Small but interesting botanical garden with a lovely palm house. It made a change from walking on city streets to having some greenery around. The cafe is particularly good with an interesting selection of light lunches. Very enjoyable.

We held a drinks reception in the Hortus Botanicus campus and garden. A true town oasis steeped in history and a great sanctuary of calm. Really enjoyed this place and will come back to spend time in the huge biome.

In the centre of Amsterdam, there is an equivalent for Royal Botanical Garden of UK and Singapore..a common sight in all British ruled Commonwealth countries. Hortus Botanicus sounds like a Latin Nomenclature, but truly British Style collection of plants from world wide. I was happy...More

In the middle of amsterdam you find one of the oldest and cutest botanical gardens in the world. Squeezed in between a canal and some houses you find this little area with little glass houses, little paths and a restaurant. One little glasshouse hosts butterflies:...More

We had visited all the places on our list for the day and were heading on a walk towards the zoo when we spotted the gardens. It was hot and the zoo was along way off so we decided that botanical gardens would be nicer....More

We visited the Hortus Botanicus on a Sunday, and spent several hours strolling around. The garden is not very big, but the layout is well planned and absolutely gorgeous. We especially enjoyed the green house with different climatic rooms. A relaxing and interesting day.

Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of
tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists
and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the
best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe.
Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops
of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones
Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods
such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring

All year round, they have the palm trees and butterflies under cover but a significant part of the gardens are outside so if you are coming back in spring or summer then I'd wait until then. Especially as the entrance fee is... More
