Hey babe, take a walk
on the wild side!
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!
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!
