Gnomesville is an a community of thousands of garden gnomes that have been placed in a scenic and wooded area, creating a quirky and enchanting spectacle.

Do you also want to add a gnome? Visitors from around the world contribute to the collection by bringing or leaving their own gnomes, creating an ever-growing population.

The origins of Gnomesville are a bit mysterious, but it is believed to have started in the 1990s when a gnome was left in the area as a protest against the construction of a roundabout. Since then, the gnome population has multiplied, and Gnomesville has become a popular attraction. Nowadays in Gnomesville live several thousands of gnomes.
