Support us!

The corona crisis affects us all. De Hortus earns the main part of its income from its visitors; from entrance tickets, a cup of coffee or lunch in the Orangery, participation in workshops or from renting out rooms. With a closure all this will disappear.

Your support will help us through this time and for that we are very grateful!
