Doornburgh is a creative outdoor space for art and science. The historic Buitenplaats Doornburgh aan de Vecht has been around since the 17th century. The special, modern monastery building (in Bossche School style) was added in the 1960s.

Doornburgh has presentation and exhibition options, an artist and scientist-in-residence program (in the rooms where the sisters used to live), project and meeting rooms, and a top restaurant - Restaurant DeZusters. During the opening days of Doornburgh, the priory is open for coffee and lunch. When the weather is nice, go for a drink on the picnic terrace on the Vecht.

Park
The park of Buitenplaats Doornburgh has undergone several changes over the centuries. The disappearance of three adjacent country estates has increased the park from 0.85 hectares to over 9 hectares. At the beginning of the 19th century, the park was designed as an English landscape garden by landscape architect J.D. Zocher. The garden of Buitenplaats Doornburgh still has this style.

Stinzen plants grow there: special spring flowers that mainly occur in castles and country estates. There are also many birds to see. Get a coffee to go at the restaurant DeZusters on Doornburgh and walk through the beautiful park.

Guided tours of the park are organized regularly.
