Arboretum Wespelaar is now OPEN on Wednesdays and Sundays from 10am to 5pm (you can exit the Arboretum until 6pm through the parking), until November 15th, 2017, included. Groups are also welcome on other days on request (with guide). For more practical informations, please go to "Contact and visits".

The purple round flower heads of the Alliums create a playful and colorful effect in the inner courtyard. You can find a perennial plant list, sorted by number, at the reception for 1€. Thankfully, not all Wisterias suffered from the frost and you will still be able to see some elegant flowers. The Rhododendrons, which you can find in different areas of the Arboretum, are doing great for the moment. In the Marnef Wood for exemplare, you will find many flowering Rhododendrons of the Pentanthera section (Azaleas). In plot 126, three of these are flowering close to one another: Rhododendron austrinum, Rhododendron prinophyllum and Rhododendron periclymenoides. In plots 152 and 167, you will find a small but wonderfully scented Magnolia laevifolia. Some plants are recovering quickly from the frost and have new and fresh shoots. 

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

Arboretum Wespelaar is looking for motivated and dynamic trainees to join the team for a short or longer period. If you are interested, please email your curriculum and motivation letter to
