The Hortus Botanicus Amsterdam is one of the oldest botanical gardens in the world. More than 4,000 species of plants grow in the gardens and greenhouses. The Hortus is situated in the ‘Plantage’-neighborhood, at the edge of the hectic heart of Amsterdam.
However, behind the 300 year old entry gate, it’s like the city keeps her breath. Enjoy the ever changing garden, greenhouses with butterflies and cacti, the monumental palmtree greenhouse and the impressive ThreeClimatesGreenhouse. Visit the surprising museum shop and a delicious biological lunch or drink in the ‘Oranjerie’ completes a visit to the Hortus Botanicus Amsterdam.
