of things you struggle to grow in your own garden, in grown up version and in varieties you see nowhere else. Great at any time of year, but especially for winter flowers (witch Hazel, snow drops, helebores...) and early to late spring (cherry trees, azaleas, rhododendron, cornus...) and early summer (peonies, Roses...). Great finds of rare plants, books and gardening things at the shop, albeit a bit on the pricy side.
  • 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
  • Always a great pleasure to visit this garden!
  • 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.
