Arboretum Wespelaar is OPEN again on Wednesdays and Sundays from 10am to 5pm, until Wednesday, November 13th. Groups are also welcome on other days on request (with guide). For more practical informations, please go to "Contact and visits".

Autumn has started. You can smell it, feel it and see it at Arboretum Wespelaar. Acer rubrum, Acer saccharum and Liquidambar styraciflua ‘Lane Roberts’ have beautiful colours in different shades of red. The many fruits are also providing beautiful colour contrasts, such as the composed fruit of Magnolia and their seeds covered in an orange pulpy coating, or the red-pinkish fruits of Euonymus hamiltonianus subsp. sieboldianus (plot 285, Werner Wood). The black-blue fruits of Chionanthus retusus contrast beautifully with the colour of the leaves (plot 182, Vijverbos).

This leaflet will guide you around in the Arboretum (also available at the reception).
