’T VELUWS SAND SCULPTURES FESTIVAL AT THE SCULPTURE GARDEN IN GARDEREN
During the 2022 edition of ‘t Veluws Zandsculpturenfestijn you go back in time, the theme is “Our National Dutch History”.
The history lessons at school were either boring or very interesting; depending on whether the teacher could tell. You will never be bored during the exhibition in Garderen, because you are literally face to face with the hunebed builders, the Batavians and the Romans. Experience the history of the Netherlands during the Veluws Zandsculpturen Festijn! See how people lived and worked in the Middle Ages, how trade was conducted in Hanseatic cities and become part of the Iconoclasm yourself. In addition to sand sculptures, a beautiful garden has been laid out and there are many unique dioramas that depict our history in a surprising way.
FOR LEARNING AND FUN
In addition to the lifelike statues (made by the world’s best sculptors), it is also very educational. Join the puzzle and test your general knowledge: who was Willem van Oranje, what does VOC stand for, what did Christiaan Huygens invented and what did Erasmus actually do?

In short; too many to mention. An educational day for young and old. Make your day complete with a visit to the adjacent Sculpture Garden and lunchroom De Rozentuin, where people with disabilities serve you.
