This monument is a gift from the Belgians to the Netherlands, to thank them for sheltering Beligan refugees during the First World War.

There is a beautifully landscaped garden, including planters on the facades and a fountain with multiple sprinklers. These also belong to the monument.

The development of the garden is adapted to suit the architecture around it, the atmosphere and character of the monument. The landscaper wanted an orderly garden to be united with a more natural one. This explains the combination of the straight garden paths with tight hedges, grass, heather and surrounding woods.
