Hortus Botanicus Amsterdam
The Hortus Botanicus in Amsterdam is one of the oldest botanic gardens in the world. Today, there are more than 4,000 species growing in the gardens and greenhouses.
The Hortus is located near the hectic centre of Amsterdam. However, behind the 300-year-old gates, the bustle of the city seems to disappear. Originally, the Hortus was a medicinal herb garden, founded in 1638. Thanks to the ships of the Dutch East India Company (VOC), the Hortus expanded quickly in the 17th and 18th centuries.
The VOC ships brought not only new herbs and spices, but also exotic ornamental plants. In fact, some examples of the present collection date from that time. Today, the garden and greenhouses accommodate plants from no less than six different climates.
This year, The Hortus Botanicus in Amsterdam celebrates its 375th anniversary and their Palm Greenhouse will play host to a spectacular photo and film exhibition. Tropisme will exhibit their interesting art works and plant life is captured using photo techniques, such as infrared, x-ray or microscope-lenses with the resulting images highlighting the almost alien nature of plants.
In July and August this year, Enjoy live jazz, tango, Latin, blues or pop music while exploring the tropical collection. End your day out with a drink and some tapas on the terrace of the Oranjerie until 7pm.
