Siertuin (Decorative Garden)
The garden has been in the Fairy Tale Forest since its inception in 1952. It was converted to a Japanese style garden in 1992. The garden contains a Koi pond with a sign that instructs you not to feed the fish. If you are lucky you may also see some frogs.
It contains a statue of the brothers Grimm which is a reproduction of a statue that can be found in Kassel Germany at the Brüder-Grimm-Platz where the brothers spent most of their lives.
It also contains a commemorative column which memorialises the three founders of the Efteling:
Anton Pieck -Romantic Illustrator who's creative hand gave the Efteling it's face
Peter Reynders - Photographer and Inventor who's inspired vision breathed life into the Efteling Fairy Tale.
R. J. TH Van Der Heijden - Mayor of Loon op Zand who's driving force ensured the foundation of the Efteling.
It also contains a statue of a young girl. This statue was gifted to the park in 1961 as a 10 year anniversary present. It is a symbol of the joy the Efteling had brought to over four million children.
The statue was designed by Anton Pieck.
The garden can be found at the end of the official Fairy Tale Forest Route, accross from the Chinese Nightingale.
