The Hortus - Botanic Garden Amsterdam

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.

Discover the flowering Victoria waterlily!

The Hortus is open every day from 10 am to 5 pm.

Our Victoria waterllily is flowering again! The flower of this beautiful amazone species opens up in the evening. Early flowering can be spotted at the end of the afternoon, or late flowering in the early morning. Every flower only blooms 2 nights, then dies off. Our Victoria plant will show several flowers per summer. During one of those events, the Hortus will stay open for 1 night to show its public the beaty of the Victoria waterlily.
