“A peacefull place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

In a busy city like Rotterdam it's a really nice quiet and peacefull place to get away for a couple of hours.
Not expensive as far as I remeber. Less than 10 euro's per person.

“Awesome green spot, relax and enjoy wonderful plants, cactus, flowers and trees.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2013

When you arrive at Rotterdam Central railway station, take tram 21 or 24 (direction De Esch and stop Woudestein) and within half an hour you will be surrounded by wonderful trees, plants, flowers and cactus in the Arboretum Trompenburg. This place was recommended by my eternal travelling dad and I read lots of positive reviews on Tripadvisor. But I was really blown away by this awesome green spot: a very quiet and relaxing spot, a wide range of wonderful plants and flowers, beautiful lanes and small bridges, a nice voliere with small exotic birds and an exciting greenhouse that is dedicated to cactus, what a spectacular collection of all sorts of cactus, my favorite plant! You can walk to the Teahouse or take a break at the small restaurant/shop at the entrance, it all looks very welcoming, clean and green, highly recommended!
