The Exhibition

'The Enchanted Garden' will again open its gates and invite the visitor on a journey of mysteries and wonders, transformations and metamorphoses.

This large and natural garden, situated just near the ‘border’ between the French and the Flemish part of Belgium, hosts a most special International Art Exhibition: It is eclectic, with a multitude of expressions in spirit and form – amazing and beautiful, fun and burlesque, poetic, thoughtful, meditative …

Art Inspired by, and in Dialogue With, Nature.

About sixty artists from Belgium, Deutschland, France, Indonesia, Nederland, and Norway present works in bronze, ceramic, composite, glass, metal, stone, wood, and also expressing themselves in literature and music.

Focus in 2021

This year we celebrate the tenth anniversary of the International Art Exhibition 'The Enchanting Garden' (2011-2021). We welcome all the artists who have made this exhibition enchanting during the previous years.

Some thirty artists exhibit for the first time. About half of the artists are from Nederland, but also ten from France! Glass works will colour the light in the garden. They are presented by nearly twenty artists.

Practical information

The Enchanted Garden' opens on Friday 25th of June and closes on Sunday 26th of September 2021. You can visit the exhibition every Friday, Saturday, Sunday and public holiday between 13:00 and 20:00.

The Enchanted Garden' is located in Jodoigne, halfway between Brussels and Liège, within walking distance of the 'Vlaamse Toontuinen' in Hoegaarden, near Tienen and 4 km from the E40 motorway. We are situated along the 'Ravel', the cycling path that connects Tienen with Jodoigne and Namur, between cycling junctions 59 and 60.
