The Hortus Botanicus Amsterdam is one of the oldest botanic gardens in the world. Located in the city centre of the Dutch capital, the garden is a beautiful and intimate place with an unique collection of plants. In the midst of busy city the Hortus offers an oasis of tranquillity, a flowery relief in the urban busyness.
The garden invites you to walk, observe and enjoy. Admire flowers, smell herbs, learn plant names, just relaxed in the sun - or in the shade or take a coffee at the most beautiful terrace of Amsterdam, surrounded by exotic container plants: it is all here.
The Hortus is open every day from 10 am to 5 pm.
Limited access from March 16 to July 15, 2015
The City of Amsterdam is currently working on the improvement of the Plantage Middenlaan and the entrance area of the Hortus Amsterdam. As a result our main entrance might be less accessible for some periods. However, we are still open from 10-17 hrs! We do apologize for the inconvenience. Should you have any questions, please contact one of our staff members.
