You can see the biggest clog in the Southern Hemisphere! Created by local, internationally renowned chainsaw artist, Robby Bast. Visitors can sit inside and have their photo taken.

Enjoy traditional Dutch fare with a range of market stalls.

See traditional Dutch wood carving and tools.

This weekend you can discover more than a million spring flowering bulbs on show, including over half a million Tulips. As you stroll through the historic gardens you can enjoy the sculpture exhibit, pat the alpacas, indulge in traditional Dutch foods and other treats. Visit our Clog shop, find treasures in the souvenir and market stalls. See beautiful garden displays, visit our fairy garden, hunt for fairies, pick a bunch of tulips, play some old fashioned Dutch games and see historical displays. Plenty of photo opportunities abound with Windmills, flowers and staff in traditional Dutch costume.
