The city's botanical garden is home to an impressive variety of trees, flowers, shrubs and herbs collected from all over the planet. The collection began to be assembled in the second half of the 19th century. The garden is divided into several thematic zones; a system of canals and ponds has been created on the territory. Thanks to the magnificent landscape design, the park has become a favorite walking place for the townspeople.

Very pleasant garden, well cared. A paradise in the city. It could be nice if the plants have new labels as some are already old and difficult to read. The teashops are very nice and the staff is friendly. Easy to park outside.
Highly recommended for nature and botanical garden lovers. Many paths to explore and just get lost in the serene beauty of nature both curated and wild.

€5,75 young adult discount. As I arrived in late afternoon, it was a quick visit 1:40h.
As it was the 1st of May, the majority of the flowers were in bloom, so it was a pretty walk around the park.
My only suggestion would be to add more details.. Read more » about the kind of terranium / plants they are, where they originate from, what their growth looks like, their reproduction...
The small botanic garden in Naples is one of my favourites because of all the hand written details and images (in Italian, but Google translate lens works) they provide on some beautiful ceramic tiles.

Amazing place! Beautiful landscaping, plants and flowers. Was like heaven on earth. Went with the family, everyone enjoyed including the kids
I had a nice Sunday afternoon here thanks to the sunny weather. This place is a lot bigger than I expected and it took me some time to find the greenhouses I was looking for.

A very nice huge garden with so many types of trees and other plants! Great to walk around you can get lost here for hours.. also loved the greenhouses with cacti!

Was here on a party with my family. It was in a big glass tent. This was a bit unfortunate with the heat. Outside it was only 15 degrees but inside it felt like 35.

Small nice botanical garden. You can spend 2h with a short walk, drinking a tea, enjoying the sun.
Beautiful in all seasons! Great place for about two hours, including a nice cup of tea. Entry fee of 10 euro is fairly pricey for the garden, worth it in spring and summer. Free entry with the Rotterdampas and Museumkaart make it worth it once every .. Read more »season

The map looks huge and you can walk it all in 15min. Honestly, send your management to Eden Project in UK, or any arboretum in Melbourne/Sidney so they can learn what to do. Biggest waste of time and money of my visit to Netherlands. Go to Het Park, is not an arboretum but for a park is just better. (Went in March 24th, sunny for weeks apparently)
Nice place yo relax and have a walk. Beautiful nature and birds
I recommend going in spring/fall since other times there’s really not much to see. A rather small arboretum with a cute café inside.
