Come and enjoy springtime at Arboretum Wespelaar ! 

Arboretum Wespelaar is OPEN again on Wednesdays and Sundays from 10am to 5pm, until Wednesday, November 13th. Groups are also welcome on other days on request (with guide). For more practical informations, please go to "Contact and visits".

Most of the Magnolias have already flowered, but thankfully there are still some interesting species which flower later. For example, Magnolia fraseri with its slender yellow erect flowers or the small Magnolia laevifolia with its delicious perfume. Rhododendrons are flowering now with colours ranging from purple, pink, white, yellow to red. Crab apples have taken over from cherry trees. The different shades of green from the young leaves are also wonderful and worth a stop. The beautiful Wisterias on the inner courtyard are flowering too.

This leaflet will guide you around in the Arboretum (also available at the reception).
