Kasteeltuinen Arcen

Kasteeltuinen Arcen
2nd Prize

Arcen Castle dates from the 17th century. The original garden had a division of sixteen rectangles. Ten of these areas, each with a different theme, were reinstated. The rosarium, surrounded by a pergola, includes more than 250 species and many perennials and shrubs.

There is also a lovely woodland garden with blooming azaleas, violets, fritillaria and astilbes. Little streams and waterfalls flow beneath blooming cherry trees. Visitors are also attracted by the Asian gardens with a Thai fishing hut and miniature rice field terraces or the rhododendron garden.

In the water and sculpture garden seven ponds at different levels function as mirrors reflecting monumental trees, the art objects and the sky.

Kasteeltuinen Arcen, now owned by the foundation Het Limburgs Landschap is a charming ensemble offering a wide range of experiences, inspiration and relaxation, but also various events that have found an increasing and enthusiastic clientele over the years.
