Every year, the Museum Van Loon organizes the Open Garden Days on the third weekend of June. During this weekend, a hidden part of Amsterdam becomes visible as more than 25 canal house gardens are opened to the public. Generally, the most beautiful gardens of Amsterdam are all hidden behind the huge canal houses all year, but during the Amsterdam Open Garden Days you are allowed to roam freely.
- Discover the gardens that are not usually accessible to the public.
- A wonderful way to get to know Amsterdam.
- The perfect opportunity to see many designs by famous garden architects in a single day.
The Gardens of Amsterdam
At the moment of the construction of the canals, not only stately houses and flowering gardens were developed, but also spectacular garden houses, picturesque gazebos and carriage houses. The inhabitants could relish in drinking tea, playing games and enjoying the greenery. There are many historic garden houses that can be admired, but there are also interesting examples of more recent times.
