A beautiful arboretum in the heart of Rotterdam. Super pretty in the spring!

Seemingly away from the noisy city, this silent botanical garden is in its own corner of the universe while being right in the heart of Rotterdam. This lush garden really comes to life in the spring when it welcomes new colourful flowers to bloom, more greenery to thrive and visitors to enjoy the picturesque beauty that happens right here in Rotterdam.

  • Botanical paradise as tranquil as a private garden in a rural out of town enclosure, this easy to reach flora and fauna haven has a beautiful collection of plants and trees and a calm atmosphere.
  • Easily lose track of time here discovering the many different plant species, some relatively rare, all presenting interesting photo opportunities, along with a few beautiful sculptures and water features, adding to the picturesque mood of the grounds.
  • See the cactus greenhouse, a common visitor favourite! And be present in the moment with the bees, butterflies, birds and even turtles that peacefully roam around the gardens.
  • It is wheelchair-accessible and has plenty of resting places with lovely views
  • Walking tours of the gardens are on Sundays with friendly and knowledgeable staff.
  • You can also find the tea house here with a diverse menu. Try the cakes, they’re a delicious treat you won’t want to miss! At the last stop of your visit, there is a small gift shop with some quaint curios and original artworks.
