Relaxing relief
May 2021 • Friends
A wonderful, relaxing break from covid as this place opened its doors again. It's so nice to be somewhere with such a wide variety of people enjoying nature for diverse reasons. Whether you want to gain inspiration for your garden or have a cup of tea in a pretty place this is for you.

A very complete botanical garden!
Jun 2019
This is a must-see in Utrecht. A weel-design and pleasant garden with plenty to see! You just don't get bored in this place, since there is so many things to discover. Of course, different plants are the main issue, but the way the plants are exhibited is very interesting (either divided but types, or by uses, or by locations). You also have a marvellous butterfly greenhouse that is just amazing!

In the industrial area of Utrecht are the botanical gardens. A viraty of special plants that makes it an Oasis and a peacefull area. Also visit the butterfly area and see the spiecies around you. Nice visit with children also

Out of Town but a great outing
Aug 2019
The Botannical Garden of Utrecht, reacheable either by car of public transport is a heaven of peace with huge bamboo borders, water etc. Thirsty or hungry, there restaurant will serve you. In de weekend or for a luchbreak, this would be my favourite if I lived or worked in the area. Do not forget to visit their greenhouses that have an splendid array of plants, trees and cacti.
Enjoy.

Nice day out in Utrecht
Jun 2019 • Couples
Nice relaxing scenery and good day out in Utrecht. The butterfly garden is a must some of the species are beautiful. The cafe was lovely and great service and kind staff, great prices too. Loved the swings and the water features. Would only say have more benches in the shade as it was very hot when we went and struggled to find some that weren’t in the sun.

Don't dismiss this place as a O.A.P Stop Off
Aug 2018
One of the few places in The Netherlands you'll find a small mountain, complete with it's own waterfall.

Whilst my age'ed Mother In Law began her ascent of the rocky pathway, my 8 year old went dinosaur hunting. Then he took great delight in all the carnivorous plants and noted how close many of them were to the butterfly house. On retrieving the MIL from the North face of 'Mount Utrecht' we spent some time in the forest walk.

bad lunch but i would still go!
May 2019 • Friends
they had a different (smaller) menu than usual today. the sandwiches where cheaper at cost of the quality. i had a humus, grilled veggie sandwich. There was 1 grilled eggplant piece, 2 tiny tomatos and rucola. Not really what they described in the menu. I hope they get the old menu back again soon and this is not going to be the regular option.
