Why locals love it

I guess you forget how calming nature is to your mind when you live or stay in a big city. So many things to do and see, why waste time on 'relaxing'?! Well, Hortus is a place where I go to when I want a) to destress and b) to see beautiful mesmerizing stuff - aka beautiful pathways, flowers, trees, butterflies, exotic plants in warm greenhouses...

Why you should visit it

What I am saying is that at the Hortus you feel like you've entered another world - yet it still has the exciting thrill of the city. There are so many wonderful things to discover there, as you pass by scenic gardens that remind you of childhood-fairytales. In wintertime I love going into the greenhouse and fantasize that I'm in the tropics!

Special tip

When you're done strolling, treat yourself to a warm drink/nice lunch in their beautiful café - or peek inside: the interior is like a work of art!

There’s nothing quite like walking out of a city and into a different world. It’s as if you enter some tropical place in the far east of the world. Amazing.

The tropical area and butterfly house are my favorites. It's not a huge place so it's great for a few hours of relaxation.
