Trompenburg Botanical Gardens & Arboretum

Attraction, Park/garden

Trompenburg Gardens & Arboretum is a botanical garden with a large collection of trees, shrubs, perennials, bulbs and tubers in Rotterdam on the edge of the city centre. The garden covers 8 hectares and is a paradise for peace seekers and green lovers!

The layout is diverse, with traditional English-style gardens, a developing food forest and a desert greenhouse with cacti and succulents. The gardens were first laid out some 200 years ago. And several years ago, the gardens were added to the list of (green) municipal monuments. The gardens are also an officially registered museum – ‘The Green Museum of Rotterdam’ – because of the extraordinary plant collections (including the national collection of oaks, beeches, holly and hostas that are housed there and the over 700 species of rhododendrons).
