Take a bag with what you need and follow the discovery trail through more than 275 hectares of woodland. Wander through the history of the estate while you listen to the stories the trees in the woods have to tell. Carry out the tasks on the gnomes’ path and make off with a certificate of 'gnome of the forest'.

Or maybe you’d rather relax amid the greenery? Make your own way along the 36 km of walking tracks. Half of these tracks are surfaced, so you can easily get into the woods with a wheelchair or pushchair. And if you have a valid fishing permit, you can cast a line from the banks of one of the three fishing lakes.

You’ll find the answer to all your questions about woods and trees at the forest information centre. Go looking for answers in the ‘explanation’ room, visit the permanent and temporary displays, ask at the information desk or watch a multimedia presentation.
The arboretum is internationally renowned for its genera of Magnolia, Viburnum, Rhododendron and Camellia. The overall collection features over 8 000 species and varieties of trees, bushes and shrubs. Visit the reception pavilion and find out everything there is to know about the way arboretums work in general and the one at Het Leen in particular.
