“A Gem!”
Reviewed 4 May 2014

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.

“Beautiful oasis”
Reviewed 17 April 2014 via mobile

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.

“Paradise in Rotterdam”
Reviewed 25 March 2014

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!

“Arboretum east of centre in leafy Kralingen residential area”
Reviewed 14 January 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”
Reviewed 8 January 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.
