The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Centrum
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 hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.

Relaxing garden in Amsterdam
Aug 2021 • Solo
The garden is nice and quiet.
I visited it during summer, so I saw some flowers but it’s probably more beautiful during spring.
The South Africa greenhouse is very nice and interesting to explore.
I expected to see something more in the butterfly greenhouse, while it was quite small and there were only two butterflies’ species to see.
Many plants and flowers are quite common in Mediterranean countries, nevertheless the garden is very relaxing and it’s the right place to go to escape from the city centre.

Amazing Garden!
Nov 2019
Absolutely amazing garden in such a busy megapolis!
Even if you're not a fan of botanica, you will enjoy the place with beautiful plants, flowers, small cozy parks, and garden areas.
We didn't find any intersting orchirds here, but the variety of other spiecies is impressive.
Do bring your children to this place - they will enjoy and have fun, have a chance to walk surrounded by big colorful butterflies!

Day out
Oct 2019 • Solo
Hortus Botanicus was a fun day out. There's lots to see, I especially enjoyed the butterflies. I visited during the autumn time but I think it would be lovely to see during springtime!

Quiet and relaxing place
Aug 2020 • Couples
One of the world’s oldest botanical gardens (17th century!). Many interesting plants, useveral greenhouses, and even butterflies pavilion (unfortunately, temporarily closed). Several routes that guide you through the most interesting objects. No tickets reservation necessary.

Very beautiful botanical garden. We really enjoyed it, you have different rooms with different species and temperatures, such as cactuses, tropical plants, etc...

Cute couples day out
Aug 2020
Went here with my boyfriend and we both loved it! For the price we paid it was definitely worth it (they do student discounts!), and even though we arrived about an hour and a half before closing, we felt it was just enough time to see everything and take some lovely photos. Nice activity to do on a sunny day, especially if you plan on spending some time wandering around in the outdoor gardens.

Too much to handle
Jul 2020 • Couples
Probably a very special place if you are a plant and vegetation freak. For me, as average Joe too much to handle and too little garden feel.

Peaceful place
Jul 2020 • Friends
Very peaceful well maintained botanical garden. I am a big fan of botanical gardens, so this was easy. I have to admit that the restaurant/café is well blended with the garden. The coffee was okay.

Cute Experience
Mar 2020 • Couples
It was a very cute experience! And one of the only places open due to coronavirus when I visited. The indoor botanical garden was phenomenal and the outdoor plants were cute.
