Open Garden Days 2016
During the Open Garden Days, 30 locations, both private and institutional, open their gardens to the public.

Behind the facades of Foam lies a charming city garden, which usually remains hidden from visitors and passers-by. In the garden you will find ferns, rose bushes, plum trees, hydrangeas and more.

Within the building, you can view the current exhibition Helmut Newton - A Retrospective. The exhibition features in excess of 200 photographs, ranging from early prints that rarely go on display to monumental photos by the legendary German photographer Newton and can be seen in the entire building on the Keizersgracht. Foam Cafe serves delicious coffee, tea and a variety of sweets.

On the Amsterdam canals, between Brouwersgracht and Amstel, a selection of the most beautiful gardens will open their doors to the public. Majestic old trees, rare plants, beautiful garden houses and both classic and modern gardens can be seen in the private plots, which are rarely accessible to the public.

The entrance for the Open Garden Days at Foam can be found at Keizersgracht 613.
