Every year in the third weekend of June the Amsterdam Open Garden Days are held. Some thirty most private canal gardens will be open to the public. The gardens, hidden behind the stately facades and canals of Amsterdam, are true oases of peace and greenery. Many of them designed by renowned architects. If one looks behind the impressive canal side homes one steps into a completely different world.
Each year the Open Garden Days are being organised around a theme. The gardens will be open all three days from 10 am to 5 pm. There is no need to make reservations. Tickets can be purchased at selected gardens e.g the Museum Van Loon, Keizersgracht 672.
Your pass-partout grants you access to all the participating gardens, is valid fo 3 days and states all garden addresses with a short description. All gardens can be reached by foot. But it’s also possible to take boat to some of the venues.
