Next April 26th the European Route of Historic Gardens (ERHG) celebrates the 1st European Day of Historic Gardens, an invitation to discover the rich and diverse heritage that our gardens represent.

The celebration coincides with the third anniversary of the ERHG, the date when a few European historic gardens decided to pool their resources in benefit of the historic gardens value. Today, the European Route of Historic Gardens (ERHG) counts with the participation of 33 garden members of six countries and with the advice of twelve prestigious researchers and professionals as members of its scientific committee.

Virtual activities to enjoy our gardens

This year’s European Day of Historic Gardens celebration is a very especial one. The present circumstances do not allow us to visit our gardens, but the European Route of Historic Gardens (ERHG) still wants to devote this day to honour them.

On April 26th, we celebrate the European Day of Historic Gardens by sharing with you the different programs of activities organized by the garden members like virtual visits, virtual activities, photo galleries or special videos so that you can enjoy them.

We want you to get closer to the purpose of our association and to the meaning that historic gardens have for all. On April 26th we invite you to find out the Celebration Program on our website

The European Route of Historic Gardens (ERHG) also encourages all individuals and organizations who love, enjoy and appreciate the historic gardens to join this celebration by sharing their memories, pictures or videos from any of the gardens that they know on our social media under #EuropeanDayHistoricGardens.

Our mission: Protect and promote the historic gardens

The European Route of Historic Gardens (ERHG) is a non-profit association whose members are European historic gardens and institutions that share the common interest of protecting and promoting the historic gardens heritage. The ERHG is engaged in contributing to the sustainable development of the territories where historic gardens are located by generating a high-quality cultural and tourist offering.

European memory, history and heritage

Historic gardens are a great heritage that explains our identity and history and the mutual exchanges that shape our cultural diversity. They are part of our memories, magical spaces of inspiration, meeting places, oases in our cities… They are assets that we appreciate these days even more than before. By celebrating the European Day of Historic Gardens, we enhance the knowledge and appreciation of our historic gardens as part of our European memory, history and heritage.
