The gardens offer a lot of different sample gardens to give you inspiration for your own garden. The main challenge is that if you are more into modern gardens you will not be able to find them here. Do be prepared to spend a couple of hours walking around as there is plenty to see!

Spent some 3 hours here, nice gardens, lovely plants, trees and garden ideas.

Not sure if we even covered all, gets overwhelming in the end.

This attraction is a dream for all garden lovers. You will be inspired by the many sample gardens to make your own garden innovative and attractive. You will also receive active advice and support on certain dates. There are digital audio guides that explain the individual gardens presented and there are also many small restaurants where you can relax on the tour through the huge grounds, which are so well designed that a visit is also worthwhile if you don't have your own garden.

The staff on the entire premises is very friendly. One is often addressed and greeted in a friendly way.

Again an excursion as part of our river cruise trip on MS Serenity and the tour of the Dutch Bulb Fields and Gardens of Holland. Upon arrival we were greeted by the guides who were to take the various groups around the gardens and we were lucky enough to be shown around by the owner who founded this exceptional show garden site 30 years ago. Each garden is exceptional and has a different theme and as the weather had brightened up it was a joy to explore this wonderful place in glorious sunshine. The cafe is great to relax in and enjoy a drink and there is also a small gift shop and an area where you can purchase plants.

This is very very repeatable! We spent circa 2hrs wandering around and chatting including a brief coffee at the end but didn’t see everything. Winter entrance was free for us and really worth seeing. Can’t wait for late spring or summer to return because the plants will transform it even more! It seems more like a place for inspiration and garden design with countless sample gardens and ideas (look at it from google satellite view). The shop by the restaurant has got nice articles. There wasn’t a typical garden shop (or it was closed). Will definitely return here!
