Van Eyck-arrangement – 60 € per logies (ONLY DUTCH SPEAKING)
In onze tuin hebben we alle 76 planten die door Van Eyck op het Lam Gods zijn geschilderd.
Vergeet even wat je weet over planten: we verplaatsen ons naar de 15deeeuw en je verneemt hoe Van Eyck er toe komt om op zijn altaarstuk al die planten neer te zetten en wat de betekenis ervan is.
We houden halt bij een hele reeks planten en vertellen verhaaltjes die ermee in verband staan.
Na de wandeling nemen we een aperitief of koffie met taart, met een “Van Eyck”-planten accent en praten we nog wat na.
(Enkel mei tot en met september)
You will also receive a copy of the book “In Search of Paradise: Flora on the Ghent Alterpiece” by Hilde van Crombrugge and Paul Van den Bremt in which all the plants are described..In principle, we start the walk (about 1h30) after breakfast on the day after arrival, but by mutual agreement, it can also be done at another time during the stay.
Guided cycle tour Around and Through Ghent – € 50 per person
You would like to see Ghent as tourists never do: together we will see how Ghent has grown, how it has entered the 21st century and what lies ahead: we will cycle through the 19th and 20th century belt around Ghent and through the historic centre. Somewhere along the 30 km trip, we will have a coffee stop and a picnic in a beautiful location. We will leave after breakfast and finish at the Friday market.
