Huis Ten Bosch Hydrangea Festival features Japan’s largest number of 1,250 varieties of hydrangea and visitors can enjoy colourful hydrangea at several sites at the park.

At the Flower Square, visitors can enjoy food and drinks at the restaurant while watching a seasonal stage show, being surrounded by colourful hydrangea and early summer flowers. There is a rare kind of hydrangea called “Huis Ten Bosch” named after the park.
