Inspirock Rating:
3.8/5 based on 650+ reviews on the web
Originally founded in 1638, Hortus Botanicus Amsterdam hosts rare and exotic plants in one of the oldest facilities of its kind in the world. After falling on hard times during the latter half of the 20th century, the garden rebounded to become one of Amsterdam's most popular tourist sites. Wander the themed pathways through the collection of over 6,000 resident plants, including a large cycad collection and several specimens hundreds of years old. You'll see some of the same plants, such as coffee and palms, which helped the Dutch East India Company spur its respective industries in South America and the East Indies. Afterward stop for a bite at the terraced cafe, which offers coffee and snacks.

  • In the Northwest of the State Hermitage Museum. Flies too wide, bloom a beautiful flower garden, the Butterfly Conservatory and the heart is healed.

  • This is a botanical garden located near the Zoo. Because of the unusual plants and flowers-and went to a special change or did not see something unusual. But is it not very individual to carefully observe the was because time is short and stood at.

  • You have several parts, several greenhouses, several atmospheres. I advise you to take your time and wander in this place according to your desires. We were there in winter, but in the spring it should be even more beautiful with all the Tulips in bloom!

  • Great place to spend a stormy day in Amsterdam. Cafe is really good. Try the vegetarian burger! Very green and interesting botanical species. The carnivores ones the most interesting after a puff of 420.
  • I love going to this place! The gardens are kept up beautifully and staff is very friendly and informative. The on-site restaurant is nice as well, and a great location for lunch and such. It's a little ways away from the city center, but definitely worth the walk.
  • Cheap enough entry. Plenty of things to keep plant-lovers happy. Not the biggest botanical garden I've ever been to, but still lovely nonetheless.
  • Beautiful garden, very peaceful. A good way to spend a couple of hours.
  • Tranquility in the city center. Lovely break away from the noise and pollution of the city centre.
