Het was erg fijn om op een zonnige zondag middag door Hortus te wandelen. De verschillende kassen vond ik fascinerend, zo hebben ze bijvoorbeeld een kas met veel verschillende cactussen en een kas met tropische planten. In de kassen kun je vaak een trapje op en over bruggetjes de planten van boven bekijken, heel mooi! Ook de vlindertuin is een aanrader. Na het rondlopen een biologisch wit biertje gedronken op het terras met een kaasplankje :)

The Hortus Botanicus is a nice oasis of calm in the busy city centre of Amsterdam. It is a little on the small side, but that didn’t really bother me too much. A visit is a good way to spend some time away from the noisy city centre.

I always feel so peaceful after visiting the botanical garden. There is a nice palm house and the cactus area is great too. Would not recommend visiting in the winter though ;)
