Best for Romance - Expert review of Hortus Botanicus
Founded in 1638 as a medicinal herb garden, the Hortus Botanicus covers a mere three acres, but it packs an awful lot in. As well as an area still dedicated to medicinal herbs, gravel paths wend their way through to a rock garden, a butterfly house, the elegant, 19th-century Palm House containing a cycad that is claimed to be the world's oldest pot plant, and modern greenhouses that include an aerial walkway through the tropical canopy.
7.50 euros; over 65s and children 5-14 3.50 euros. Free for I amsterdam Card holders.
