Description

Dordwijk was built around 1635 as a country estate for wealthy city dwellers who wanted to get away from their noisy urban surroundings for a while. In the 19th century the garden architect Zocher Jr. redesigned the park along the lines of the English landscape style. In the Victorian Kitchen Garden old fruit and vegetable varieties and herbs are grown according to traditional methods. The estate was for some time a protected nature reserve, inaccessible to the public, but groups may now tour the park with a guide.
