Located in the surrounding fields are a number of so-called follies, which are smaller buildings with a wide variety of functions. These are located around Seventh and form a starting point for exploring the estate and experiencing the atmosphere and possibilities of Seventh. The different functions of the follies are as follows: three of them have a cultural function, three of them have a function for inhabitants and neighbors (tea house, herb garden and chapel) and the seventh has an informational function. They are all mutually connected by walking paths. These paths are in turn part of a network of walking paths at the New Estate Seventh. The integration of permanent or temporary art is possible around these follies. Altogether Seventh is an experience from and for everyone, with a high level of quality.
