The Flemish-Italian Renaissance garden of the Rubens House was reconstructed as faithfully as possible.
Besides a place for relaxation and family strolls, the garden was also a place for the cultivation of flowers and fruits. The present flowerbeds were planted with items that were also known in Rubens’ day. The garden pavilion, which takes centre stage, was designed by Rubens himself.
During the restoration that took place in the 1940's, the garden of the Rubens House was completely re-laid.
