“Arboretum east of centre in leafy Kralingen residential area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2014

The collection is presented on a large park with lots of waterways,ponds and canals.

The plots of land are connected by bridges and the atmosphere is very green and tranquil.
From april through october there is interest in both flower and berry ,may and june are especially lush.

Glasshouse with succulents and fuchia collection,lots of birdlife and even american swamp turtles.

Nearby "Hof-laan" has an impressive mix of dutch 18th, 19th,early 20th century architecture.

“Amazing variety of plants”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2014

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 surroundings. If you are at all interested in plants and/or you are tired of being dragged around the endless shopping streets of Rotterdam, this is a must! I will have to come back in spring. The gift shop is a bit expensive and the tearoom was shut.

“Peaceful & lovely place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2013

Rarely to find in a busy city like Rotterdam to see such a nice quiet and peaceful place!! Amazing and lovely to get away for a while, or for couple hours. Not expensive at all, you just have to pay less than 10 euro's per person. Worthy to relax yourself here
