The Utrecht Botanic Gardens are among the oldest university gardens in the Netherlands - first constructed in 1639. Pack some sandwiches (and tissues for the hayfever?) and spend some time in this colorful retreat.

Walk over bridges, cross moats and stroll through beautiful spaces packed with unique flora and fauna.

See the result of 2,100 tons of boulders from the Ardennes in the Rock Garden. It's one of the largest in Europe (built in 1963).

Admire some stunning succulents in the Central Hall, and step into the heat of the Tropical Greenhouses, where the humidity helps cocoa, papaya, liana varieties, orchids and bromeliads, Passion flower and more to grow year-round.

With a birdhouse, a Bee Hotel and more, it's a blooming marvellous day out!
