Kasteel Wijlre estate offers several walking routes through its spectacular gardens. Every year, Kasteel Wijlre estate invites an artist, botanist, historian, architect or philosopher to develop a novel route through the garden. Each route tells its own story about the location.
Artist Oscar Lourens developed the Greyometer. With the help of a circle with a grayscale, the wanderer measures the different shades of grey in the garden, the buildings and the art works at the estate.
