The Hortus Botanicus, created in 1682, has more than 6,000 different kinds of plants. There is a huge, almost futuristic, three-climate greenhouse with the flora of three different climates - tropics, subtropics and desert. Apart from this, there is a palm house with 300-year-old trees. During the autumn half-term holidays there is a Kabouterpad (dwarf path), a sort of hunt for children around 10 years old. On Wednesday afternoons and all day Saturday, children between 6 and 12 years old can join the Openluchtatelier (open air workshop) for drawing and painting. See website for complete list of amenities.
