Visit Botanical Garden

Discover the outdoor garden and greenhouses of this special green science gem in the middle of the city

Bezoek aan de buitentuin en de serres is gratis

As well as a large outdoor garden with an arboretum, rock garden and Mediterranean garden, the Botanical Garden also has 4,000 m2 of heated and unheated greenhouses. In total, the garden has over 10,000 plant species from all over the world.

Go on a journey of discovery through the different climate zones. Admire the giant water lilies in the Victoria Greenhouse, enjoy the fragrance of citrus flowers in the Subtropical Greenhouse and peer up at the African baobab in the Tropical Greenhouse. Relax for a while in the Succulent Greenhouse, the ideal biotope for succulents and cacti. The indoor and outdoor ponds are not just favourites with the public. They are also the perfect place to grow and research many different species of aquatic plants.

The Botanical Garden looks different every day.

You can see, feel and smell the coming and going of the seasons here.

Please note: the opening hours of the Botanical Garden are not always the same as those of the GUM. You can consult the opening hours here.
