I have a hard time keeping up with my garden, but this is huge. I especially like the island with room for children to play. It gives them an escape. I am sure your experience will depend on the time you visit in the year....More

Wonderful day out! The sun shone and the gardens were a joy to behold in all their glory, teeming with bees, insects, butterflies, birds and loads of frog and pond life. You need a full day and good walking shoes to do the place justice!...More

We were there on a tour. Wish we could have spent another couple of hours, the gardens are made into manageable sized garden which are realistic for the size of most homes. Loads of great ideas a must see.

This is not about the gardens but the front of house staff. Arriving from Britain in atrocious weather, the receptionist was most unwelcoming and refused a request from us to buy a coffee unless we paid the 25 euro admission charge. The weather was so...More

We thoroughly enjoyed hours of walking through the Gardens of Appeltern. Well worth your visit! We like the audio tour too (ask for your language at the entrance: Dutch, English or German). The people working there are enthusiastic and we also liked the garden shop...More
