All reviews butterfly house exotic plants different species beautiful butterflies large greenhouse interesting garden plant life butterfly area entrance fee artis zoo worth a visit couple of hours gift shop walk around cactus trees glasshouse
We haven’t seen such a variety of plants in such a small garden before. Though it may be small, it is perfectly formed.
The glasshouses were the highlight, especially as it is November, and the butterfly house was an absolute bonus!
This place was truly amazing. I come from a family operated garden center and this was totally up my alley! They have three different climate controlled greenhouses with hundreds of different types of plants. I was in AWE. There was even a “tasting greenhouse” where...More
I visited by myself on an overcast weekend in November and spent nearly 2 hours here wondering around looking at the flowers and trees. This place is fabulous and worth a visit, the entry fee is very reasonable given the time, effort and cost to...More
Pleasant gardens just to the east of the city centre . Contains glasshouses with different ecosystems to display plants from all over . There is a small greenhouse with wonderful tropical butterflies flitting about . Pleasant cafe - good lunches and super mint or ginger...More
These botanical gardens do a wonderful job in helping to preserve plants facing extinction. Some of their exhibits are thought provoking (such as the world's oldest potplants) and many make great photographs. However, the gardens are very small and relatively expensive. Really a place for...More
A nice visit among many different species of trees, plants and flowers. My favourite section, the one dedicated to cacti and succulents. The restaurant inside the Hortus serves quick and tasty dishes in a lovely atmosphere.
We stopped here for lunch and a quiet pause amongst the greenery during a packed sightseeing day. Apple tart was particularly good - how do they get that crispy base? The butterfly house was fun. Also some serious plants and some nice things in the...More
The eastern edge of central Amsterdam provides visitors with the chance to imagine the city that Rembrandt called home (and to tour his historic house) while shopping like the thriftiest of locals at Waterlooplein’s massive flea market, or even enjoying a craft beer beside the tallest wooden windmill in The Netherlands. This verdant, serene, and stately part of town is home to Artis Royal Zoo, one of Europe’s
oldest (and still best kept) zoos, and Hortus Botanicus, one of the oldest botanical gardens in the world. It's also an ideal setting for the Dutch outpost of St Petersburg’s Hermitage.
All year round, they have the palm trees and butterflies under cover but a significant part of the gardens are outside so if you are coming back in spring or summer then I'd wait until then. Especially as the entrance fee is... More
All year round, they have the palm trees and butterflies under cover but a significant part of the gardens are outside so if you are coming back in spring or summer then I'd wait until then. Especially as the entrance fee is the same all year round.
Perhaps a dozen or so late blooming tulip varieties were in planters (think buckets) along a short walkway, not the fields of plantings that are famously in the vicinity of Keukenhof. My visit to Hortus Botanicus was the... More
Perhaps a dozen or so late blooming tulip varieties were in planters (think buckets) along a short walkway, not the fields of plantings that are famously in the vicinity of Keukenhof. My visit to Hortus Botanicus was the last week of April. Early May tulips are possible, but any later would likely show fewer varieties is my guess.
