The Martenatuin is a large city park garden located behind and belonging to the Museum Martena that is worth a visit. The garden was changed around 1834 from a garden in formal French style into a landscape garden in the style of the 19th century landscape architect Roodbaard, who was possibly involved in the construction. The building is originally an old ‘Stins’ (stone defense tower), built in 1498. The garden has a rich Stinzenflora and is beautiful when the Bulbous Corydalis blossoms in huge amounts. The Wild tulip is also present. Summer Snowflakes and Common Lungwort are found in groups. The garden has recently been reconstructed to the 19th situation of the landscape garden.
