Visitor information

Visitors are welcome to the Botanic Gardens from 1 March until 1 December.

The gardens open in spring as soon as the first spring flowering plants enliven the Botanic Gardens and stay open until late into autumn when beautiful seed heads, colourful berries and autumn leaves see out the season in style. The garden changes continuously with the seasons. During a range of public events, various aspects of plants and nature are placed in the spotlight.

The Fort Hoofddijk entrance building has a shop and a café

The Utrecht Botanic Gardens have a Facebook page (in Dutch) with lots of pictures and can also be followed on Twitter.
