Program

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 around 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.

History

In 1995 the sculpture garden, located on an estate of about 25 hectares, was opened to the public. Various artists were invited to make a site-specific sculpture, like the British artist Antony Gormley and the Dutch artist Armando. Our goal is to emphasise the different aspects of the landscape and to integrate the sculptures as much as possible. The location of the artworks is often determined in dialogue with the artists. Throughout the years, the sculpture collection has been constantly growing. For example, Berlinde De Bruyckere realised her first outdoor sculpture as a commission of the collection.
