The Oude Hortus

In the middle of the busy centre of Utrecht lies a unique garden: the Oude Hortus.

Housed at its current location since 1723, the garden boasts many special trees and plants, such as the 250-year-old Ginkgo biloba. In the summer, the Victoria Longwood, one of the largest species of water lily in the world, blooms in the greenhouse. In the stylish Ginkgo museum café, you can enjoy a quiet lunch or drink. The sunny terrace offers beautiful views of the garden and historic greenhouses.
