Country estate

The Hofwijck country estate was the brainchild of Constantijn Huygens (1596-1687). Constantijn was a poet, musician, art lover and secretary to the princes of Orange. He used Hofwijck as a retreat from his busy life at Court in The Hague. The house and garden were designed by Constantijn Huygens in 1641.
