Garden tour

If you are interested in the history of the Dutch garden and you enjoy visiting special parks and gardens, then a visit to Hofwijck is not to be missed! The garden of the Hofwijck estate is the only garden in the Netherlands to have been designed in the shape of the human body. The design was conceived by Constantijn Huygens in 1641 and inspired by the Roman architect Vitruvius who lived in the first century BC. Please contact us for information about our special guided tour of the garden.
