You’ll find this gem on that tiny back road between Oirsbeek and Schinnen… a beautiful old brick home set back from the street on a quaint garden lot.
Open: Seasonally. Sundays and Wednesdays 1300-1700 from 14 May to 14 September. Also open for the Limburg Fleuregio on Saturday 14 June 1300-1700 and 19 June 1800-2200. Groups may attend on other days by appointment.
At 1400 on open days, an herbist will give a short tour and herb talk.
Cost: 2 Euros. Children are free with adult.
** Alice Olivers, the owner of the Lijsterhof does not speak a lot of English, so while you will certainly enjoy her gardens, her classes may be difficult. Her sister, Anke Knibbeler; however, if given advance notice, will attend and translate the classes for a group of English speakers. So, if you have a small group that would like to attend, do sign up and let them know and they will do their best to accommodate you. Very nice people.
All workshops run from 1300 until 1630. Each class costs 20 Euros. Register quickly to reserve your place.
