Arrangements in the Hortus

With an area of more than 20 hectares, the Hortus Haren offers plenty of room for groups. The Hortus has two restaurants, Grand Café De Plantage and the Chinese Teahouse “the Cry of the Dragon”. If you have something to celebrate or are organizing a meeting, the Hortus  offers several possibilities. In addition to renting halls, we can arrange catering for lunch, dinner or a buffet. In the Chinese Teahouse, set in the beautiful Chinese Garden,  you can book a complete package for a reception, wedding, party, meeting or workshop. The teahouse can accommodate up to 120 people.
