Enjoying both sculpture and nature

Over 160 sculptures by iconic artists are dotted around the garden; from Aristide Maillol to Jean Dubuffet, from Marta Pan to Pierre Huyghe. The garden is also adorned by two pavilions, by Aldo van Eyck and by Gerrit Rietveld: architectural gems from the 1960s that were given a new home here.

The surroundings elicit pure enjoyment, of both sculpture and nature. Pleasantly sprawled in the grass, cosily picnicking together or running circuits; all this is possible in the sculpture garden.
