And it is already a success. Last week, many art lovers, families and foodies visited the Weight of Water performance, the hot tubs and sauna, the workshop and the sunny terrace where it is great to eat and drink.
The Garden of Earthly Delights is therefore a festive beacon on the Zuid-Willemsvaart. Of course, because of the startling objects by Atelier van Lieshout, which lead to alienation from afar: the life-sized skull, the enormous black rat and the massive kettles in which and on which the chefs of La Cucina dell’ Inferno actually cook and taste.
But also by the large inland navigation vessel on which the Bosch Parade artists are bivouacked. And by the activity: here, on and near the water, people are working hard on the floating works of art; you can see the ninth Bosch Parade slowly take shape.
The Garden of Delights is open daily until 19 June from 13:00 to 23:00; on Thursday 16, Friday 17 and Saturday 18 June until 24:00. The entrance to the Garden of Delights is free until 15 June, during the Parade Days (16-19 June) there is an admission charge of € 6.50 (excluding booking fee).
EXPERIENCE BOSCH PARADE COMFORTABLY?
Of course, Bosch Parade remains open to everyone. Settle down in the grass on the banks of the Dommel, climb onto the quay walls and watch the spectacle pass by. But do you want to be sure of more comfort and the best view? Then reserve a seat on one of the four Bosch Parade terraces.
On such a terrace, you are guaranteed to sit princefully on your own chair on the water’s edge, protected by a Bosch Parade parasol. You can make exclusive use of the catering and sanitary facilities. And you get free access to the Garden of Earthly Delights. Moreover, you support the Bosch Parade, by enjoying it you help to make the colourful procession of art possible.
