Hortus Botanicus

Hortus Botanicus

If you visit Amsterdam, you can also visit one of the oldest Botanical gardens in the world, the Hortus Botanicus Amsterdam. It is a beautiful, intimate garden in the middle of the hustle and bustle of the center of Amsterdam. The garden feels like an oasis of peace; a flowery relief between all the sounds of the city. Take a walk and be amazed and informed about all the beauty that nature has to offer.

Oasis of peace

More than 4,000 varieties grow in the garden and greenhouses. Enjoy an ever-changing garden, greenhouses with butterflies and cacti, the monumental Palm House and the impressive Three Climate Greenhouse. A visit to the surprising museum shop and a delicious organic lunch or drink in the Orangery makes a visit complete.

Venue hire and photoshoot location

Besides visiting this beautiful garden, you can also hire a venue hire as your location for dinner, wedding or meeting. It is also possible to book the hortus as a photo & filmshoot location, for example as a wedding shoot location.

Hello, I’m Alison and I love my city. I’ve always believed Amsterdam has so much more to offer than what the guidebooks tell you. But as a visitor, it’s all too easy to get caught up in the highlights and miss out on having an authentic Amsterdam experience. That’s why I’m passionate about showing you my city from a truly local perspective.
