once a year
in the 3rd weekend of June
June 15-17, 2018
On the Amsterdam canals, between Brouwersgracht and Amstel, a selection of the most beautiful gardens will open their doors to the public during Open Tuinen Dagen (Open Garden Days).
Behind the facades often lies a charming city garden, which usually remains hidden from visitors and passers-by.
Majestic old trees, rare plants, beautiful garden houses and both classic and modern gardens can be seen in the private plots, which are rarely accessible to the public.
The gardens behind the stately homes along the Amsterdam canals were used mainly to enjoy in winter time, when the families resided in the city rather than at their summer estates.
