The wonderful world of orchids
You can not believe your eyes in the tropical gardens of the
OrchideeŽn Hoeve. Some 2,500 species of orchids in various forms of
appearance are displayed standing and hanging in the glass house in
Luttelgeest. The village in the Noordoostpolder gained world wide fame
through the orchids. An ever increasing number of visitors from Holland
and abroad appreciate the 2,5 ha wide attraction.

This year the OrchideeŽn Hoeve has realised a new attraction: a Butterfly Valley spanning 1500 m2. In April 2008 this dazzling valley was opened by the Representative of the Queen in Friesland county: Drs. E. Nijpels. Thousands of butterflies freely roam the valley and across steep rock walls. Many colorful, blossoming plants supply the butterflies with nectar, numerous winding streams provide for their moisture, i.e. a special and renewing garden. Visit our website for a preview >
