Fundings for the Garden of the Holy Spirit
The start for the building of this Garden and it's surrounding buildings was in 1627 when Frederik Hendrik supplied the funds for the building of it. It consisted out of 12 houses for the poor, five of the houses already excisted since 1496 and where old men houses they have stair frontages. Like you also can find along the chanels of Amsterdam. A chapel was included in this too.
The garden came under the authority of the City of Naaldwijk in 1955. It is now used as a wedding facility and has place for 75 persons
It's can be an ideal historical place to get married. More information for this you can get from the City of Naaldwijk.

There are a lot of greenhouses overhere, although there is a lot of construction at this moment. But at some places you can still see the old greenhouses where they use to grow grapes and melons. On this picture you see a normal greenhouse, but its also a lovely sight of the beaten path.
There is a lot to see when you are walking trough Naaldwijk Or rent a bike. For example 'Prinsenbos'.
This place is a big water (well not that big) where you can lay in the sun in the summer, skate in the winter and walk with or without your dog in spring and autum.
When you walk around you have to look in the hight now and than. Because a lot of beautiful things are in the hight. This banner is from the church in the middle of Naaldwijk.
Maybe you wil miss you television????? I never miss it when i am on holidays. But this pictures shows the antenna from the televisionservice in Naaldwijk
You can see it a long way before you are in Naaldwijk There are not a lot of high buildings in this town. Only one and thats from the Flowerauction.
There is a lot to see, i already told you that. I went to the anwb-office for a walktour, but they only have one that is not telling you what you see. So thats not a lot of help is it! This is a nice mushroomtree....
This picture is take in the Prinsenbos. I think its a nice picture showing you how nice Authum can be if you pay attention to your surroundings.
On the top of the tower is this lion. He shows from which side the wind is coming. So this is one of the best tips: When you walk through Naaldwijk....DONT FOTGET TO LOOK UP !!!
