Open Garden Days 2018
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 can find ferns, rose bushes, plum trees, hydrangeas and more.
