I was there during the winter so I mainly saw just the glasshouses but it was really nice, maintained well and very big. Has bits of colonial history.

The botanical gardens are a beautiful and relaxing break from the bustling world around. Perfect to take a mental break.

Plantage & the East
The eastern edge of central Amsterdam provides
visitors with the chance to imagine the city that
Rembrandt called home (and to tour his historic house)
while shopping like the thriftiest of locals at
Waterlooplein’s massive flea market, or even enjoying
a craft beer beside the tallest wooden windmill in The
Netherlands. This verdant, serene, and stately part of
town is home to Artis Royal Zoo, one of Europe’s

first of all, apologies for this late reply. A visit to the hortus should take a good hour /hour-and-a-half for a relaxed walk through our garden and greenhouses.
