On the way from Belgium up to the Netherlands by chance, we found Arcen Limburg with a castle in the most beautiful setting. Our Beagle Vlou needed a walk anyway. No problem to explore the Arcen Castle Gardens with a dog as the Dutch are most dog-friendly people.
The weather was good when we discovered one of the most beautiful gardens we’d ever seen. Arcen Castle surrounded by magnificent trees, gorgeous flower gardens and peaceful ponds with waterlilies and fountains.
Marked as the Arcen Castle Gardens on google maps about ten kilometers north of Venlo on the N271 lies Arcen Limburg.
The Arcen Castle Gardens open at the end of March and close in the beginning of November. A variaty of theme gardens and green houses with plants flowering in different seasons make Arcen Park interesting for all the seasons during opening season. Our personal favorite is June, when most of the roses are in bloom.
Beautiful little towns like Venlo or Roermond invite to stay over in a Hotel, Zuid Limburg B&B or self-catering accommodation while you enjoy the Dutch lifestyle. Choose your Hotel with Booking.com (NL) or be smart with Vacation Rentals Starting at $55/night. Book the whole house!
No weather to bad that the Dutch take their bicycle to any desired place. Maybe you want to do it the same way and take one of the bicycle roundtrips to the Arcen Castle Gardens.
