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.

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.
