About Kijktuinen Nunspeet
In the centre of the Netherlands, at the border of the Veluwe with the woodland and nature reserve are characteristic gardens created with a great deal of love for detail. The gardens cover nearly 4,5 hectares of which 2 hectares are landscaped by garden and landscape architect L.J. Goedegebuure.
The show and experimental gardens of the garden architect Goedegebuure can be found hidden away on the edge of the town of Nunspeet. From spring to autumn, visitors are welcomed by a rippling sea of blossoms in a range of colours, shapes and perfumes.
Visitors find an oasis of tranquillity and reflection in the different garden spaces, ranging from an old Dutch square with willows, hydrangeas and hostas to a shade garden, shrub garden, moor garden, grasses garden, herb garden, rock garden, rose courtyard and Alhambra. Benches and secluded spots in pergolas, rose arches, greened arbours and arbour walks invite visitors to linger and enjoy the atmosphere. Water is an omnipresent element. Green windows in the tall hedges open up views out into the surrounding countryside. This multifaceted garden is an experimental site for architecture, plants and design materials and continues to develop over the years.
Kijktuinen Nunspeet is part of the European Garden Heritage Network. On their website you can find more detailed information about our different gardens.
At the bottom of the page there is a very small insight in the Kijktuinen Nunspeet park with the gardens, the nursery, the bare footpath & the (corn)mazes.
