A great deal of the work at Huygens’ Hofwijck is carried out by volunteers. Guides, hosts and hostesses and garden volunteers receive the guests and keep the estate in tip-top condition.

Are you a cultural history enthusiast and do you enjoy meeting people? Do you have green fingers and are you itching to work in a historic garden? Or maybe you like DIY and odd jobs? Then you may be just the person we are looking for! Give us a call or send us an email.
