Open Gardens

Gardening enthusiasts will be spoiled for choice with three beautiful open gardens during the Spring season. These gardens will be open daily, not only during the festival period, but from early August already when the Crab Apple and azaleas start blooming.  Not only are the gardens amazing, Haenertsburg Village and surrounds transforms into one huge colorful garden with crab apple, azalea and flowering cherry trees scattered through the village.  The spring weather is pleasant and warm and visitors can wander through the streets where a selection of restaurants, coffee shops and pubs invites them to sit for a while.  Browse through gift and other shops for unusual and interesting gifts and items.
