Open Gardens Days

16th June - 18th June

This is your unique chance to see the hidden treasures of Amsterdam. During Open Garden Days, the canal houses open their properties for you to see their hidden gardens.

You can admire a whopping thirty classical or modern designed gardens with very old trees and rare plants. Former residents used this places to escape the bustle of the city and ‘soak up’ some green. The gardens therefore had to look stunning and art was one of the ways to finish this picture. Thanks to Amsterdam's stringent laws, most gardens were spared over the centuries and now they give us an impression of four centuries of history.

Through a route that begins near the Albus, you walk along the beautiful canals and visit the gardens.
