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.
Some of the sculptures in the sculpture garden are covered during the winter months (1 November until 1 April). This includes aomongst others Jardin d'émail by Jean Dubuffet, Floating sculpture, Otterlo by Marta Pan and Needle Tower van Kenneth Snelson.
Ticks occur wherever there is ground-level vegetation in the Netherlands, so that includes De Hoge Veluwe National Park and the sculpture garden. A tick bite is usually harmless, but can cause Lyme disease in some cases. Check yourself for tick bites after your ‘nature excursion’. If you have been bitten, remove the tick without delay.
