Rather than a botanics it reminded me of a private garden/estate which had been opened to the public. Note if going the second garden at the back where you scan your ticket in and out. Lovely oasis in rotterdam as much of rotterdam is sculpture and city. Good clean toilets. The Hut was very reasonably priced tea and amazing apple... More

Very beautiful designed botanic garden. Worth visiting in every season. Lovely teahouse (with only short opening hours, which is a pity)

My girlfriend and I visited in June 2014 and, whilst we did enjoy the visit, we didn't find it as amazing as the reviews suggested it to be. At €6.50 each, we didn't really get anything more out of it than a few pretty pictures. It really was lovely to walk around, but we didn't find the experience much different... More

What a magnificent garden! We were there when the rhodos and azaleas were peaking. If you are a real garden enthusiast you will truly appreciate the planning that went into this Eden. The sheep add to the feeling of serenity. Specimen trees throughout the arboretum.

Went with my family. We all enjoyed the great variety of beautiful plants. Very tidy, nicely looked after with care. The kids liked the turtoises that sat along the small canal. Nice smells of spring and newly cut grass. A cosy stroll in beautiful surroundings.

I've been a visitor of the Arboretum Trompenburg for many years. I absolutely love this place. It has grown in size over the years. The best time to visit? In may-june, when al the Rhododendrons and Azalea's are flowering. But it is a cleansing experience any time of the year!

Even in the middle of winter it is well worth visiting this place. An exotic variety of shapes and colours can be found on an amazing collection of pine trees and other evergreens. The hostas are not visible at this time, but there is plenty to keep the observant interested and plenty of space to simply drift around in peaceful... More
