Please note: sculpture garden Clingenbosch has a different address than museum Voorlinden and can only be visited under supervision of a guide.
From May to October, the sculpture garden can be visited on Thursday afternoons from 15.00 to 18.00 hours under the guidance of one of our competent guides. After a short introduction, a walk of more than two hours will take you past more than sixty sculptures. We end the afternoon with a snack and a drink. Attention: this is an intensive walk on mostly unpaved paths. The sculpture garden is therefore not suitable for visitors with a walker or wheelchair. We also advise against participation by people with walking difficulties.

The sculpture garden was opened to visitors in 1995. Years of preparation with artists, curators and gardeners preceded this. Various artists, including the English sculptor Antony Gormley and the Dutch artist Armando, were approached to make a sculpture.
The 25-hectare estate offers a varied landscape. The works of art have been integrated into nature as much as possible, thus optimally reflecting the various facets of the forest. The locations of the sculptures have often been determined in consultation with the artists. Over the years, the sculpture garden has expanded further with new acquisitions, which have often been commissioned. For example, the Flemish artist Berlinde De Bruyckere created her first permanent outdoor sculpture for sculpture garden Clingenbosch.
