Children’s activities, with quide

Experience the Hortus

The guide accompanies the children in the garden and lets them see, hear, smell and experience everything. This can vary from the Chinese garden (Chinese garden) to the apiary(Bijenstal), from birds and frogs to koi carp (brightly coloured fish) and trees. The walk is interspersed with surprising assignments for the children.
The tour lasts for 1-2 hours, and is suitable for children from 4 to 12 years.

Chinese Garden

During the excursion the secrets of the Chinese garden (Chinese garden) are revealed. The bingo game is a search into the details of typical Chinese architecture and design, a playful, amazing experience where the children can imagine they are in China.
This activity last one hour, and is suitable for children from 7 to 12 years.

In the apiary

The children are met in the apiary and get to see everything about the life of bees and the work of a bee-keeper. They can see the bees in the hive, look for the queen bee, and much more – everything there is to know about bees.
This activity lasts one hour, and is suitable for children from 4 to 12 years.
The fun can also be increased by letting the children mess around with pencil and paper on the bee theme.

Gnome country

With a gnome’s cap on, you can become a gnome and look, smell and think like a gnome. Through games and stories, the “gnomes” learn about nature in the Hortus.
Age group: 4-6 years.


The Hortus is the home for thousands of insects in the air, on the ground and in the water. Come and look for them! The children learn where they can be found, what they are, and what they do. A fantastic world opens up for them. A swimming diploma is required.
Age group: 5-12 years.

Keltische Tuin

Get to know the Celts! We pull on a Celt jacket and walk through the Celtic garden (Keltische tuin) and ask: What did nature mean for them; What did they learn from the sunlight, the different colours of the sky and the glow of the moon? How did a civilization, long before our time, view this and “the other world”?
Age group: from 7 years
