“Beautiful garden year round”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2012

The Trompenburg estate is is a feast for the senses: it is colorful in spring and summer, it smells great and it's a quiet oasis in the city of Rotterdam. In May and June, about 500 varieties of Rhododendrons can be seen in full bloom. But there are beautiful flowers, plants and trees to enjoy year round. Check out their facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/trompenburgtuinen and/or their website: http://www.trompenburg.nl/ (it has a "English translation" button on it.
We'll be back there soon to see the reopened succulents greenhouse.

“A hidden treasure”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2012

These wonderful gardens are certainly one of Rotterdams best kept secrets. You don't see too many people, which is probably best for enjoying all the beautiful trees and plants. Don't tell anyone, but go there if you love gardens.
