Enjoy the greenery at the Utrecht Botanic Gardens

The Utrecht Botanic Gardens cover nine hectares and are overflowing with natural splendor. Discover the enormous rock garden, evolution garden, tropical greenhouses and the bird-watching hut in and around Fort Hoofddijk.

The miniature waterfall cascades gently, butterflies and other insects fly and crawl around to their heart’s content and a frog pops its head above water. Six gardens - each in their own style - are found in and around Fort Hoofddijk.

Discover the various gardens

The rock garden, for example, has tall herbs that grow in mountain valleys. Smell, look at, feel, taste and listen to the Discovery garden plants or follow the path of millions of years of evolution in the Evolution garden. Visit the greenhouses with their subtropical and tropical plants including many types of orchids, an apiary, a bird-watching hut where you can spot birds and learn all about our feathered friends. At the entrance (with its terrace), you can buy a great gift or enjoy a cup of coffee or lunch.
