One of my favourite places

Colour, peace, cool and shady places. Avoid fridays and Saturdays as this is a favourite place for wedding photos.

Very pretty when in season but the actual Japanese garden is small compared to the walk to it. Still a nice walk.

I took some of my wedding shots here. The flowers blossomed beautifully and the burst of colours brighten up the place. It was quite crowded though as it is not open throughout the year but only during selected times. It was quite fortunate that it was open when I was in Netherlands.

This century old garden is a jewel. It has been designer by the baronesse Van Grieken after a trip to Japan. It has been laid out like a labyrint, walking towards a center by twisting lanes. The center is for the tea ceremony.

This is an amazing garden. The variety in plants is amazing and if you are here on a (sometimes rare) moment that's a little less busy, it can be a breathtaking place to relax. If you have a chance to go here, don't hesitate.

the best preserved Japanese looking public garden of the Netherlands. It's packed with all kinds of Japanese garden elements..therefore, it feels a bit too busy.. but absolutely enjoyable! It's open two times a year, be sure to check the website for opening times and saturday events

This is a gorgeous park that is usually only open at certain months of the year. Families, couples, people with dogs etc love it and if you`re a fan of photography it`s a great place to practice or try out your gear. Beautiful colours!
