Art in the Grachtentuin
During the third weekend of June, around 25 gardens from both private individuals and institutions open their doors to the public again. The theme for 2019 is Art in the Canal Garden.
In the past, the gardens behind the stately houses of the canal belt were mainly viewing gardens. For the resident who stayed at his country estate in the summer, but stayed in the city in the winter, the garden had to be a nice picture from the first floor. So it is not surprising that art also played a role in the design of the canal gardens
During the Open Garden Days, 2019 has seen three centuries of garden art from 18 e century images to contemporary art. It is the opportunity to enjoy the gardens and their artworks.
A portion of the proceeds from the Open Garden Days will go to the Grachtentuinen Fonds.
The private gardens are often only accessible through the house. Visitors walk through it ' as a guest '. Due to the vulnerability of the houses and gardens, dogs, prams, and wheelchairs are not allowed.
The gardens are not wheelchair accessible due to pavements and stairs.
Due to the vulnerability of some gardens, it can happen that a garden is temporarily full and that no new visitors can enter. Then take a closer look at the other gardens in the street and come back later for a visit. We thank you for your understanding!
