Humlemagasinet (the hop store) has more than 20 themed gardens in parks covering 10 acres of land in the beautiful scenery of western Funen. 

At the start of the 1990s, Humlemagasinet changed from being a hops wholesaler into a cultural centre with a gallery and historical exhibitions. At the same time, new gardens began to be created, and today you can find 20 different themed gardens.

The first new gardens were related to the history of the place, and consisted of a hop garden with 42 hop vines and an apple orchard with more than 30 different Funian apple types. Inspiration was gained from visits to many of the famous English gardens, and in 2004, the entire area was transformed into a park with 3 central avenues surrounded by gardens. A lake was dug, and the earth from the excavation was used to make a hillock to the east, affording a great view of the gardens and the town of Harndrup.

Some of the themed gardens are found in enclosed garden sections, but the gardens are also characterised by the open avenues and dispersed beds with trees, bushes and flowers. The gardens can be admired everywhere from tables and benches.

In addition to the gardens we have already mentioned, they include the Princess Marie garden, the English Cottage garden, the Rhododendron garden, the Sunken garden, the Farmer’s garden and farm, the Highgrove arch, the English rose garden, the Sundial garden with more than 1,000 dahlias, the Lavender garden, the Queen Ingrid garden, Stenhøj and the Agave garden. A folly has been erected by the lake.
