Great place to spend a sunny afternoon! Luscious trees all around, benches, grass that invites a picnic and a small café for coffee and a sweet treat. If you have a museumkaart there is no entrance charge.

The Arboretum is one of the botanic garden of Rotterdam: situated nearby the University (Tram 21/24 Woudestein), it is enjoyable in all seasons: you will have the opportunity to see different types of flowers and birds all around. This is so peaceful to go there and it's very cheap. I particularly loved the greenhouse and the bird aviary!

Arboretum Trompenburg is somewhere in between a park and a botanical garden, that is a botanical garden that feels more cozy and relaxing. It still one of my favorite spots to relax in Rotterdam, nice plants, conveniently placed benches to relax, and a nice cafe in the middle of it. The entrance fee is around 6 euros, but if I... More

During our trip in Rotterdam we visited the arboretum and it was perfect. It is a beautiful garden with different types of trees and flowers, a small spring. It is a quiet place, perfect for a slow and relaxing walk. It has also lots of benches if someone wants to rest or just to sit and enjoy the view. It... More

The variety of trees, shrubs and flowers is very rich. Wisterias of many varieties in bloom and smelling wonderful. A new vista round every corner and a superb mix of colours. We had a very pleasant and informative guide and were encouraged to take our time during the visit. Easily reached by tram from the city centre. The stock in... More

The collection of trees from all over the world transplanted to this special garden is at least as spectacular as the flowers and flowering bushes and canals with their ornate bridges. Rarely crowded except for Sundays, it's a haven of tranquility and bird song and scented air. I live near it and so have a season pass. It's also free... More

Hidden on the edge of the center of Rotterdam you find this garden. Very beautifull and quiet for a nice stroll. Beware that the neighbouring football club Excelsior does not have a home game, that might spoil your walk if quiet is what you are looking for.

You have to pay 6.50 at the visitors center where you'll be greeted by a sweet little old Lady who'll explain the area to you and give you a map. It's a super nice walk around the park and take in all the greenery: the various trees, ponds, ducks, and flowers. There are many benches around so you can sit... More
