Kalmthout Arboretum is a wonderful and stunning place with a history that goes back more than 150 years. A walk through this arboretum that stretches out over 12 hectares is a real journey of discovery in the plant world. You can’t fail to be delighted by the multitude of bright flowerbeds in the colour gardens, the heady scents of the rose garden and the host of butterflies and insects in the butterfly garden. The blossoms of the magnolias and cherry trees herald the joys of springtime, while the maple trees are at their best in the autumn. More than 7,000 different plant species from all four corners of the world guarantee you one of the most beautiful settings in which to enjoy some exceptional nature walks!
After the visit you can relax in the cafeteria with garden terrace and its regional beers. Interesting bookshop with a wide variety of books and gifts and plant centre with specific garden plants. Expansion of the garden ready to open spring 2016.
