#SumCapTip – Miniature Landscapes
Just outside Nijmegen, in Beek-Ubbergen, you can see miniature landscapes at the “Vereniging Nederlands Cultuurlandschap” museum.
Walk through a green tunnel hedge and explore the south west of England – also known as the “garden of Europe”. Then go through a gate to discover another ten miniature landscapes, depicting typical Dutch landscapes that you can still see today. They’re just as beautiful as those of many other countries and they’re even more varied.
From Texel to South Limburg, Brabant to Friesland. Go and check it out!
